Country: South Korea
CanolaOct 7, 2019
Sentimental, yet never schmaltzy, inspiring though certainly not preachy, ‘Canola’ strikes a beautiful balance between its elements that makes for a hugely admirable whole.
CartMay 25, 2015
‘Cart’ is an admirable and very sympathetic version of a pro-longed event that may have happened in Korea, but has echoes through the developed world where profit is evermore as valued as simple human decency.
CarterSep 13, 2022
Joo Won and the stunt people do give it their all and there are some creative sequences on show, but it doesn’t quite come together into a satisfying whole.
ChampionFeb 28, 2015
An entertaining if hardly revolutionary piece of sports bio, ‘Champion’ benefits from some fine photography, a commitment to do the subject proud and some excellent performances from the cast.
ChawFeb 28, 2015
This slick Korean production offers a fair amount of rampaging animal attacks, goofy horror fun and dashings of gore to make it a decent monster movie.
Children…Feb 28, 2015
Lee Kyoo-Man provides us with a well shot, gently paced ‘what if?’ that might not be gripping, but is much more than just a distraction.
Closer To HeavenMar 1, 2015
Director Park Jin Pyo once again handles a harrowing subject with sensitivity and respect for his characters.
Crying FistMar 4, 2015
‘Crying Fist’ feels fresh and exciting thanks to the considerable skills of its director, the novel use of two storylines happening at the same time and the excellent performances of the leads.
Cyrano AgencyMar 4, 2015
‘Cyrano Agency’ is a clever distillation of all of those sweeping moments that Korean love stories are known for.
D-WarMar 4, 2015
I’m normally a sucker for a cheesy monster movie but ‘D-War’ fails to produce the goods on just about every level.
Death BellMar 6, 2015
‘Death Bell’ is certainly not the best the genre has to offer, but it is a harmless little frightfest that has a few hints of ‘Saw’ and ‘Battle Royale’ thrown in.
Deliver Us From EvilApr 30, 2021
Despite using well worn action tropes as a framework to pit two men against one another, the film spins a refreshing take on these tropes to constantly surprise the viewer and ultimately deliver an emotional wallop.
