  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Grand Heist": Catch it When you Can!

    2013/01/12,
    Film: "The Grand Heist"" 바람과 함께 사라지다 (Ba-lam-gwa Ham-gge Sa-ra-ji-da) Director: Kim Joo-ho Stars: Cha Tae-hyeon, Oh Ji-ho, Min Hyo-rin & Lee Chae-yeong Review Score: 4 / 5 Kim Joo-ho's first major feature "The Grand Heist" came into the charts last year when "The Thieves" had just hit its stride. Despite coming up against the likes Choi Dong-hoon's record-breaking hit, along with a few other money-makers both foreign and domestic, the film pulled together 4,909,937 admissions without ever being number one. That's a tally worthy of forth place in the list of highest grossing Korea films of 2012. A list led by "The Thieves" (12,983,182), followed by "Masquerade" (12,319,390), and that places Kim's heist flick almost two million behind "A Werewolf Boy" (6,654,390). The film is set during Korea's favoured Chosun period, and here the royal family have control over the production and distribution of ice. In Kim's telling ice becomes a highly sought-after commodity that represents the indulgence and decadence of the rich and powerful, as well as the hopes and needs of the weak and in need. Jo Myung-soo, a royal nobleman played by Nam Kyeong-eup, decides to put in motion plans that would give him exclusive rights and power of the ice trade. However, to do this he needs to take care of the resourceful and reckless Deok-moo (Cha Tae-hyeon), and his dutiful father, as well Dong-soo (Oh Ji-ho), a skilled and incorruptible public office who watches over the ice warehouse and its workers,...More

    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
