  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.07.26 ~ 2013.07.28

    2013/07/29,
    Despite the release of DreamWorks Animation's "Turbo" and the latest comic book film "The Wolverine", it was "Red 2" that managed to remain Korea's film of choice. Director Dean Parisot's "Red 2" claimed 666,048 admissions (25.9%) in its second weekend out, holding off a host of challengers to round out the month of July in good condition. In addition to these two Hollywood features getting stuck in, this week will also see two mammoth Korean films go head-to-head for the summer crowds and crown. Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" and Kim Byeong-woo's "The Terror Live" are both officially released on August 1st, with the latter having already scored a sneaky 122,762 (4.9%) admissions.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Unbowed": A Man, a Cause, and a Crossbow.

    2012/11/25,
    Film: "Unbowed" Director: Chung Ji-young Stars: Ahn Seong-gi, Park Won-sang, Nah Yeong-hee & Kim Ji-ho Review Score: 4 / 5 Also Try: "The Client", "Children..." or "The Crucible" The Korean justice system has long endured a painful portrait when it comes being represented on the big screen. Korean cinema has generally targeted public authority figures such as corrupt cops and public prosecutors, self-preserving judges and politicians, as well as other devious public authority figures. Chung Ji-young's "Unbowed" follows a determined civilian as he fights his way through Korea's judicial system; only to eventually pick up his crossbow, point an arrow and the nearest judge, and let loose. Ahn Seong-gi plays the accused, the stubborn, self-sacrificing and brilliant professor Kim Kyeong-ho. After diligently pointing out a critical error in his university's math exam, Seong-gi's trys to do the honourable thing in revealing the mistake to the students. However, his efforts are rejected and the faculty decides on keeping the error to themselves. Kim's impeccable character and unquestioning honour does not allow himself to accept their decision, and his defiance ultimately results in legal action against him,...More
