Audience Reviews for Jeon Woochi : The Taoist Wizard

Despite the slightly cheesy special effects, it's extremely fun to watch. The acting is terrific and the playful comedy feels well-balanced with the action. It does, however, drag on a bit.

a nicely done fantasy adventure movie that is much fun to watch. The action is stylized and the visual effects are made very well and believable. A fun little movie to watch.

This isn't a bad movie by any means, but South Korean has never been known for special effects-driven action movies and this film is proof of that. I think the effects look quite bad and for a movie that relies so heavily on them, the fact that they're so bad means that the movie is really missing a key component that would've added something extra. The animations don't look great and the fight scenes don't have any real 'kick' to them because of it. The story is also a convoluted mess involving a flute, a sword, some magic, and demons fighting humans. Does it really make a lot of sense? Not really but the cast is solid and they do a great job at making the movie better than it really is. Seeing as this is a Korean movie, there's a lot of broad strokes. The comedy is silly and goofy. Surprisingly there's no real melodrama and I'm always thankful for that. I didn't dislike the film at all but it is a fairly average experience, bad effects and convoluted story help keep this from being good.
