First off, I admittedly watched this movie because I am a huuuge Dongwan and Shinhwa fan (SHINCHANG FOREVER) so I watched it without much expectations.

Boy, I was so wrong! It basically tells the story about Korea being hit by a health epidemic, with thousands dying for no reason. The scenes are acted out so realistically, it makes one actually feel nervous watching it because of the fear that it may come read more true. The acting was superb - I cannot find fault in any of the cast and the plot was tightly clinched in all the right places without it being too complicated (like most epidemic movies). I gave the music a 7 because I wasn't really paying attention to it (oops!)

Special mention goes out to Kim Myungmin for his portrayal of Jae Hyuk - my heart ached with him from start to end. He really is a good actor.

(and Dongwan just looks lovely here *____* one more reason to watch it!)

This movie had me in suspense from beginning untill the end. They really catched my attention, and kept it right into that movie! The story is great and well executed! It is logical and very understandable! Also they will make you feel angry at times, feel in despair and feel bad for certain characters!
I was amazed how they acted! They were really good and I can't wait for more of some read more of these actors!
They picked the right music, sometimes it wasn't my taste but that is personal.
I would rewatch this movie and I would recommend it to anyone who like some action, a good story and some suspense!

Both the plots revolve around a disaster and the need for them to survive for their lives. Good thrillers.

So...I didn't particularly like Deranged, but if you liked Deranged, you will definitely love The Flu; I can't guarantee the reverse if you liked The Flu, you'll like Deranged.

Both films revolve around a spreading epidemic and chaos. So in terms of those aspects I think it's safe to say someone who liked this movie will like The Flu.

The problem is that Deranged was too slow paced, constant unnecessary chaos scenes that added nothing to the plot, and a boring main "hero" and just a forgettable movie.

On the other hand I watched The Flu first and I LOVED it. So I was super excited for Deranged, but it just was a poorer version of The Flu in my opinion.

If you liked Deranged watch The Flu. If you hated Deranged, watch The Flu.

    Another Korean movie about pandemic very good, the explanations about the disease are very realistic. No effort was made to lend credibility to the conspiracy it involves.
