I was one of three patrons of a local theatre showing this film, which opened yesterday, Friday, August 7.
Plot wise the story contunues to highlight family, in this instance a captain and the brother in law he is estranged from, and a second anchored by an aging grandfather who could easily been dismissed as senile, his very strong daughter and her two girls.
Throw in HK gangsters and a dishounored former military unit doing its best to survive in Inchon.
Shake and stir.
The action is non stop, which actually distracts from the adversaries' character development and any actual suspense or mystery.
Everyone is too well armed, quite the contrary to TRAIN TO BUSAN which was pared down to just the necessary.
Its characters served a purpose that propellled the story along, and those characters were of interest, so their demise was felt.
I did not know the lead actor, though I have seen enough Korean films. I would not place to much blame on his shoulders.
If i wanted to see a Mad Max clone, I wouldn't, I would watch the originals.
