Very close to being Park's best, in fact, the first 30 minutes or so are nothing short of perfection. A wonderful mix of sweetness and eccentricity, while also being a welcome break from this director's usual business (though, he does sneak his sympathy theme in).
Ingenius opening titles and marvelous special effects, original mood, sweet leading actress, but practically everything else is annoying and pain in the ass. I got the point; the idea and message are important. I just hated the other characters and the story was extremely stucky and populated with subplots which disturbed the main story. Sorry Chan-wook, I don't fancy that kind of pointless humour.
19 Mayis 08 & Amelie ile birlikte izledigim en sirin film.Ask hic bu kadar surreal ve degisik bicimde anlatilmamisti.Efektler cok yerinde, muzikler ve kurgu cok iyi.Goruntu yonetmeninin filme cok cok buyuk etkisi var.
Do not be fooled: Cyborg is a natural, albeit unexpected, continuation of the filmmaker's meditations on grief and revenge. Just as his characters bandage each other to go on, Chan-Wook masks the film's gloom with surreal spectacle and guilty laughs at the expense of the mentally disabled (though not without sympathy). Lacking the dehumanizing violence of its vengeful antecedents, it offers a subtler treatment of the subject, but not as well paced. Still, what a dream from which to awaken!
well acted, written, and it just damn looks good. it's a charmingly fanciful story that breaks down the boundaries of reality to create a truly wonderful world. this definitely makes me want to watch the rest of Chan-wook Park's filmography.
The extended sequence where Young-Goon imagines (and actually believes) herself to be a combat cyborg annihilating all of the hospital staff is hilarious and wonderfully done, as are a few other sequences, particularly her suicide attempt at the beginning. Like all of Park's works, this is technically outstanding. Thematically, the movie is clumsy and stupid, unfortunately. Not as entertaining as some of his other works.
