Movie Info

Engineered to live just three years, cyborgs have captured a lab containing DNA samples that they hope will extend their lifespans. Police officers R (Ji-tae Yu) and Noma (Yun Chan) use deadly force to tamp down the rebellion, as R considers a personal dilemma. His lover, Ria (Seo Rin), is a near-death cyborg, and R wonders if he should implant her computerized brain into a local prostitute. Meanwhile, he and Noma face an outlaw cyborg who's hatching his own body-snatching plot.

    Visually cool, but storyline slow and uninteresting.

    the year is 2080 but cigarette smoking is as popular as ever in this 'Blade Runner' look alike. As in BR, everything is dark and moody and rather slow and incoherent at times. The fight scenes are choreographed well with alot of stop action photography. Ji-tae Yu puts forth another fine effort, and the movie is definitely worth a watch for the effects and scenery. However, when boiled down to its core elements, its a romance with a cyborg story and the romantic angle really doesnt seem credible. The ending is a bit too shmaltzy for my taste, but I do applaud the effort. See it and decide for yourself!

    Visually rich and vibrant, worth watching if you're a sci-fi buff, but on the whole this film's plot is too incoherent and choppy to really allow the viewer to sit back and enjoy the scenery...like Blade Runner, which this tries so carefully to emulate.

    It's Blade Runner alright but not as we know it. Taking on similar themes and a similar plot Natural City struggles to find its voice. It does accomplish this however through the simply breathtaking visuals on display, from the sets to the CGI and even the costumes. The film is so proud of its grandeur that during the closing credits a series of pre-production sketches are shown. The action scenes are also not to be sniffed at, creating a genuine thrilling experience. It does however collapse under its own weight, with the plot being stretched to 2 hours where 100 minutes would have sufficed.
