FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/jung-e-review
“JUNG_E is not what viewers expect.
A war flick without the war, Yeon Sang-ho places the post-apocalyptic action in the background and instead focuses on a compelling study of what it means to be human with a touching mother-daughter relationship at its core.
Despite some frustratingly over-the-top performances and one intolerably irritating character, the filmmaker’s message is well-intended, clear, and meaningful.
Unnecessary exposition and inconsistent visual effects don’t help elevate the generic premise, but the impressive stunt work, epic score, and some genuinely captivating combat sequences make it an overall satisfying viewing.”
Whilst coming in what appears to be an exciting sci-fi wrapper, what’s inside, is a complete let down.
Jung-E is in simple terms a woke bore fest. The action, when it arrives after many many minutes of thoroughly tedious female empowerment and navel gazing, is too brief and for this viewer, utterly unexciting.
in summary, don’t let the glitzy box fool you, there’s little of any consequence inside.
Yeon Sang-ho is director and writer in this futuristic tale about a legendary mercenary Captain Yun Jung-yi (Kim Hyun-joo) who leads the revolt with Allied Forces against the Adrian Republic, after attacking Earth and man-made shelters in outerspace, in the not-too-distance future.
During her final mission, Captain Yun Jung-yi is left in a comatose state while her family is approached by the research institute Kronoid, with a proposition to clone her brain in order to develop an AI mercenary code-named JUNG_E, who will finally lead the Allied Forces to victory. Kang Soo-yeon in her final film appearance, may she rest in peace. Delivers an emotional performance as the daughter of war-hero, Yun Seo-hyun, who is the team leader of the research project and works diligently towards upholding her mother’s legacy. I believe that keeping the honor of our ancestors was the overall message of the film, but it did become somewhat muddled in an otherwise decent premise. The storyline feels incomplete or it could have been a pilot for a television-series. The saving grace for the film was the action sequences with Kim Hyun-joo which were exceptional and well-choreographed. Including the opening sequence. The team behind the visual effects completely outdid themselves as this is one of the most visually remarkable films that I have ever seen from a Korean release. I can see them receiving numerous accolades for the outstanding detail on the landscapes of an Earth that has become desolate and inhabitable through climate-change. However, the runtime was too short for a concept this ambitious. The mother-daughter relationship was the primary focus, but I also wanted the narrative to go into further detail about the fate of this futuristic society. The world-building and the characterization should have been more fleshed out as it merely felt cold and empty. The viewer is left creatively malnourished during the closing act.
More than a Sci-Fi (if you care to dig a little deeper)…
Soon to be cult classic South Korean Sci-Fi where once again corporate thuggery is at work, taking advantage of the earth’s depleting and chaotic system. This time dealing with Combat AIs injected with a high level brain function from a deceased woman soldier, who happens to be a mother to one of the chief scientists working on the project (only in Korean movies)! This connection creates the emotional bond between robot and human, giving this movie a surprising depth that has you cheering them all the way.
The action scenes are a gamers joy, and handled well without being too convoluted, like most movies where one never knows what the heck is going on. Production value is high, and the pristine quality cinematography a bonus.
This little gem of a soon to be cult classic is a grand send-off to Kang Soo-youn, with her top-notch subdued performance as the chief scientist, Soehyun.
So gather your nerdy friends, find a big screen, and give it a midnight screening!
