Critic Reviews for The King and the Clown
As the film collapses to its messy, ridiculous conclusion I was left with a strong feeling of a lost opportunity, a potentially enlightening epic coated with enough schmaltz to make it almost camp.
A little disappointing.
Audience Reviews for The King and the Clown
The mock of a jester and the descent of a kingdom to insanity, The King And The Clown is an odd fusion of romance, drama, and comedy with style and extravagance. Ruthless.
I think this movie is way too overrated. And the storyline that is written over here explains 30% of it. I did liked the beginning but it gets boring afterward. None of the jokes made me laugh (it was too lame). But the acting was superb though. I thought Lee Jun Ki was a girl. Damn. Never seen a guy looked so girly without makeup.
Well, I don't understand how Korean people loves this movie really really much... I just don't totally understand with what Lee Jun-ik want... He made the story of ruthless king who doesn't look like a king because he is so childish... And the clown themselves, they're not that funny... Maybe I have a little laugh in the beginning, but the later I go, more worse that I get.. The story get boring, the king become totally ruthless, he kills every people who is stand in his way... And I thought the Lee Joon-ki factors maybe works for people, but I don't enjoy it...
