Kick'em In The Ghoulies

"It's The Only Way To Survive"

Welcome to our Film review page for all South Korean features. Over the years South Korea's output has surpassed that of Japan and Hong Kong in mainstream Action Cinema from the East.


The productions values are Hollywood levels and the stories always seem to be inventive and mesmerising whilst still keeping you on a adrenaline rush as the action scenes are some of the best in Cinema today , and that's worldwide. 


In the 80's and 90's for action you would instantly look at Hong Kong Productions , but now pound for pound i would say in this new decade  South Korea has the upper hand in the action stakes , often quite brutal  and shocking at times the action scenes are on level with those Hong Kong films from the golden age of the 80's .


But one thing the Korean cinema industry has is it's way of making such cinema , probably because of the relationship between South Korea and the USA media entertainment infuses Asian stories and action with methods of film making more akin to Hollywood. 


It provides a good mix of cultures and it's why if your looking to get into Asian cinema as a novice viewer then the films from South Korea are a good place to start.
