What or who is this giant idiotic creature supposed to represent? What political message can be dug out from the rubble of this weird, bad, gloriously messed-up exercise in socialist filmmaking?
Audience Reviews for Bulgasari
Pulgasari is a solid kaiju flick that is about the same quality as Godzilla 2014. Positives include an original monster design, good physical effects, good performances, a very deep plot, and a rather interesting backstory. Negatives include uneven special effects and a terrible soundtrack. Despite this, it's worth a watch.
Uneven, yet enjoyable. It can't seem to decide if it wants to be a comedy or a serious film. The monster is a bit goofy, but it's still neat. The plot is good, the characters are decent, and the ending is satisfying. Confusing moments, but overall, it's an interesting monster film.
In a film burdened by endless scenes of crying peasants and Ewok-style human combat, it is the presence of Pulgasari, the metal mastdodon, that makes this film tolerable. For a life-long kaiju eiga fan like myself, it's a nice treat. For anyone else, it's the last movie you would ever want to see.
