Duelist [2005] (Korean-English sub) [xvid format]

Oh, where to even begin with this ... Lee Myung-Se's period martial arts piece The Duelist was one of my most anticipated films of this year's festival. The advance trailers and released stills were simply jaw-droppingly beautiful and I was fascinated by the director's comments about the importance of rhythm in his film. So why am I feeling so intensely unsatisfied? On one level The Duelist is exactly what you would expect. It is gorgeously shot, a stunning film to look at, and contains a fistful of stunning set pieces. It is also, however, a surprising genre mash-up but Lee was unable to find the balance that would see the different aspects pull together cooperatively and instead ended up with a confused muddle of a film that doesn't know quite what it wants to be, its different impulses pulling it wildly in all directions.

A tale of political intrigue The Duelist is told from the perspective of a group of undercover police officers in historical Korea. Ahn Sung-Ki - one of Korea's most dependable actors who many on these shores will recognize from his part in the stellar Musa: The Warrior - is the wise senior leader of the group, Ha Jiwan the headstrong and firey tempered Detective Namsoo. When a mysterious masked man scatters bags of counterfeit coins into a crowd at a town fair - nearly triggering a riot - the young female detective sets off in pursuit, engages him in combat and catches a brief glimpse of his true face. Thus begins a cat and mouse game that plays out on several levels. Who would have the means to produce so many counterfeit coins? What do they stand to gain by destabilizing the country's economy? Who was the mysterious masked man and why does Namsoo find him so compelling?

First, the good. The cinematography is simply stunning. This is a gorgeously staged and shot film. The sets are simply enormous and finely detailed and are captured in all their glory. The colors are brilliant but Lee reserves his true love for the shadows, the interplay of light and dark. He is obviosuly aware that what you don't see can be every bit as impressive as what you do and he uses the shadows to his very great advantage.

Lee's approach to the martial arts sequences is also startlingly original. Many often talk of violence as being a dance, but Lee goes a step further and makes that literally the case, setting his wildly kinetic fight sequences to pronounced dance rhythms and employing them as a sort of courtship or mating ritual between Namsoo and her un-named opponent. He makes explicit the implicit link between sex and violence in a new and striking way. Also worth noting here is the magnetic performance of the male lead, Gang Donwon, who manages to convery a great deal with very little effort.

Lee is also admirably willing to experiemtn with camera techniques, often shooting reaction shots as a progressive series of stills and employing a fistful of other techniques to capture his scenes and characters. This is, quite honestly, a film unlike any other you may have seen.

And now, the not so good. First, the genre issues. Cross genre films are very likely the hardest to pull off successfully as each genre has its own conventions and requirements that must be honored without detracting from the others, and Lee simply misses that all important balance. We're not talking about a drama with some quality comic moments here, we're talking about a film that is one moment a high minded art film and the next a Keystone Kops styled bumbling slapstick, right down to the ramped up camera speeds. There is the blacksmith always telling his luridly sexual stories, the admittedly fun spy themed introduction of the undercover unit complete with Bond style musical accompaniment, and the goofy Saturday morning serial nature of much of the early action. The elements simply never gel and while the comedy quotient decreases dramatically as the film goes on you quickly realize that Lee spent so much time on the first act goofing around that he failed to properly establish any of his lead characters. There's simply nobody to carry you through the experience with Ahn grossly underused and Ha playing everything in the broadest possible terms, either screaming or slouching or crying or giving off a very unconvincing swagger. There's no subtlety to her work, which makes her budding forbidden romance remarkably unconvincing.

The Duelist has at least five different films struggling to emerge. It is loaded with eye candy and has some spectacular set pieces but on the whole that struggle proves its undoing. Promising, but ultimately unfulfilling.

My Tutor Friend (Korean - English sub)

Sophomore university student Su-weon (Kim Ha-neul) has been struggling with financing her education since she began her degree program, which has forced her to become a part-time tutor. In need of a new student since she was forced to quit her previous assignment with a group of sexually aggressive young men, Su-weon, with her mother's assistance, finds a new job working with the son of a rich acquaintance. The young man, Ji-hun (Gweon Sang-woo), has spent the last three years studying in the United States and -- due to his ambivalence toward his studies -- he has failed to graduate as a senior in each of those three years. For his part, Ji-hun would rather not have anything to do with his new tutor and attempts to scare her away. Meanwhile, Su-weon is just as determined to accomplish her objectives with Ji-hun, and as the two wage psychological warfare with one another, an unexpected friendship and romance begins to bloom. My Tutor Friend was a smash hit in South Korea upon its release in early 2003, topping the box-office charts for five weeks after its debut. ~ Ryan Shriver, All Movie Guide.

