Critic Reviews for Save the Green Planet
Punk graphics and a snaking camera add zest to the story, which is alternately heartbreaking, suspenseful, and darkly funny.
The film oscillates between wild humour, suspense, horror and pathos, sometimes all in one shot. It's quite something.
Save The Green Planet has a free-ranging mood, mixing tragedy and comedy irregularly, but Jeong's film is equally free with genre, and entertains its audience openly before pouring on the astringent.
Like any roller-coaster ride, it may make you queasy, but you'll never be bored.
Demented yet somehow humane, Save The Green Planet is a visually ingenious hybrid melding horror, black comedy, revenge thriller and science fiction into an unpredictable, cohesive whole.
Entertaining, visually inventive and truly out-there.
Audience Reviews for Save the Green Planet
Bizarrely impressive, Save The Green Planet! is an obtrusive South Korean hybrid of ridiculous mystery, grotesque suspense, odd romance, eccentric science fiction, and dark humor that follows the dangerous obsession of a man with the extraterrestrial. Save The Green Planet! may be corrupt, but the inventive original idea is preposterously remarkable that frankly created a new genre, which Save The Green Planet! selfishly occupy. Organized chaos.
What a delight, A multi-genre film that successfully twists your emotions & thoughts, Not just some random images and actually an Impressive & thought-provoking experience
Save the Green Planet is a film that refuses to be defined by a single genre and goes against what you may have come to expect from cinema. It's true originality packaged in comfortable surroundings. The story may sound like a comedy but this is hard hitting, thought provoking and at times, difficult to watch. The film keeps us guessing as to whether the aliens exist, it's all the ravings of a madman, or maybe a bit of both. It deals with human nature in a frank and unsettling way. We are given a protagonist that we gradually become more and more distant from. The comedy is very dark but not so much that it isolates the viewer. One scene has a character shoot at a swarm of bees in a sad attempt stop them from attacking. The film laughs at this action by showing a couple of bees fall to the ground dead. This one moment sums up one of the main points of postponing the inevitable. To say what the film is truly about is to give away the ending. A film that demands another watch.
