Attack the Gas Station (Juyuso seubgyuksageun) Photos

Movie Info

Kim Sang-jin directs this riotous send-up of Korea's rigidly hierarchical society. A quartet of nihilistic losers including an alienated athlete, a longhaired burnout, a spaced-out artist, and a muscle-bound meathead take to knocking over 24-hour gas stations. Their initial success eventually leads to trouble when they decide to hold up the same gas station again "just for fun." Unfortunately, the store manager had his wife take much of the day's earnings home with her just prior to the robbery. Stumped as what to do next, the four take the staff hostage and start to taunt the middle-aged manager (his underlings soon join in). They ridicule potential customers and order Chinese food until the film's delirious final showdown between the four protagonists, the cops, a local clan of gangsters, and irate delivery boys. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

    The premise is simple and and absolutly halarious, however, the film unfortunately isn't as funny, but that doesn't mean that is isn't a lot of fun and worth seeing, it just wasn't as great as I expected. Still a recommendation though.

    Silly absurdist fun & I like silly absurdist fun, the first half is somehow monotonous & irritating but after that it gets better, One thing that I liked about this was that it hadn't a forced morale or stupid sentimental cliches althought it was getting close to have some near the end

    Finally got around to seeing this and I gots ta say, it does live up to the hype. I liked how they kept our young villains villainous, for the most part. The flashbacks explained the assholes a lot, but they were still not made out to be tragic the way a Hollywood film would portray them. A lot of fun for a movie that mostly takes place in a gas station.