The Myth (English Subtitle)

Year: 2005
Director: Stanley Tong Kwai-Lai
Producer: Willie Chan, Solon So, Barbie Tung
Writer: Stanley Tong Kwai-Lai, Wang Hui-Ling, Li Hai-Shu
Action: Stanley Tong Kwai-Lai, Jackie Chan, Richard Hung
Cast: Jackie Chan, Kim Hee-Sun, Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Mallika Sherawat, Yu Rong-Guang, Choi Min-Soo, Patrick Tam Yiu-Man, Ken Wong Hap-Hei, Sun Zhou, Shao Bing, Jin Song, Ken Lo Wai-Kwong, Hayama Go

The year was BC221 when Qin Shihuang - the first Emperor of China - started to build a royal tomb for himself despite his infatuation with immortality. Through the prodigious endeavors of more than 700,000 forced laborers, the mausoleum was completed 37 years later. Legend has it that, to ensure utmost secrecy, all those who worked on the project were buried alive with the dead Emperor. There were no survivors.

Over the next two thousand years, historians, tomb-raiders, and happy- go-lucky adventurers alike have been homing in on the royal treasure buried within. However, no one has ever succeeded in locating the entrance to the mausoleum. Thus the bulk of the First Emperor’s treasure, including his much-fabled elixir of youth, remains intact.

Until now, that is….intrepid archeologist Jack (JACKIE CHAN) and ambitious scientist William (TONY LEUNG KA FAI) set out on an adventure that would lead them to the greatest discovery in Chinese history. Their journey starts at Dasar, India, where they stumble upon an ancient sword from the Qin Dynasty and a magical gemstone that appears to be able to defy the force of gravity. The booty not only leads them to the mythical mausoleum, but it also connects Jack to his dark past life. Through strange and provocative dreams, Jack sees himself reincarnated as Meng Yi, a general who fell for the First Emperor’s beautiful consort Ok Soo (KIM HEE SEON) some two thousand years ago. As Meng Yi commands his troops in an increasingly desperate war against rebels, he also has to battle his own inner desires in choosing between eternal love and loyalty. Returning to the present day, the final secret of the First Emperor is about to be revealed. The two adventurers successfully enter the Heavenly Palace, a fortress loaded with death traps and unspeakable evils, as Jack comes face-to-face with his past. Or is it really?

Director Stanley Tong aims to create an extravaganza combining Chinese mythology with a breath-taking modern-day action adventure in The Myth. Co-written with Wang Hui-ling (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), The Myth marks Stanley’s fourth collaboration with Jackie Chan, following global blockbusters Super Cop, Rumble in the Bronx and First Strike. Jackie Chan is joined here in a stellar international cast by acclaimed actor Tony Leung Ka-Fai (The Lover), top actress Kim Hee Seon (Bichunmoo and A Letter from Mars) and action star Choi Min Soo - both from Korea, as well as sensational Indian beauty Mallika Sherawat.

The legend of seven cutter (2005) (Korea)

IPB ImageIPB Image

JUNG Han-soo, a name that brings fear to everyone in his new highschool when he gets transferred. JUNG Han-soo also known as seven cutter has a evil and violent history, and everyone is affraid to get in his way. Han-Soo on the other hand just happens to be a ordinary boy who coincidentally has the same name. Now he must prove that he is a nice guy, and that will be a hard task.

A nice comedy with Ahn Jae-mo (Nowhere to hide & Haan) as Jung Han-Soo. I have to admit this is really one of his better roles.

The movie starts out great, funny scenes and good storyline until Han-Soo meets his crush. Then the comedy lacks on all sides and it turns into a sort of love story. I say sort of love story, because the romance just is not there, only drama.

But nothing to really worry about, the movie is good nontheless, with a nice cast and a goofy storyline.

A Millionaire's First Love - A must see movie

My rating: Five Star

From Kim Tae Kyun, the director of Volcano High comes an amusing fish-out-of-water romance starring Hyun Bin, from My Lovely Sam Soon and Lee Yeon Hee.

Jae Kyung is a spoilt rich kid and a bit of a slacker. He is in his
senior year at high school, but rarely bothers showing up to class.
It's not that he has no desire for success, it's just that he knows he
doesn't have to study hard in order to get it. On his nineteenth
birthday he will become a millionaire, thanks to his late grandfather's
inheritance. But, the day before the big pay out, Jae Kyung's family
lawyer discovers a hidden clause in the contract. Jae Kyung can only
inherit his fortune if he graduates from Boram High School. Where?

