Movie Info

The highly anticipated third film from South Korean director Kim Tae-kyun, Volcano High is the story of high school-aged martial arts wizards in search of a mystical text that will restore harmony to their school. Set in an indeterminable time -- as well as mirroring many of the themes and styles found in the U.S. films The Matrix and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone -- Volcano High is in a state of chaos that has lasted nearly 20 years, since a vast Teachers Battle sent the education

Light on story, the fight scenes are energetic and often quite refreshingly silly.

Audience Reviews for WaSanGo (Volcano High)

This is the reverse of the coin of what Crows Zero was. While Crows presents you engaging and interesting characters above anything else Volcano High is a movie that cares little to nothing about the characters, and is just always eager to jump to the next fight sequence. The result is a series of wooden action pieces that never arise the slightest sense of excitement or tension.

One of the best South Korea kung-fu movie that pure comic book insanity turned into live-action. Great special effects.

Tedious and not even the "action" scenes would save this. The synopsis for this film sounds really cool, but his seems to be be "Kibakichi (Samurai Werewolf)" all over again. The film is really disjointed, the story slugs along about a scroll that doesn't, but does exist. The flashback scenes just feel tiring. This whole film made me feel sleepy, because it was just that boring.

Thought it would be a rip off of the X-Men, but was surprised to find a comedy action film different from what I expected.
