Best South Korean Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Good, the Bad, the Weird

Nice action

Taking a new spin on Sergio Leone's classic tale, three Korean expats fight over a Russian treasure map in 1930's Manchuria, and one is not all he seems.
Colourful, action packed and hugely entertaining despite a disappointing ending, with great performances, especially from Song Kang-ho as pudgy, plucky Yoon Tae-goo, "The Weird".
The film has a better villain than the original; Park Chang-yi has more character than Angel Eyes.

2 Quick
3 War of the Arrows
4 Oldboy

I don't see why this is second. This is a completely well thought out, meticulously produced piece of cinema. Anything goes and it does. Plus this director outshines Tarantino with consistently unique films.

Incredible story. And just when you think it's over, it's not.

How come this film isn't number one?

Simply the best sad movie, Kim so Hyun did an amazing job here, pretending to be retarded being a spy in real life and more intelligent than the average person. Just brilliant.
