***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
Q & A Session Premiere Event
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.Read more ›
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.
Watch it; buy iy.
