Director: Bong Joon Ho
Released: November 2019
Lots of hype behind this movie bother from viewers and critics so I figured it had to be decent. In general, I'm a big fan of asian thrillers and horror so I had a bit of theory as to how this film would play out going into my watching.
A cast of unlikables that we find likable - check.
Slow burn where the pace of the move changes about 50% and 80% of the way through - check.
Sudden twist with an extremely unlikely support character - check.
Non-concise closing - check.
I can see how many people would be in love with the film. I thought it was a decent story, shot and acted well. I was hoping for a little more off the rails times but for most people, what they did is enough.
Verdict: Worth a watch even if just to follow the journey.
