Some Reviews

    Réalisé par Yoon-Hyun Chang (la 6ième victime, très bon petit thriller), Some est un gros "dommage". Un film qui a cause de la complexité de son découpage et de sa durée plombe un concept cool ! Quand on arrive à la fin, on est soulagé, non pas que le film soit mauvais mais vous aurez cette impression d'avoir assisté à une œuvre de 4 heures, et le pire c'est de se dire : bah en fait... l'histoire elle est super simple... Alors pourquoi tout parait si compliqué ? Reste le concept du "déjà-vu" assez sympa bien que carrément sous exploité et à des scènes bien foutus (les courses poursuites surtout !). Dommage donc d'être relativement déçu par un film qui pourrait être bon (je me fais comprendre ou suis-je trop compliqué pour dire que c'est sympa mais moyen ?).

    Not spectacular, but pretty good.

    A convoluted crime story involving gangsters, drugs, street thugs, hackers, and photoshop (?) that never really seems to coalesque into any sort of feasible plot. Puzzling through the crime mystery is an exercise in futility however, because the film's main focus lies in Yu-jin's strong feeling that she's experienced this day before, and somehow knows that it does not end well. Yun-hyeon Jang uses a number of film techniques to convey Yu-jin's deja vu throughout the film. All of which are engaging and clearly express the sensation without needless exposition. Cool, in other words. Soo Go is serviceable as the hard-nosed, rebellious, fabulously quaffed cop, and Ji-hyo Song rocks the house as a frazzled but determined woman desperate to avoid their oncoming doom. Not great, but enjoyable.

    Solid mix of typical cop action, but with a light touch of the supernatural, giving it an intriguing twist. Well acted, well directed and well written.

    A slow and monotonous ride that seems to go nowhere for the first hour or so. Then things become so obvious everything is predictable. (Spoiler) The only thing enjoyable was the ending since everything ended happily.

    This film is a pretty solid 7/10. The acting is good and the story is pretty compelling. The basic story is fairly generic, but they throw in an element of deja-vu that adds some great spice to it. If you can manage to get your hands on it - check it out.
