Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I liked it. It’s a disaster movie that has a lot of heart. The story itself is relatively well told. It’s a little bloated, but it does a good job portraying some truly horrific sequences that really stick with you. I would have preferred less time on the political subplot, but that’s a personal preference. The film is about a massive pandemic, but the heart of the story is really between the two main characters. Major credit goes to lead actors Hyuk Jang and Soo Ae for two awesome performances and for making me care about what happened to them.
Final Grade: B-
Thanks for reading!
