Audience Reviews for Arahan jangpung daejakjeon (Urban Martial Arts Action)

1 part comedy, 1 part action, Seung-wan Ryoo's Arahan is a bundle of amusement.After an opening sequence with dialogue that acts as the hook and some stellar opening credits, Arahan is off and running. The first half consistently uses humor to help liven up the storytelling before it turns into an action fest for the finale.The action is fantastic and the CG effects are more than suitable for this picture. What really stands out is the choreography, thanks to Doo-hong jung, which comes complete with fists, swords, and some other special powers thrown in the mix. The final fight is actually quite long and this contributes to the film's 1 hour 50 minute run time.Seung-beom Ryoo delivers a joyous performance with his facial expressions and line delivery. The lovely So-yi Yoon is also a delight to watch. The rest of the supporting cast completes the circle of fine acting.At the end of the night, Arahan is one successful action comedy out of Korea. Check it out if time allows.