Boram is in a remote part of the Korean countryside, miles
from Jae Kyung's cushy little existence. So the pampered city boy has
no choice but to up-sticks and move to this small rural community -
where his credit card isn't accepted anywhere and he can't even drive
his sports car! But, in amongst all the country bumpkins and backward
yokels, Jae Kyung meets Eun Hwan (Lee Yeon Hee) in whom he sees
something different, something special, something which might possibly
inspire him to change his selfish, arrogant ways and become a better

My Boss, My Hero

the fall of 2001, South Korean moviegoers were inundated with a series
of successful action comedies, many of which took the old standard of
Asian cinema, the gangster, and dropped them into absurd 'fish out of
water' situations, invoking hilarity out of what are usually mundane
cinematic set pieces. "My Wife is a Gangster (Jopog manura)"
featured a female crime boss getting in touch with her feminine side in
order to find a husband. In "Hi, Dharma", a bunch of gangsters on the
lam find refuge in a Buddhist monastery, while Kim Sang-jin's follow-up
to "Attack the Gas Station (Chuyuso supgyuk sa keun)", "Kick the Moon (Shinlaui dalbam)", has a big boss and a schoolteacher vying for the affections of the same woman. In the case of the recent multi-region DVD import "My Boss, My Hero (Doosaboo ilchae)", a mob boss is sent back to high school, a place that ends up being far worse than life on the mean streets.

Kye Doo-sik (Jung Joon-ho, who is usually associated with more serious action fare, such as "The Siren" and "Last Witness")
is the second-in-command of a mob gang. Though he has successfully
expanded his boss' territory by defeating a rival gang, he is prevented
from moving up in the criminal organization due to his lack of a high
school diploma. It seems that all his contemporaries have at least a
high school education, with some having even attended college, and
Doo-sik's lack of formal education is downright embarrassing-- he is
even oblivious to the existence of the Internet and has yet to discover
what an e-mail address is. Thus, Doo-sik is given an ultimatum by his
boss (Kim Sang-joong)-- he must go back to school and graduate if he
wants to continue as a gangster.

With the help of his underlings Kim Sang-do (Jeong Wung-in of "The Foul King") and the dim-witted Dae Ka-ri (Jeong Un-taek of "Friend"),
Doo-sik poses as a 20-year old student and enrolls at a privately run
high school. Unfortunately, he quickly learns that high school life is
far rougher and tougher than the life he has left behind. In addition
to being beaten by his teachers and robbed by the school bully, Doo-sik
quickly learns that the school is rife with corruption. The parents of
rich students routinely bribe the school's principal, who in turn
coerces the teaching staff into awarding good marks. The principal is
also behind the school's problem in retaining female teachers, as he
routinely sexual harasses them. Unfortunately, there is little anyone
can do about this situation, as the principal is backed up by a local
mob. Doo-sik also learns that the lure of getting into a top college is
so strong that some students are willing to do anything, as with the
case of Yoon-joo (Oh Seung-eun), a female student he befriends, who
prostitutes herself after school to pay for her education. Fed up with
the corruption and injustice all around him, Doo-sik decides to take
matters into his own hands, which leads to an all-out battle on school

The first half of "My Boss, My Hero" is clearly a 'fish
out of water' comedy, as Doo-sik is knocked to the bottom of the food
chain at his new school. Coupled with the ineptness of Ka-ri, who
consistently gives Doo-sik bad advice about how to fit into his new
environment, there are more than a few well-earned chuckles to be had.
In addition, the film makes some pointed comments about the brutality
of the Korean education system, a sometimes-dangerous place where
corporal punishment still exists and the pressure to perform leads to
all sorts of abuses and criminal behavior (apparently, the story is
loosely based on an actual incident at a Seoul high school).
Unfortunately, there are a number of instances where the script strains
credibility, such as Doo-sik being bullied by the local toughs,
particularly since he easily stands a head taller than them and is
almost a decade their senior. In addition, this first half also suffers
from some choppy editing, which makes a number of the scene transitions
particularly jarring.

However, the film really takes off in the
second half, where the story sheds the laughs and presents Doo-sik's
heart-wrenching struggle to help the teachers and students overthrow
the school's corrupt administration. As the principal's underworld
connections arrive to break up a peaceful protest, director Yun Je-gyun
pulls no punches in showing the brutality that ensues. In addition, the
film's second half also features a beautifully rendered fight sequence
that takes place in a torrential downpour, reminiscent of the opening
action sequence in "My Wife is a Gangster".
