So basically the movie is about humanity, just like the main character didn’t lost his humanity during that situation he fall in, he still help this other girl even narrowing his chance of surviving this hell, and just like how the government authority took advantage of the situation even though they are partly to be blamed as to the fall of the tunnel. The movie will also give you this question “will read more you choose the life of one person above the lives of other people affected by the situation?".

This is an intensely claustrophobic experience and I am not even a claustrophobic person. They really capture the emotion during the situation, the camera angle, the sounds from falling rocks and the dust particles are what makes it possible. I like the way they insert comedic moments in the situation, it’s hilarious but makes sense, they played it brilliantly. Aside from suspense, the drama is pretty heavy here as the dilemma falls to the people involved like the rescue leader and his wife, you will feel sympathy for them.

The CGI is brilliant, realistic, Hollywood level. The soundtrack will creep you as it brilliantly conveys that situation, lack of sound at some parts that suddenly broken by falling rocks or footsteps is brilliant, it added up to the horror element in the movie. Cinematography is insanely beautiful just made the acting better at some part.

Solid performance from the cast like Ha Jeong Woo, Oh Dal Su and Donna bae they are exceptionally brilliant but we need to commend Nam Ji Hyun for what she has done here because it’s her character that added up layer to the movie and she nailed it brilliantly.

That joke at the end is so good that it adds .5 to my score.

Tunnel, as the name says is a survivor-thriller about a man caught inside a collapsed tunnel. The casting has been done so perfect and particularly the leads Ha Jung Woo and Oh Dal Su nails it! Every detail portrayed in the movie is meticulous. I personally didn't feel any negatives from the movie expect a tad bit of feeling that it could have been delivered even more seriously with in-depth details. Easily read more one of the best in the recent times!

    ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED. The acting is really good. It's an intense movie and it manages to keep you interested and focused on the plot for 2 hours which is a big acomplishment of course.

    I'm coming back from a movie festival in Belgium and this movie was screened! I really didn't expect the movie to turn out the way is was, but I'm so glad it was! I loved everything from the beginning to the end. And Ha Jeong Woo did an amazing work to portray the lead.

    waahhh the subs gave me a headache......kissasian is down. None of the other sites have a decent sub. Who is subbing all these movies (is/was the same with Veteran, Big Match, Alice: boy from wonderland, and much more). I appreciate the subbing, but they need to reread/rewatch them to someone who al least can make smooth/better sentences. Like posting it here and ask people to help them with fixing these small problems. I wouldn't mind helping them.

      They don't sub, they just rip from other sites like DramaFever/Viki or fansubs they find. If you can't find a decent sub on an Asian drama site you may be able one on a free movie site.

    *That feel after a brilliant movie* 8/10
    Anyway.. that Ha Jeong Woo is really really really really a FAB actor, He turned from that psycho killer who made me cry of fear in The Chaser into this corruption victim who struggled to survive T^T I'm so so in love .. Thanks for being awesome and Thanks for such movies !
