Critic Reviews for FLU
Mostly works on a visceral level in spite of its familiarity; these tropes exist for a reason.
Buried beneath a melodramatic plot rife with unlikely coincidences and a love affair with fewer sparks than Robert De Niro's 1990 wooing of Jane Fonda in "Stanley & Iris."
A well-made, edge-of-seat action thriller that's no more serious - and often just as much fun - as Channing Tatum's White House Down.
the shift in Kim Sung-soo's infection disaster movie FLU from buddy laughs and cutesy child antics to what can only be described as Holocaust imagery was too much for this viewer, with poor CGI compounding the alienation.
Kim Sung-su rallies the crowd and action scenes with ease, although the intertwining strands of the overcooked narrative occasionally threaten to unravel.
Audience Reviews for FLU
A Korean bird flu epidemic causes panic in Bundang, outside of Seoul. A medical worker and her daughter team up with an Emergency Response Team member to secure the antidote one way or another. Decent acting overshadowed by the disaster laden story. Difficult to believe aspects abound, and the Americans in the movie are portrayed as violent and uncaringly merciless. Was impressed with Soo Ae's ability to portray panic and determination in an understated manner.
Decent Korean virus film that is unfortunately let down by an uneven tone.
Flu is with out a doubt a terrifying (though done before) premise but with a chemistry-less couple, manipulative child inclusion and events reminiscent of the Holocaust, Flu doesn't have the smarts to make the impact it thinks it's making.
