High sea... and fogs
19 March 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

"Haemoo" (or "Sea Fog" in its English title) is a movie that will be better enjoyed if you watch it without knowing anything about its plot. The story is surprising and full of nice (well, interesting) plot twists, and the viewer will not know at any moment what may happen next.

There is an economic crisis in South Korea, and captain Kang Chul- joo decides to take a dangerous assignment: bring illegal immigrants from China into the country. He needs money and he doesn't want to lose his ship and his lifestyle. And then...

"Haemoo" does a great job in being various things at the same time: a gripping thriller, an action movie, a critic of South Korea's society, an analysis of the situation of weakness illegal immigrants find themselves in..., and delivers a very strong story with great acting, amazing direction, and an ambiguous and threatening mood.

The only points that could be criticized is some repetition of situations, and a couple of decisions the characters take that make not much sense (or better yet, are too fast too unexplained). An unnecessary (but not bad) short coda could also have been cut out.
