Critic Reviews for Undoing
Los Angeles neo-noir meets multiformat video grit with varying degrees of success.
Undoing, by the writer and director Chris Chan Lee, buries a potentially haunting pulp thriller beneath flashy tics.
[Director Chris Chan] Lee tries to innovate, but he relies on so many tricks -- woozy overexposures, rapid-fire slideshows -- that his movie looks like the product of a teenager playing with the camera on his new MacBook.
The film is too short because the characters just aren't sufficiently developed, but even at a scant 90 minutes, it feels way too long.
Audience Reviews for Undoing
An indie "thriller" about a young man who returns to Koreatown in LA to avenge the murder of his best friend, even though he had a hand in the killing, and to win back the heart of his love. There really is no mystery here, and very little point at all. There is lots of shots of people brooding and lots of talking heads. Kelly Hu looks great. A low-budget, decent effort attempt at a good movie by director Chris Chan Lee.
Ultimately a fairly boring crime drama, in spite of the camera tricks thrown in to jazz it up. The story itself is fairly mundane, and I just never felt very engaged by the film.
Perhaps this would be interesting for fans of the specific actors involved, but otherwise I'd have to say...
