Of all of the Asian Horror DVD movies in my personal collection [that were] purchased on the International market, this is the one-- along with "Tyakusin Ari" (aka "One Missed Call") --I totally had NOT expected would be picked up for official "Region-1" DVD release. I don't know what this all means from the DVD marketers' perspective, but I'm beginning to have my... umm... "suspicions."

Here we have a movie that is neither exclusively "good" nor exclusively "bad" -- just weighed heavily in "ambivalence."

The main theme of the story is intriguing enough: A forensic facial reconstructionist, distraught over the death of his wife and additionally burdened with caring for his deathly ill little daughter, submits his resignation from police work even as he is being begged to stay on due to the sheer volume of work still needed to be done which requires his expertise. He is "involuntarily" coaxed back into service by a young new protege and by a number of "unexplained phenomena" surrounding a new skull he has been asked to offer his help with.

Complicating matters is the repeatedly unstable condition of his sickly daughter -- who had undergone a very dangerous & difficult heart transplant surgery that required a very rare type of "organ donor match" in order for the surgical procedure to have even the slightest chances of success (a "MacGuffin" referred to in the movie as "Beta Alergic"). "Inspired," if you will, by a thread of ghostly apparitions and other related inexplicable sights & sensations, the specialist becomes convinced that the spirit connected to the latest skull in his possession will not rest quietly until it has been given its face back.

"Face" is a typical example of a nice Korean thriller that contains all the necessary for a genre details. It has elements of a horror movie, of cops-vs-maniac films, of a criminal thriller. Director Sang-Gon Yoo keeps the action tense and fast-going so you won't get bored. The story involves a lot of things: gruesome murders after which the murderer dissolves bodies in acid, face-reconstruction, illegal organ transplantation and ghostly apparitions. I know told this way it all may seem a one big mess but finally all the segments of this intricate film perfectly fit like parts of a puzzle.

You'll definately get a twist in the end like you've probably expected. Yes, the scheme this movie is based on is quite recognizable but you can never know all the details... And details make this picture memorable. I must note a perfect acting from all the main performers - I was pleasantly surprised. The cunning story-line, plus great acting and superior directing make "Face" a remarkable film among all other Korean and Asian in general thrillers.

Partly I have to agree with the reviewer 'Ace-of-Stars' who says all those Sadacoesque appearances were absolutely unnecessary. I think they were a bit worn-out but they seemed to fit the story well and this girl with long black hair was actually needed for the script. So... It already became a trademark of Asian horror cinema like a blind (crippled, unpretty, timid - pick any) girl who stays alive in the end of American slashers.

"Face" is definately worth watching, it's not a minute boring, it's well crafted and intense although at the same time pensive like many Korean films.

I was surprised by this movie. I wasn't expecting what unwinded in this plot. It's about a man who works with clay to create a face to skulls found at crime scenes. He is helped by an assistant (intern) who is learning so much from her instructor. He, under the stress of trying to cope with a young daughter who received a heart transplant, doesn't realize that there is something odd about his assistant and how she and his daughter have a bonding that unravels at the end of the movie. I was expecting fear as with other Asian Horror but instead I got a wonderful and touching movie. It was different from the norm, it's worth buying.

There's this guy who does facial reconstructions for the police. His daughter is about to undergo heart transplantation but he is handed a case which he refuses to look after his daughter.
He is "sent" an assistant and, after much supernatural trauma (many familiar motifs here), he decides to accept the case.
The beauty of this film is that it takes you here, then there, then somewhere else and ultimately leaves you not knowing the direction you're going in...until you've got there.
It's a good one.

Hyun-min reconstructs faces by examining skulls for the police. Attempting to quit as his daughter has undergone a heart transplant, Hyun-min is pulled back by rookie Sun-young for one more job; all while Hyun-min and his daughter begin to experience vivid, nightmarish visions. Face is a slow-burning creeper that gets under your skin.

The story in this film is creepy. From beginning to end, ghostly images are spread throughout; some are immensely creepy and unexpected, some are downright odd and unique. It uses elements of mystery as Hyun-min tries to locate the donor of his daughter's new heart, concurrently attempting to give a face to a recent murder victim. A few effective jump scares are also used, although not too often. The ending of this film is great, with a somewhat unexpected twist. The acting was great, and the music matched the tone of the film.

Overall, Face is a great horror film for those that love creepy, slow-burners. As of 3/17/13, this film is available on Netflix Streaming, a purchase is recommended for fans of Asian horror, a rental otherwise.

Face has some strong blood violence, and brief nudity.
