Audience Reviews for Midnight FM (Simya-ui FM)
Kim Sang-man's Korean thriller, Midnight FM, brings the tension to a radio broadcast.A killer forces a radio DJ to do what he says over the air. The plot for the film has the concept to set up an interesting thriller. The early going is great, as the story lives up to expectations, but apparently 1 hour and 45 minutes in a radio studio is too much to ask. Therefore, the film takes the fun out of the studio and into the city. The radio show is still an integral part of the story, but the excitement isn't as amusing as before.There is an adequate level of suspense throughout, but not much in the way of mystery. The actions of the story take place in a single night, so the dark atmosphere quickly becomes one of the film's strengths. The violence is bloody, although not necessarily anything cringe worthy.Soo-ae's portrayal of a strong-willed mother is a success; therefore leading to an excellent job as the lead of this picture. Yoo Ji-tae follows along as an acceptable adversary.Midnight FM has got the makings of an outstanding thriller. Turn on the radio and think about it.More
