Haeundae – a rather disappointing disaster movie

Haeundae poster

Just watched Haeundae on Region 2 DVD. What was the fuss about? Dull, dull, dull. Maybe the domestic cut was better (17 mins longer).

Maybe the international cut just focused on the things which might appeal to an international audience, and so they edited out anything that might be remotely interesting. I was wondering how they were going to sustain the interest with just a tidal wave: so they had two or three of them. But it was quite fun when it started raining containers from this big freighter. And it’s always nice to see Uhm Jung-hwa.

According to imdb the director’s cut is a full 26 minutes longer than the international version. #
