"The Truth Beneath" is a film that talks about violent revenge.
When a politician's daughter is losing, the scandal threatens to change his ambitions for a major election. We soon find that mother-daughter relationships are not so great when Min-jin resides in who is doing his homework.
Instead of starting an investigation, Jong-chan is more concerned about the election victory. He is left to his mother, Yeon-cheong, to look for its daughter. read more Things take a tragic turn when your daughter's body is discovered dumped in forests ...
After this point the film provides a certain interactivity, as the objective of distinguishing the truth from the lies, already in the flashbacks, we see how the relationship between Min-jin and Mi-OK was in the past and present. What was interesting was how their relationship was affected by the corrupt adult world. He also showed that for all his recent modern developments there are still many traces of the Chung-hee dictatorship in present-day Korea. For those looking for a good weekend movie, "The Truth Beneath" is a suggestion.

"Suddenly At Midnight" is featured in cinematography, although the film is rich in this subject, at the time there was superior care to leave environments as close to natural as possible, an elaborate setting with smoother camera movement and a transition of scenes soft. The story of "Suddenly At Midnight" can be said that it comes from the base of the classic suspensions, it is sustainable by a good scientific thesis, it read more has its falls in course but it keeps well on average, the cast is great, only problem is the soundtrack , Very inefficient for a film so rich in cinematic details.

Watched this for Kim Min Jong
was excited to c Kim Min Jong and Im Won Hee work together.
had to say their acting was superb and min jong oppas every little movement was very detailed which shows how immersed into his character he was.

The plot/story was missing a lot of things, tho they have a great cast and acting skills it does not up for the missing things. some parts read more just felt empty and boring...
but their acting balances out the emptiness, there may be a few actors which appear in scenes for a few seconds to a minute and their acting may bring down the movie but the main cast does save the film by their acting.

i would not rewatch it if i was not a huge fan of any of the lead
(im a HUGE fan of Kim Min Jong so it would be worth it to rewatch)

It's not "HAHA" comedy nor is big drama. Simple movie about simple japanese family.
As non Japanese I found it interesting to see how relations between married couples in Japan looks like with all their ups and downs.

Been waiting to watch this movie for a long time now, as I'm a big Kento fan. And I wasn't disappointed. I liked that it was refreshing unique, though there were some parts that were just too shoujo. But, at least, they kept it clean and they didn't add that manga vibe and overreaction that usually movies like this one have. The ending was okay and heart breaking, so be aware!! The read more story in general was cute and sweet, with not too many twists and a so so mystery. The performances were good. So, 7 out of 10.

"Lingerie Man" has a reasonable dose of comedy, the story is really bad, tried to make the cliché of comedy with sexuality and seduction, has technical defects and was produced with limited budget. A film that does not add and does not excite in turn is somewhat fun, as being the last option of a huge list. It has no positive and negative highlights the film as a whole.

"Kanon" has a very beautiful and melodramatic narrative, the story is very well told, as usual the Japanese are very detailed and do not miss anything, we do not see loose ends nor a bad ending. Cinematography is beautiful, rich in detail and with impeccable camera positioning. The soundtrack, although scarce, is composed mainly of classical music but very well harmonized with the scene sequences, the fade in out is also synchronized, read more the cast is wonderful, very participatory and expressive. "Kanon" is a dramatic harmonic family movie that deserves to be watched.

"Hentaida" is a rather quirky film not bizarre or gloomy, it's a very interesting film because the narrative is simple but provides an interesting insight into the facts from the perspective of two individuals who have somewhat bizarre fetishes. The cast is very well, acting solid and fluid, since the cinematography is the soundtrack are the positive highlights of the long. For those who like the different "Hentaida" is a good option.

"Swapping: My Friend's Wife" is below expectations, a rickety story limited to four pairs of badly framed actors in a bad cinematography scene, decadent scenes in detail and a narrative that gets to sleep, even the spicy scenes are tedious .

Although the film is from a virus called a zombie, it looks more like a movie of disfigured vampires. The story is good, it has originality, the narrative flows well on the screen, the cast in conjunction with the soundtrack and cinematographies are well-suited for a saturated theme film. Perhaps the downside is the lack of a decent budget, because CGIs and makeup are horrible.

"Three Sexy Meals" is an inexpensive adult comedy that tries to be funny, cast and soundtrack are good, the narrative leaves to be desired because it suffers from inconstancy, the story is horrible very poorly presented, a script totally disposable, maybe a Little more emotion and action would make a movie smoother and not so forced.

"Disappearance: Missing Wife" is a Basque-style thriller, where there is no surprise throughout the story, the narrative is weak and erased, the acting is good but inside the thriller there must be more than an acting, there must be an interesting story that Hold the attention of the spectator something that is not seen at any time.

An ex-special operations soldier finds himself coming out of retirement to fight against a relentless and cruel mercenary group in a dangerous wartorn country. He will have to utilize all the skills he has acquired from his years working as an elite soldier to accomplish his mission of rescuing innocents who have nowhere to go. Explosive and exciting set pieces ensue.

Does that sound familiar?

If so, that's probably because "Wolf Warrior read more 2" is probably the most American movie to come out of China.

Fans of American action flicks won't see any surprises here. Despite its Chinese-centric story and cast, the movie is nearly identical to the blockbuster action movies that pop up on a regular basis. "Wolf Warriors 2" is basically what happens when you replace all the jingoistic pro-American messages in a Hollywood blockbuster with pro-Chinese ones.

The story is paper thin. Basically, an African rebel group is attempting to secure control of the country, and it is up to the dangerous and charismatic ex-Wolf Warriors operative Wu Jing to save the day. That's really all there is to it. The story is really the background to a series of over-the-top, but fantastic set pieces. Seeing how far Chinese cinema has gone is quite breathtaking, as I am not afraid to say that this movie is close to reaching the heights that similar Hollywood films like "The Expendables" and "Rambo" have.

The fight scenes are among the best I've seen. The excellently choreographed sequences will have viewers on the edge of their seats. The movie isn't afraid to show more brutal moments as well. As an action movie, "Wolf Warriors 2" does an excellent job of keeping the pacing going. There is hardly any time to think before you are thrust into another action scene. It is an exciting ride indeed.

Sometimes there is extremely obvious CGI, but for the most part, the special effects are absolutely great.

The actors do their jobs well and are rather likable. And while their roles are more or less standard action roles, I enjoyed watching them nonetheless.

The music does its job, but is ultimately forgettable.

All and all, I enjoyed this movie. If you're looking for a movie to watch that is pure action, this one is the one for you. If a deep and moving story is your thing, then you might want to look elsewhere.

Even though I don't like Yamazaki...( yes I said that;) This time I was cheering for him.
It's hard to say much about this story without any spoilers... So let's say it's worth 2 hours of your life ^^
Especially Harunas smile... ;I Because of her this movie is rated "K" for KAWAIINES
Altough this ending... oh well you will see by yourself ;p
