Editorial Reviews

A young police officer is transferred from Seoul to a small village in the countryside for duty when he jokingly checked the box to be deployed "anywhere." Arriving at the village, he encounters a bumbling police force who is working with a special detective to resolve some recent murders. As the bodies add up, it becomes clear that the gruesome deaths are attributed to a beast of an animal with a voracious appetite for human flesh. A famous hunter and his team are called in to track and destroy the man-eater. During their tracking expedition, they are confronted by a boar of massive size and strength, which they discover may be a result of experimentation during wartimes. Unprepared and unarmed for taking down the mutant creature, the group must disband as the hunters become the hunted.

This review is for the Blu-Ray version of Chawz by Magnolia Home Entertainment

***IMPORTANT***: This movie is not in English but you can watch it with English subtitles.

This movie was surprisingly good. I didn't think I would like it very much but I was wrong. I was actually tempted to give it 5 stars but I can't say that it is 5 star good. It just always seems like movies are better than what they are when your expectations are low. There is lots of humor. In a way it sort of reminded me of another South Korean film, 'The Host.' Not that the two are similar other than a creature killing people. It's the approach to the movie that is similar....the way they used humor during serious situations.

BLU-RAY DVD: The quality is decent but not 4k beautiful like some of the newer blu-ray DVD's. The colors often seemed washed out and the lighting is nothing to write home about. I'm not sure how much of a difference there is between the blu-ray and standard DVD.

EXTRA'S: Lots of extra's on this disc. They are:
3 Making of Chawz featurette's
Deleted Scenes
Q & A Session Premiere Event
Blooper Reel
International Trailer

PLOT/SUMMARY: Police Officer Kim Kang-soo is reassigned from a big city(Seoul) to a small town that supposedly has no crime (it's an ongoing joke). The police that are in this town are completely incompetent and the head of police provides lots of comic relief throughout the movie as he attempts to delegate jobs to his inferiors, especially those jobs he doesn't wish to do himself (which is just about everything). Officer Kim moves to the small town along with his pregnant wife and his mother who is mentally ill. His mother is in the movie for the purpose of providing a lot more comic relief.

I found myself waiting for this film to end about 20 minutes into it.
It was bogged down by silly Korean slapstick that wasn't very funny,and it took quite awhile to establish a storyline.

The characters were uninteresting and some most unnecessary.Although there were a couple of characters that I did like,it wasn't enough.The gore factor was virtually non existent and that's usually one reason we watch giant marauding creature flicks.

The pro is that the monster effect was quite good but you can't get into a movie just because the creature effect is good,there has to be some sort of motivation to keep you watching be it storyline,interesting and likable characters or even "good" comedy which I felt there was none of the above. I was really looking forward to it because I saw Pig Hunt and really enjoyed that giant killer Boar film.I say skip this one and watch Pig Hunt,you won't have to read subtitles either,and I just watched "The Man From Nowhere and loved every minute of it subtitles and all,so I have no problem reading them for if the film is good.

This movie is great! It's funny and scary! There are some really funny, laugh out loud parts and then suddenly you're jumping out of your skin from being scared! Unique and very well done! Very refreshing movie!

Being a huge fan of South Korean cinema ("The Host", "Old Boy", "A Tale Of Two Sisters", "Bedevilled", "Natural City", "Save The Green Planet", "Mother", "Memories Of Murder", "Secret Sunshine", "Phone", "The Isle", "I'm A Cyborg But That's Ok", "Haeundae", "Conduct Zero", "Bunshinsaba", "Samaritan Girl", "3-Iron", "Hansel & Gretel", "The Red Shoes" and many, many more.), I am happy to say that "Chaw" delivered exactly what I was expecting: quirky fun with some monster action spliced in. The Police Chief dude that keeps asking for his club is absolutely hilarious! The blu-ray transfer is very nice. The film is just mindless fun with some interesting characters. Kudos to Magnolia/Magnet for picking up this film. I REALLY HOPE THEY PICK UP "Bedevilled" next for a blu-ray release.

I guess I was expecting a better movie because of the DVD cover.The 1st 15-20 minutes were alright.I LOVED the slapstick & I couldn't keep myself from laughing but after awhile it just gets boring.Chawz had a Sci Fi Channel feel to it & I wouldn't be suprised if it showed up on their channel in the future.I'd tell you to go watch it if you're into these type of flicks but if you're not then I'd tell you don't bother

This is a Korean send-up of "Jaws," and great fun. the characters and acting are memorable, production is top-rate, and it is a very amusing, interesting, and absorbing film. Very funny in places with the signature great Korean sense of humor.

Watch it; buy iy.
