Summary: Save the Green Planet is a tilt-a whirl genre-blender from Korea that turns film history against itself to create one of the most savage, affecting and inspired anti-violence movies ever made. This is a movie that defies all marketing labels and is exactly what it wants to be: like nothing you've ever seen before. (Koch Lorber Films)

Be warned though. This is a truly weird movie that his NOT for the squeemish at heart. While not a “true” Japanese cyberpunk movie in that, um, its Korean, and doesn’t totally take the “no boundaries” idea, it’s pretty darn close, and certainly merits mention in that sub-genre of cyberpunk. So much so that if you find real Japanese cyberpunk movies to be too much for you, Save the Green Planet is a decent entry to at least experience a similar pacing and mindset.

Still not exactly sure what kind of film this was supposed to be? Comedy? It was pretty unfunny, especially during the... you know... bloody torture scenes. I'm starting to suspect that Koreans just throw a bloody torture scene into every movie they make.

Reasonably interesting, if never exactly good. It's infected, as are many Korean films, by a maudlin stretch so overbaked that it can rival any Hollywood sobfest. The tragedy at the films center is rendered moot by the ending and that Sooni character is so annoying, she threatens to singlehandedly render the experience an unwatchable one (Her stage name in the movie is Gelsomina, which is telling). Several stretches work really well, but too many just don't.

Original movie with interesting plot, save for an odd bit or two and the ending which I found unnecessary and dumb. If it wasn't for that, it would have easily gotten some 88/100. I'm still glad I saw it, and would recommend it to anyone, my mom and dad excluded.

Both contrasting in its beauty and darkness, it's no surprise the director suffered from depression while writing the script. Quirky and strange, it's mind-bending how the narrative finds the time to include emotional scenes that are both flamboyant and enduring. Ultimately, this film both homages the same genre conventions it flagrantly surpasses to tell a hyper-fictional tale rooted in deep themes of human nature, a contradiction that makes the meta-Woodie Allen films look shallow.

Hausu meets Silence of the Lambs meets... Scott Pilgrim? (I only like the first two of those) Whatever it is, it's certainly unique. I'm not one for goofiness, but here it's so over-the-top that it actually becomes somewhat charming. Still, the tragic story at the center of this keeps things from being too ridiculous. It's quite an effective blend of horror, drama and comedy. Definitely an entertaining film w/ a compelling premise and a, well, an interesting visual style to match.

A sloppy mess which includes a lot of unnecessarily sick and nasty violence, and bits of comedy which occasionally work. If there was supposed to be a message to this movie, it was rendered incomprehensible under the blaring sounds of a nonsensical plot about aliens, crossed with the achingly tragicomic cello music. The torture scenes and 2-man struggle dragged on so long that I stopped caring who would win long before halfway. The director's shocks and surprises do not make up for a weak story.

I don't know why I reviewed this so poorly after first my viewing. It blends genres masterfully and seamlessly, switching between and merging slapstick and horror and mystery and thriller and sci fi in a way that demonstrates a sort of absurdity to the idea of genre definitions. The performance is wonderfully erratic and nuanced, and the central theme of the way some people prey on those weaker than them for selfish gain is only very slightly buried under the surreality of the film. Good stuff.

That wonderful mix of humor and tears you get in the new Korean movies; some violence, surrealism, and and little didactic misanthrope doesn't hurt.

Lots of comparisons are made between this movie and some Hollywood thrillers. While I understand why the comparisons are made, this movie stands entirely on its own as a unique piece of genre-mixing film making. It's bizarre and fascinating, and the ending is just perfect.

I'm adjusting my original score of 60 after the realization that the final scene of the movie (where Man-Shik is revealed to be an alien) is not real but instead the dying fever dream of Byeong-Gu. This salvages the ending, which I had considered to be a ridiculous copout before thinking longer about it.
