First of all, Gwoemul propably had the best plot I have ever seen in a movie of this genre. It all starts off seeming like some cliched Godzilla-copy, but the moment we meet our so-called main character, Kan-Du, his occasional dialogue and overall attitude prepare us for something diffe... read more

"Have any of you heard it? The heartbreak of a parent who's lost a child... When a parent's heart breaks, the sound can travel for miles. So I really need to say this to you. Be as nice to Gang-du as you can. Don't scold him, okay?" Korean cinema is often highly regarded by critics and film buffs alike, as South Korean filmmakers produce horror films and action-thrillers with more verve and creat... read more

The movie started off really good, with the first 1/3 or so being some of the best monster action I've seen. The effects are great through out the entire movie (fire is hard to do so I won't count the ending). My only big issue with this movie is how it gets really hard to tell how much time has passed. A lot of things point towards the movie being set during a couple of weeks (the military respon... read more

" Director: Bong Joon Ho His 3rd movie My 3rd movie watched from the director You can see the mastery at work here, with a small budget. Bong's direction and cleverness shine above the primitive production. There are moments where it almost becomes a silly monster movie, but he reminds us it's more with his metaphors, strong direction, and solid characters and cast.

"4.11. Bongin hirviökauhistelussa on omat hirviöhetkensä ja omat kauhunhetkensä. Syntytarina huvittaa, ja pa(r)h(a)immillaan elokuva muistuttaa Jokerin tavoin, kuinka we live in a society. Latteuksien alle on kuitenkin käykeytynyt ihan oikeinkin pätö tarina, jossa on ihan oikeita tunteitakin."
