[HanCinema's Film Review] "Extreme Job"

2019/02/09 | Permalink

It becomes very clear very quickly in "Extreme Job" that the five cop team the movie is centered around is really not very competent. After making excuses to the suspect as to why they didn't make a better entrance, they immediately tip him off to possible escape routes and bungle further capture attempts. When Chief Go (played by Ryu Seung-ryong) finally comes up with an obvious plan, that goes wrong too and the case is "saved" by an embarrassing plot contrivance...More

Jeong-hye (played by Kim Yoon-jin) may be a killer, but she's also a loving mother who relishes every moment with her infant son in prison.

2019/02/02 | Permalink

In the rural southwestern part of Korea some old women do household chores day in and day out. They clean up their modest homes, shovel out the snow, and manage their farming plots. It is admittedly preposterous how old women over the age of eighty insist on continuing to farm when they don't really have to. But then, the poets of "The Poem, My Old Mother" are creatures of habit, and that's what their poetry is about. Chores, mostly...More
