Audience Reviews for Cinderella
This was okay. Not boring though. A bit scary. Nothing like the disney Cinderalla. Some scenes were hard to understand as it was way too dark. I did liked the story. But sometimes it was confusing. Not willing to watch it again though.More
There are some decent ideas being thrown around in here, but by the end they all feel like a gimmick and Cinderella amounts to little more than average genre fare. The confrontation of Korea's obsession with plastic surgery is always interesting, but Time did it far better, and for this movie it just seems like a coat rack to hang some overbaked atmosphere and jump scares on. Good acting and occasional aesthetic surprises all seem counterbalanced by the fact that the movie is so fucking dark, you can never actually see what's going on. Most likely a budgetary constraint, Cinderella's already barely-coherent plot is further crippled by this lousy choice.
Definitely skippable, unless Asian horror is your comfort food (as it is mine).
Rather than tackle the subject of plastic surgery and using the horror as a subtle commentary Cinderella is the same Asian horror movie we've come to expect. What starts out promising, with more naturalistic performances than most similar films, soon descends into a familiar and dull mystery horror. The twists are predictable and the connection between the story and Cinderella could have been so much more. The mother split between daughters is quite an interesting character on paper, but she is simply played and written as a stereotypical antagonist.More
