Way to strip a plot of any suspense by revealing everything from the start.

Welcome to the world of one of the worst storytelling examples in the history of horror. Why did they decide to show so much of the background and context of the supernatural events, when the unknown is the vital and most important part of any horror movie?

My brain hurts so much. I feel like the only people who put any effort into this project were the actors, and I honestly feel bad for them.

The level of ridiculousness? Unimaginable. The pacing? PAINFUL. The remake of the game takes about 4 hours of gameplay to complete. They tried to fit that into a 1 hour and 30 minutes movie, and they failed. Since there was so much to show and tell, there was no breathing moment, no time to build the atmosphere and the suspense - I was bombarded with information, action and poor CGI.

There were so many laughable moments. They literally introduced, explained with dialogue and flashbacks, and concluded a whole new past plotline 7 minutes before the movie ended. I think this tells you a lot about the writing and pacing of The Labyrinth.

Do yourself a favor and just watch a whole playthrough on youtube or play the game yourself - the story makes more sense, there is a better suspense and even the graphics for the phone remake are better than any CGI this movie gave us.

Should've been a series instead.

Honestly, this wasn't that bad but it definitely left me wanting more. I believe that if this was made into an actual series instead of a movie, it'd make more sense. It was an interesting story but the whole thing felt rushed. Tbh, I was never really a fan of movies where everything happened in one day. But it shouldn't be completely written off bc, like I said, the story could've had so much more depth if it was played out over multiple episodes of a show. I don't really recommend this movie because a lot of things are just never explained. But if you're bored, get it a shot.

Also, there wasn't really any music that stood out so that's why the score is 1.

Really average movie but I did like it overall. It started off well then the middle kind of got stupid but it redeemed itself in the last half. I really liked Hee Min the ML and So Young the FL even though techically I would say there isn't a FL in the traditional sense. I really liked the whole cast. The actress playing the distraught/grieving mother was really good too!

My main negative critique is that the CGI is BAD. There is a scene where a character is throwing up blood and it was terrible. Most of the CGI is not good but I didn't mind that but you would think in 2021 it would be better than this and that particular scene was ridiculous!

Another reviewer said it would be better as a series and I agree with that.

Esta película me ha pasado lo mismo que con Aloners. Tenía muchas ganas de verla porque la sinopsis me atrapó, sin embargo, no fue totalmente satisfactoria verla, no igual que Aloners, pero si me defraudó un poquito.
La verdad es que esperaba ver una película de miedo/terror en un colegio donde incluso utilizaban las religiones de Corea para añadirle la parte espiritual y de fantasía. Sin embargo, la película no da miedo en absoluto, al menos a mi no me dio miedo y el uso de las religiones tampoco se expone de manera clara. La historia me resultó aburrida y lenta en muchas ocasiones (a pesar de que pasan cosas desde el principio) y no muy clara porque considero que han dejado muchos cabos sueltos y sin explicar.
La actuación de muchos de los personajes tampoco me pareció muy buena y no ayudaba a integrarse en la historia, al igual que tampoco me creí el amor a primera vista del protagonista.
La verdad es que cuando descubrí esta película, la sinopsis me llamó mucho la atención y tenía muchas ganas de verla, pero ha sido un fracaso y una desilusión total. Sin embargo, eso no quiere decir que no te pueda gustar, por lo tanto te animo si quieres darle una oportunidad.
