Hopefully this movie doesn't effect your perception towards Korean films


It's hard to give a movie a 10 out of 10. And it's even harder to give
a movie a 1 out of 10. Why? Because even the worst of films have a tiny
little element to praise. 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' is
something I consider to be one of the worst films I've ever seen (and
I've watched Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus!)…yet that movie had good
CGI (too much of it but still good in terms of visuals).

But here comes 'Sector 7', the first 3-D movie to be released in South
Korea. I am Korean and I assure you that Americans are more likely to
like this movie…because English subtitles will definitely hide the
terrible dialogue in this movie.

"Monster….monster…." says Ha Ji Won when she first sees this glob
of CG. Then Sung Kee Ahn grabs a gun. First of all there would be no
guns on an oil mine in Korea and second of all this reaction is stupid.
Why would anyone believe there'd be a monster on board? What's worse is
the doctor on the ship speculates that the gooey substance the monster
leaves behind is semen. What kind of doctor is this?!

We don't see the monster until we get tired of this movie. What I mean
by that is we get boring exposition we don't care about. None of the
characters are interesting; they are just typical monster food. I am of
course talking about the girl who won't shut up, the playful boyfriend
who will become overprotective when the situation gets serious, the
seemingly wise old man who knows how to use a gun, an obnoxious retard
who's blamed for all the damage the monster is responsible for.

We finally see the monster about half way into this movie. A good movie
like 'Alien' will use this technique by creating suspense. There is no
suspense here. When the monster is finally revealed you will wish you
hadn't seen it. Not because it's scary but because the CG is faker than
fake. I'm not just talking about the looks (which is terrible), I'm
also talking about its mechanical movement. But I should've known
better when the opening CG sequence was pathetic. The 1980's flashback
in Sector 7 should give you an idea of how poor the special effects are
in this movie.

And why was this movie in 3D? Yeah I know we get one scene where the
monster's tail shoots right out of the screen but that was like 0.3
seconds and this is a movie that is longer than it needs to be.

This movie tries to be everything. It tries to be 'Alien' (we'll get to
that later). It tries to be a comedy (the audience laughed once in
throughout this movie). It tries to be dramatic. None of the deaths are
satisfying, none of them evoke any sort of emotion (whether sadness or
fear or relief).

The worst part of the movie is the climax. Here we have the main lead
girl fighting with the monster head to head in a factory. Sound
familiar? I don't mind a movie imitating a classic in order to create
cheap thrills but this just fails to entertain the slightest bit. And
besides all I'm doing is looking at my watch.

And don't make me mention the motorcycle scenes because they were so
random and so stupidly tied into the end. Even in the trailers; what
was the girl planning to do with the motorcycle? Just ram it into the
giant monster?

This could've been a legit monster movie. The setting was pretty good;
it's an oil mine in the middle of a vast ocean. And also there are some
moral issues incorporated into the monster (not spoiling anything). But
the hollow characters and the actors who take themselves too seriously
ruin this film completely. The action sucks, the CGI sucks. One of the
WORST movies I've seen in my life.

Do not let this movie effect your perception towards Korean movies.
Even we know it's bad.
