It's a bit difficult to write a review about a film that's supposedly one of the (if not)most expensive films to come out of South Korea. I would definitely try to consider the effort made by the filmmakers, director Kwak Gyeong Taek`s "Typhoon" boasts of a staggering budget in the nation's history. The film has been shot in different locations such as Pusan, Thailand and Russia with a partial international cast. This film is reminiscent of South Korean films such as the terrific "Shiri" (my first experience with a Korean film), Park Chan-Wook`s J.S.A., "Taek Guk Gi" and "Silmido" with the tensions between North and South Korea as its main premise.

Plot synopsis loosely based on the dvd back cover:
July 2004, In the waters of South Asia, pirates board an American ship to steal its cargo of satellite guidance receiver systems; the type used for nuclear missiles. When the deed is discovered, the main culprit originated from North Korea; a terrorist named "Sin" (Jang Kun-Dong). The South Korean side sends in special agent Gang (Jeong Jae Lee) to follow the trail of the rogue agent to recover the stolen system, carefully trying to piece together the remnants of Sin's past. Sin apparently fled from N. Korea with his family, all of whom were killed in the attempt; except for his sister (Lee Mi-Yeon).
Blaming both North and South Korea for the death of his family, Sin has dedicated himself in destroying both countries. He plots a scheme that will painfully cause the death of millions in the Korean peninsula. The fate of both countries hang in the balance....

"Typhoon" has a very strong plot, it is complex and full of emotional content. The film is structured to reveal its secrets in a gradual fashion after its first act.

Format: DVD
First, a note about this DVD version. The US version that I've seen is 108 mins, not 124. I believe this version is the shorter one. Also, the US version is full screen, 1.33, not 1.66. I'm not sure if it's a misprint on Amazon's part. Better to go with the DTS version from asia, anyway. You can be sure it's uncut and retains the full aspect ratio. My review is of that version.

"Typhoon" is a movie that I wanted to like. And fortunately for me, I did. I've seen it described in many different ways, most of which turned out to be inaccurate. First and foremost, it is not an action movie. Yes, there are action sequences, but not enough to make it an action movie. The action plays out more like a Michael Mann film than a Michael Bay film. The film is more of what I'd call a suspense/thriller with some espionage. Yeah, there's gunfights. But more time is spent with the opposing parties trying to outsmart each other.

This is also a movie I'd describe as being big, especially for Korea. There's some very big and very well done CGI in the final act that really is impressive. The narrative isn't bad and the story plays out well. One of the few weaknesses of the film is the characters.

There's actually so much substance given to the antagonist that you almost feel sorry for him and want him to succeed in his plan. Ironically, the protagonist, to me, felt more shallow because they tried to tack on a backstory. I actually felt like he had more depth before they started bringing up his history. Although not an overly verbose fella, his subtleties, facial expressions, reactions to those around him- gave me a very big look at who this guy was.

Where "Typhoon" really shines is in its story. First off, the scheme the antagonist plans to unleash is very unique.
