  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Thieves": Sunglasses, Suits, and Smokescreens

    2013/01/05,
    Film: "The Thieves" 도둑들 (Do-dook-deul) Director: Choi Dong-hoon Stars: Kim Yoon-seok, Kim Hye-soo, Lee Jeong-jae, Jeon Ji-hyeon, Simon Yam, Kim Hae-sook, Oh Dal-soo, and Kim Soo-hyeon-I Review Score: 3.5 / 5 Choi Dong-hoon's colossal hit "The Thieves" laid siege to the Korean box office last July, snatching 2 million admissions in the first weekend of its nine-week presence in the top ten. This record-smashing flick earned almost 13 million admissions during that time and its profitability will surely continue as the film is set to open in China on the 15th of this month on over 3,000 screens. Its rise to fame was relentless and it was honoured by the film industry as it was nominated for its excellence across most categories from Korea's top award ceremonies. "The Thieves", much to the distress of perhaps a few of its paying audience members, has been likened to Steven Soderbergh's 2001 film "Ocean's Eleven", but the film deviates enough from the ' heist ' formula to ward off most critics knee-jerk comparison. It's definitely one to hunt down or watch when you can but have we all been guilty of the Halo effect?,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "R2B: Return to Base": Come Rain, Come Shine?

    2012/12/15,
    Film: "R2B: Return to Base" (R2B: 리턴투베이스)   Director: Kim Dong-weon Stars: Rain, Sin Se-kyeong, Yoo Joon-sang, Kim Sung-soo, Lee Ha-na & Lee Jong-suk Review Score: 3 / 5 Also Try: "The Red Scarf", "71-Into the Fire" or "Taegukgi" Shin Sang-ok's 1964 film "The Red Muffler" was the first film to be released nationally in Japan and, prior to its release there, it was also shown at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival in Taipei. It was this acclaimed classic, this "expertly-filmed motion picture", that inspired Kim Dong-weon's 2012 action drama "R2B: Return to Base". The film was made with $10,000,000 and Time magazine's 2011 'most influential person' and Korean superstar Rain. However, it also had the unfortunate luck of being released alongside Choi Dong-hoon's record breaking "The Thieves", as well as the historical comedy "The Grand Heist" (which itself brought in close to 5 million admissions)-it lasted three weeks before it fell off the radar. "R2B: Return to Base" is, if anything, a great spectacle. There are incredibly gorgeous jet fighter scenes that seem to mirror the complexity and intensity of the stories told by some of the WWII veterans on the History channel; its star, Rain, is involved in a number of retro-style music montages as well as an angry/passionate topless locker-room brawl; and there is a love story in there somewhere that keeps you from feeling cheated. It's high-speed entertainment that catches the eye and quickens the pulse, but does little for the genre in Korea and even less for Rain's filmography,...More
