Audience Reviews for Yeong-hwa-neun yeong-hwa-da (A Movie Is a Movie) (Rough Cut)
I enjoyed this movie, I thought the acting was more than solid and I did like the concept of these guys trying to achieve a sense of realism in their fight scenes. Unfortunately, the film chooses to throw in subplots that end up diluting the original idea. The film focuses on their individual issues, the mob guy dealing with betrayal and how he responds to that, the actor and how he deals with negative publicity from all around, their relationships with their partners, etc. I mean they really were trying to flesh the characters out, so I appreciate that effort.really. But, again, it sort of dilutes the original issue of these two trying to infuse their fight scenes together with more realism by actually fighting. I suppose the events around them is supposed to influence the way they fight but the film doesn't always make that clear. The film is still solid, but it could've been better with more focused storytelling. I did like the acting, though the mobster was supposed to have gone through this change where he felt like a completely different person, but his performance didn't reflect that at all. He looks and acts the same way from beginning to end. Well, with the exception of the last 5 minutes of the movie. That's another thing I liked about the movie, the ending wasn't the typical 'everything is perfect and these two end up becoming friends' type of deal. It is a good and violent ending, that actually makes the film better, in my opinion. Still, the film could've been so much better if it didn't try to juggle so many subplots. It's still a solid film with some good action and solid performances.
A very good film about the masks we wear and the identities we try and portray to the world and convince ourselves of. And some kick ass fight scenes!
Nice comparison of celebrity machoism and gangster machoism. Plenty of action and a nice story lead to a satisfying conclusion.
