Water is one of the most powerful element on the planet. When it's peaceful and calm, it can be a joy to swim in and have fun with family and friends; when it's pissed off, you best better get the heck out of the way because it'll be your last breath of air you'll ever take. This is truly an entertaining film depicting the awesomeness power and nature of water. In many read more ways, this movie reminds me of the American film 2012 when the tsunami was coming towards land in China and India...totally scary!!! If you ever find yourself in such a situation, you either pray like hell or run like hell!!!

One thing I want to say is that we humans are great architects...we can create many wonderful and big skyscrapers...ultimately creating a huge city of wires, bricks, cement, glass, plastic and metal (also known as concrete jungle)...all the more easy to trap us in our own devices and creation when all hell breaks loose...it's quite ironic, I think...

What I like best about this film is that it shows the very nature of man...just how prideful, hateful, selfish, loving, and caring we can be when disaster strikes...what I dislike most is that when good people try to take steps to warn the masses to save lives, there's always these hateful people who get in the way, and on top of that no body listens...but when hell breaks loose, then everyone panics and kill each just to save their own skin...and afterward, of course comes the finger pointing (a.k.a putting the blame on someone)...if there's one thing we humans don't ever learn...it is from our past mistakes.

On the level of emotion, this film have its moment of great sadness, fear and comedy...it'll make you feel sad, scared, happy and laugh at different points in this movie...which I think is a good portrait of how people react in real life situation and circumstances of this magnitude.

    Every movie with Ha Ji Won is worth watching it. And this is a very best example of a great movie.

    It is a good movie. If you want to see the real thing you should skip the first 70 minutes. There were a lot of things that made me think that the movie is so unorganized. Some things were sloppy and messy. But overall it's good to go.

    Wow, I'm speechless, stunned after watching this one, a 10 for sure, so much better than any American natural disaster movie I've ever seen. Really gave you a feel as to what happened and what the survivors went through both from the Indian Ocean and the Japanese Tsunami's, I'm numb from watching it, stunned...

    Am I the only one who didn't look at the cast list before watching this movie, and who completely fell for Lee Min Ki's character (without even knowing that it was LMK)? X'D. This is seriously one amazing movie! <3
