Critic Reviews for Save the Green Planet!
Punk graphics and a snaking camera add zest to the story, which is alternately heartbreaking, suspenseful, and darkly funny.June 6, 2007 | Full Review…
The film oscillates between wild humour, suspense, horror and pathos, sometimes all in one shot. It's quite something.February 9, 2006 | Full Review…
Save The Green Planet has a free-ranging mood, mixing tragedy and comedy irregularly, but Jeong's film is equally free with genre, and entertains its audience openly before pouring on the astringent.September 26, 2005
Like any roller-coaster ride, it may make you queasy, but you'll never be bored.August 5, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Demented yet somehow humane, Save The Green Planet is a visually ingenious hybrid melding horror, black comedy, revenge thriller and science fiction into an unpredictable, cohesive whole.July 22, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
Entertaining, visually inventive and truly out-there.July 22, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
Audience Reviews for Save the Green Planet!
Dec 10, 2012Utterly bizarre, existential, sci-fi, bloody, South Korean madness...Marcus W Super Reviewer
Sep 19, 2012If you look at the trailer, this movie would appear to be a comedy but you quickly discover that it is a horror film and one without a lot of merit. Disturbing.John B Super Reviewer
Oct 06, 2011Bizarrely impressive, Save The Green Planet! is an obtrusive South Korean hybrid of ridiculous mystery, grotesque suspense, odd romance, eccentric science fiction, and dark humor that follows the dangerous obsession of a man with the extraterrestrial. Save The Green Planet! may be corrupt, but the inventive original idea is preposterously remarkable that frankly created a new genre, which Save The Green Planet! selfishly occupy. Organized chaos.Jan Marc M Super Reviewer
Jun 27, 2011This movie is absolute insanity, much like its protagonists, but I can pretty much guarantee that none of you have ever seen a movie like this and probably never will for a long time. I jizzed over the Adjustment Bureau and how that movie successfully mixed two genres into one movie. Well this movie is far more impressive. There's sci-fi, there's horror, there's thriller, there's comedy, some romance and even a little bit of social commentary. Realistically this movie is all over the place with its ideas, despite it all, it's a movie that just manages to click on all cylinders. I did like the story and how there is some emotional depth to the main character, to the point where, even if you know he's insane, you can sympathize with him because they do give you all aspects of his backstory. And you can see how that would drive him insane. So that was a fresh perspective. As is typical in a lot of these Korean movies I've seen, the acting is strong, especially by the main actor, who's really quite great. The rest of the cast is really good, but Shin Ha-gyun just does a great job with his performance. While the movie was not as funny as I thought it was going to be, it was still funny, but the movie was really a pleasant surprise on all fronts. For what it lacked in laugh out loud moments, it certainly made up for it with strong characters and a strong story. Quite frankly, I'm surprised that the Americans haven't tried to remake the movie, while dumbing it down for more casual audiences. But it's for the better, because what this movie does and its spirit, is caught perfectly in this movie and that's something you just can't replicate. It's funny, it's disturbing, it's sad, it's insane and it's just one of the most inventive movies of this past decade and it's a movie I wholeheartedly recommend, it literally has something for everyone. Transformers 3 won't give you that, so think about it.Jesse O Super Reviewer
