Complete Review + Extra Features Breakdown here

FILM: 8

Excerpt from the Review: "Eom Jung-Hwa's performance is excellent, transforming herself once again in a vortex of emotion, from the scary intensity of her killing ways, to the playful irreverence of her games against her 'predators', to the almost disarming display of emotions in the film's climax. But personally the real winner is Moon Sung-Geun's performance. I felt Moon fell into a sort of mannerism with his role in Hong Sang-Soo's 오!수정 (Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors), playing similarly cynical and cold characters in two consecutive films, but his Sung-Ho here feels like a huge u-turn in his career. His mix of melancholic nothingness and his gradual opening in the second half marks one of the most hard hitting performances of the year, and is his best work since Lee Chang-Dong's 초록 물고기 (Green Fish). But then again if the film works the way it does, it's all thanks to Bang Eun-Jin. Debuting with a film like this, set up like a big project with a burdensome cast, marketed by a major in a way which partially betrayed the intentions of the film, wasn't going to be easy for anyone, let alone a female director in Chungmuro. But she did it, scoring decently with the public (almost a Million tickets), and impressively well with the majority of Korean critics. Princess Aurora is a very accomplished debut, something which allowed Bang to enter Chungmuro with a bang, and makes me crave for more. It took many years to get here, but we have a potentially impressive directing career in the making. Director Bang Eun-Jin. I like the sound of that already..."

well, twitch liked it, I didn't! My mini-review:

Despite starring the lovely and talented Uhm JungHwa and possessing very slick production values, Princess Aurora is a strictly by-the-book serial killer tale. UJW makes a beautifully scary killer, and the methods she employs to off her victims are quite gruesome at times. Unfortunately we've seen it all before... or, well, a LOT of it before. In fact, other than to say she kills a bunch of people and the police try to figure out who and why, there's not much else to tell!

The problem I have with the film is that it's very stylish, contains oodles of violence, but all of it is basically meaningless because they never give us any reasons to care for the characters. Obviously Uhm is on her killing spree due to some dark, psychological trauma. Characters of this ilk are so common, you basically spend most of the movie wondering if her motivation will be half as creative as her techniques. Unfortunately, not so much. Then there's her cop ex-husband who's studying to become a pastor; obviously he has issues as well!

The last 10 minutes ALMOST save the film, as there's one of those unexpected twists that are so popular with script-writers these days. However, it's a case of too little too late. By that point I'd fast-forwarded through so much bloodshed almost nothing would entice me.

Well, except for the fact Kwon O-joong from "Damo" played one of the cops.

NOT recommended!
