Overall Thoughts:
This is a Korean film that was writen and directed by Bong Joon Ho who also brought us Snowpiercer. It has been a long time since I watched a film with English subtitles. I honestly am not sure how to describe this movie. It was AMAZING!!!!! This film won the Palme d’Or award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. It absolutely deserved the honor! This is by far the best movie I have seen this year. It was suspenseful, shocking, completely far-fetched but yet somehow almost possible. You love the characters and yet are completely repulsed by them. Who are the bad guys and who are the good ones? My feelings flipped back and forth so many times I am not sure if any of them were good.

Cast:
Superb!

Script/Editing:
The script was wonderful. The editing was spot on.

Special Effects:
Well done. There were some bloody scenes but nothing too over the top. The heavy rain/flooding scene was well done.

Should You Go See This Movie?
You would be a fool to miss this one!
