Directed by Kim Ji-hoon and produced by JK Youn (Tidal Wave), the sci-fi action thriller Sector 7 revolves around an oil rig crew forced to battle a deadly creature at sea. Hae-jun works at an offshore rig in Sector 7, a real-life joint-development zone that harbors Koreas hopes of one day becoming energy-independent. Her greatest dream is to find oil, an obsessive quest that has yielded no results. Along with a crew that includes Dong-soo and ship captain Jeong-man, Hae-jun decides to conduct one last drilling expedition before withdrawing as instructed by headquarters. But when things start to go dreadfully wrong on the rig, the crew is overwhelmed by the disconcerting feeling that something is out there . . .

What did I like? I'm a fan of monster films so I definitely liked the subject. The monster's design was also cool. The film has bits of comedy spread out across the film that I actually liked. The best part of the film was the action, though. As soon as the monster appears, it's thrill after thrill after thrill. In one word: THRILLING! It has a couple of slow-motion scenes that I actually enjoyed, even though it was over-done sometimes. Also, the pacing was fast and smooth. The whole concept of being stuck on an oil rig with a monster was creepy and effective. The acting was fine most of the time, and the music was good. Ultimately, it's an absolute blast to watch!
What did I dislike? Sector 7 really doesn't try anything new. The explanation of the monster's creation was new, but not really extraordinary. Also, some scenes just looked very bad, particularly the scenes on the motorcycles. I believe this is because I watched the 2D version, but it still looked and felt out of place. The ending was also generic and predictable, which I didn't expect coming from South Korea (they usually don't follow the same Hollywood formula).
I highly recommend checking out Sector 7. It's a great action-horror film. It had elements from movies like The Host, Relic, Deep Rising, and Aliens; it may not be better than Aliens and The Host, but it's up there with them.Read more ›
A few men will display heroics, but you know what happens to those guys in a movie like this. In short, there will be no deviation from similar monster movies.
The main draw for me was the starlet, Ha Ji Won, who is a veteran of the Korean movie/TV industry at the young age of 34. Here are a few samples of her other starring roles available here on Amazon:
- Secret Garden
- Tidal Wave [Blu-ray]
- Sex Is Zero
The creature in question is quite ugly, detailed, and nicely animated. However like many lower-budget CGI films, the monster looked a little "off" from the rest of the world. So a suspension of belief will be necessary to accept the monster as `real', and enjoy the movie; the payoff is in the final battle between Hae Jun & the monster.
In conclusion, I cannot really recommend this movie as a "must see" or "must buy", despite my fondness of Ha Ji Won and monster films in general. Still... the movie is a fair purchase to those:
- That enjoy B monster fares.
- A fan of the actress.
- The price is reasonable to you.
- General collector of films.
