This is a horribly edited, watered down version of the film. Apparently Fox Studios thought it was too much for American audiences to handle so they literally edit and completely take out some of the films most defining, and intense scenes. This film is NOT worth owning with this cut. They basically take the movie from NC-17 to PG-13. I know it's R, but they even dumb down some of the dialogue to not make the movie be so grim. This is a non-Western action movie, and it's very obvious. So much so, Fox EDITED out everything that makes Korean films Korean. If you're a fan of The Chaser, I Saw the Devil, Oldboy or any of the other great Korean thrillers out there. Imagine all the action being cut out. You don't see the raw, realistic, horrific killings. You don't get the full fight scenes. You're watching a product stripped of its artistry and soul because Fox doesn't think you can handle it. What's worse, they didn't even release a BLU-RAY of this movie yet THEY MADE Korea's blu-ray release NOT include English subtitles to prevent people from around the world from importing it. They do that, and then don't even give you the actual product. Please, torrent this movie with soft coded subtitles or wait for UK's blu-ray to come out. It'll require a multi-region blu-ray player, but you'll get to see the film in high def and as the director intended. Not as Fox intended.

As the previous reviewer, Jarrett "2cC," has warned, the American version of this film by Fox is not the version to view or purchase. Instead, you can currently obtain the blu-ray Korean director's cut from yesasia.com, complete with the director's commentary.

Format: DVD
Officially, there are two releases of the film: A Theatrical Cut which was released in Korean theaters and clocks in at 156 minutes; A Director's Cut which was released internationally and clocks in at 140 minutes. The Theatrical Cut is only available in S. Korea on DVD and BR and is one of the few Korean releases which does not have English subtitles thanks to Fox International stipulations. The Director's Cut just received a DVD and Blu-ray release in the UK. Unfortunately, both are region-coded. The latter is not a problem if you have a region-free DVD/Blu-ray which can be had for a reasonable price nowadays.

As for this particular release, not only did Fox International skip the Blu-ray format, they made their own edits to the Director's Cut of the film by removing three minutes from it. I have seen the full cut of the film and I can assure you the violence in it is not any worse than what you'd see in a typical episode of The Walking Dead. The demographic of this movie is highly likely to be those who saw the director's first film "The Chaser" which was quite gritty and violent. This is not the kind of film Mr. Joe Sixpack would seek so why go through the trouble of watering it down?!

I just find it ironic that Fox International would partly finance the production of this film and buy the distribution rights to it then treat it and dump it like a straight-to-video 'B' movie.

Director Na Hong-jin's "The Chaser" shattered several box-office records in Korea and even won two major film awards in the 2008 Grand Bell Awards (best director and best film). Now, almost four years after its release, Na Hong-jin's follow up film finally gets released in the U.S. by Fox. "The Yellow Sea" was originally released in 2010 and received some coverage in the Cannes film festival. Those who have seen Na's first movie would remember "The Chaser" as a tightly-wound thriller that channels a lot of emotion and was a film based on a true story. "The Yellow Sea" may not be based on a true event, but rather based on the Joseonjoks in a region between China, Russia and Korea.

There has been some confusion as to what is the director's cut of this movie since the film originally debuted as a 156 minute movie in Korea while the director's cut is 140 minutes long. The U.S. Dvd being released by Fox only has a runtime of 137 minutes. I have done my research and the shorter, tighter 140 minute version is indeed Na Hong-jin's director's cut. This review is based on this 140 minute version, and honestly, it is so hard to spot the difference between the 140 and 137 minute versions. Perhaps it is because the U.S. NTSC Dvd was converted from the U.K. PAL format? I have no idea.

In the Yanbian province of China, Gu-Nam (Ha Jung-Woo), an ethnic Korean or a Joseonjok, is a disadvantaged cab driver whose evenings are mostly consists of hanging around gambling halls and drinking. He is also neck-deep in debt as he had taken a loan from gambling sharks in order for his wife to be able to legally migrate into Korea. To make matters worst, he has not heard from her since she left and is tormented by nightmares of her extra-marital affair while being hounded by his debt collectors.

Some of the reviews are completly off. This cut was made by the director because he was not satisfied with the Korean theatrical cut that was too rushed. This edit is now color corrected and is much tighter in the 2nd half and better for it.

While "The Yellow Sea," never quite reaches the harrowing heights of director Na Hong-jin's first (and enthusiastically recommended) feature film, the internationally acclaimed suspense thriller, "The Chaser," "The Yellow Sea," remains a terrific action film, anchored by a sympathetic and expressive performance by the lead actors, a movie that one reviewer from a major paper wrote, puts the action in the service of a story of surprising moral weight. (The same could be said for "The Chaser," come to think of it.)

Ha Jung-woo (who played the deceptively innocent-looking serial killer in "The Chaser") plays Gu-nam, a cab driver living in an impoverished area of Northeast China. Gu-nam is both deeply in debt (for reasons revealed as the film goes on) and tortured by not knowing what happened to his wife since she traveled oversea to South Korea months earlier, in a desperate search for paying work. Playing opposite Ha's Gu-nam is Kim Yun-seok (the disgraced cop turned pimp, and reluctant anti-hero of "The Chaser"), alternately terrifying and comedic as Myun-ga, a local gang boss who quietly dominates the trade in illegal immigrants from NE China to S. Korea, and one day, offers Gu-nam a devil's bargain: follow in his wife's footsteps and venture to S. Korea, discover what happened to her, in exchange for killing a S. Korean businessman while there (and thus wipe the slate clean of the debts they accrued in the north).

After a long, difficult journey by sea, Gu-nam painstakingly shadows his target, learning the man's routines, while hunting down clues to his wife's whereabouts. What follows is full of twists and turns, as Gu-Nam soon finds himself the quarry of the S.
