Editorial Reviews

"Woochi" begins in the Chosun Dynasty in 1509 and involves a trio of Taoist wizards, a magician named Jeon Woo Chi (Dong-won Kang) and his dog turned man, a corrupt king, evil goblins, and a prophetic pipe everyone is after. Eventually Jeon Woo Chi becomes sealed inside an ancient scroll for a crime he did not commit. Jumping ahead to the year 2009, the wizards are called out of peaceful retirement as goblins start appearing in modern Korea to wreak havoc all around. The trio call on Jeon Woo Chi, who is released from his ancient scroll entrapment, in to save the day. Problem is Jeon Woo Chi, a kind of anti-superhero, becomes more interested in sight-seeing and womanizing in modern day Korea.

This was a great sorcery martial art film.

I do have to say that while most of the CGI were good, there were times that they looked rather soft and you could tell that they were fake.
Woopak
The movie had a good story line and it was funny.

I bought this based on a trailer I viewed on another Cine-Asia production I purchased: Detective Dee & The Mystery of the Phantom Flame [Blu-ray]. This movie comes out of Korea, whereas "Dee" is a Hong Kong film (I rated "Dee" at 5 stars). "Woochi" also goes under a couple of alternate titles including Jeon Woo Chi (The Tao Fighter) and Jeon Woo Chi (Taoist Wizard).

Though listed as playable in region B/2 (Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand) when I bought it, this is another Cine-Asia production that appears to be region free (i.e., I can play it on my US of A cheapo Magnavox blu-ray player). However, just like the Detective Dee film, trying to play most of the extras, such as "deleted scenes," resulted in the same frantic "Not Support!!!" message. This is likely because most of the special features are in the PAL format which my poor console apparently can't handle. Again, the movie itself plays fine.

I play this on a 40 inch HD TV via HDMI hookup, and the quality appears to be as good as blu-ray cuts usually are, but not exceptionally so. This version (Cine-Asia blu-ray) is in Korean audio with English subtitles. It's a bit long at 136 minutes, but since I don't see a lot of Korean films, the costumes and settings are interesting enough so that when things are a bit slow I just enjoy looking at the differences.

Long ago there were demons locked in the heavens guarded by a person playing a magic flute. The demons escaped and came to earth in human form, the flute likewise came to earth. The demons are in human form looking for the flute. Meanwhile there are two rival Tao groups after the flute wanting to contain the demons.

The story becomes complex. One "self taught" Tao Master is Jeon Woo-chi (Dong-won Kang) who likes to play tricks and seeks fame against the basic Tao code. There is also a woman who doesn't like needle work, and a man who acts as Woo-Chi's horse, but is really a dog. There are three Shinsuns who work for the opposing Tao master. Oh yeah, there is a bronze sword too.

The film contains magic and illusion. It freely mixes the two. It takes place 500 years in the past and the present. It has magician battles, gravity defying moves, CG monster effects, and some humor. The modern Woo-Chi assumes the clothes of the "King of Pop."

The English translation sounded like a bad spaghetti western. The deleted scenes are in Korean with subtitles available. Like many eastern films, it is easy to lose yourself in the characters and story so you must pay attention. This film isn't for everyone.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. soft 4 stars

This was a great sorcery martial art film. It had some great fight scenes and cool sorcery and some funny humor. Woochi is worth the price.

This South Korean film throws everything into the mix - good actors, wild stunts, cool special effects, nasty demons and goofy wizards and sages trying to save the world, or at least Seoul. Pulled from his imprisonment, Woochi is yanked into the 21th century to battle immortal demons who have lived since his own ancient times of wizardry. Woochi needs to adjust to modern times before he cam battle the savvy shape-shifting demons and the grand wizard who wants to control the human world

Maybe the word "incorrigible" was invented 500 years ago so people could hang the most fitting adjective on Jun Woochi. 500 years ago would plant Jun Woochi in the Josean Dynasty. He's the sort of scamp who, when tasked by his Tao master to run errands, would instead hie himself to the royal palace to make a fool of the king. See? Incorrigible.

It's a South Korean fantasy action film that released in 2009. It's written and directed by Choi D0ng-hoon who this one time shrugged off his habit for making popular heist pictures. I don't know enough about Korean folklore, so I couldn't tell you if the fantasy elements in the film are thus rooted. Anyway, it's a complicated mythology. So let's roll with this: 500 years ago there was a mystical flute and these ancient supernatural creatures who'd forgotten themselves and now walk the world in the shape of man. The hint for the flute brings together disparate parties. Three old wizards. A demon or two. The learned physician Hwadam (Kim Yoon-seok). And our scamp Jun Woochi (Kang D0ng-won), his shape shifting dog Chorangyi (Yoo Hae-Jin), and their wise master (Baek Yoon-sik). Inevitably, sh-- goes down.

Maybe I should insert a SPOILER alert for this paragraph... How many martial arts flicks are there where the master gets killed and the student seeks vengeance? It's what's up here. Jun Woochi is charged with his master's murder. Passing sentence, the three old wizards consign him (and his dog, too!) into a scroll, there to languish 500 years.

Five centuries later we catch up to modern-day Seoul. Those three old wizards are still hanging around. And when demons (all two of them) terrorize the city, what's left but to spring Woochi from his parchment prison and sic them on the monsters?
