Audience Reviews for Howling
Ha Yoo's Howling falls right into place as another solid Korean crime thriller.The title sounds like something out of a science fiction or horror piece, but don't let that fool you. The story plays out like a crime thriller should. The initial setup is a bit lengthy; however, as time passes and the clues begin to reveal themselves, 110 minutes of screen time doesn't seem that bad. Sure the pacing isn't exactly on speed, but the wolf-dog element adds an interesting flavor to the plot.The violence is lightly gruesome. Lightly in the way that the kills are intense, but the blood content is held in check.It is hard to fault Kang-ho Song at this point. The detective role is no stranger to him and he pulls it off without fail. The lovely Na-young Lee is a good compliment to Song's character.Is Howling a recommendable film out of Korea? Yes.More
