Moby Dick (모비딕)

모비딕 (Mo-bi-dik)

Directed by Park In-je (박인제)

Screenplay by ,


112min | Release date in South Korea :

The title of this film may bring to mind Herman Melville’s classic novel, but “Moby Dick” is actually a chilling voyage through Korean history with enough conspiracy theories to make even the most nationalistic viewer question their government.
When a mysterious explosion destroys the fictional Balam Bridge on the outskirts of Seoul, veteran journalist Lee Bang-woo (Hwang Jeong-min) picks up the story and runs with it.
Around the same time, he gets a visit from his old friend Yoon-hyuk (Jin Goo), who offers some highly classified information on the case - that the explosion was no accident and that the government caused it.
Thinking the case is no ordinary job, Lee calls on his fellow reporters Sohn Jin-ki (Kim Sang-ho) and Seong Hyo-kwan (Kim Min-hee) to investigate. But when their investigation uncovers conspiracy after conspiracy, the group begins to question the government and they begin to get threats that could endanger their investigation and their lives.
With a highly esteemed cast of prestigious Korea actors, including Hwang, who is famous for his role in the 2009 film “Private Eye,” this movie is bound to raise some eyebrows and could be the harbinger of Korean films to come.

Korea, and he would not be very far from the truth. However, a few elements in the film make it stand out from the majority of similar productions,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Moby Dick": It's a Long Way Down From the Shoulders' of Giants.

    Park In-je's conspiracy flick "Moby Dick" had little to say at the box office when it was released early June. Its promise of thrilling action and a gripping plot seem to have been confined to the film's enticing trailer and promotional posturing. With an undecided visual aesthetic and damp directorial story telling, your "Moby Dick" experience should be limited to its theatrical trailer or Herman Melville's classic novel,...More
