YesAsia Editorial Description

This horror action comedy stars Kim Su Ro (Taegukgi and Volcano High) as a corrupt cop who develops mysterious powers and cravings following a mosquito bite. The rogue insect unknowingly drinks the blood of a vampire in Transylvania, before finding its way onto an airplane bound for Seoul. During the flight, police officer Na Do Yeol (Kim) is bitten by the bug and some of the vampire's powers - and weaknesses - are transferred over to him.

Na starts creating problems for himself on the job, particularly when his newfound desire for blood comes over him while investigating crime scenes. But it is when his more carnal desires are aroused than Na finds himself turning into a fully-fledged bloodsucker. So, when his underworld connections turn on him and kidnap his girlfriend, Na embarks on a rescue mission, offering him the perfect opportunity to try out his new skills. From Lee Si Myung, the director of 2009: Lost Memories.

    국내 최초 히어로 코믹액션의 브랜드 선언!
    지금까지 한번도 본적 없는 바로 그것!

    <흡혈형사 나도열>은 지금까지 한번도 본적 없는 새로운 혈통의 장르다. ‘흡혈귀’로 변신하면 괴력의 힘이 솟는 흡혈형사란 기상천외한 히어로 캐릭터에 ‘코믹’과 ‘액션’을 결합해 영화사상 전례 없는 ‘히어로 코믹액션’의 새장을 열어간다.

    <흡혈형사 나도열>은 기획 단계부터 <슈퍼맨>, <배트맨>, <스파이더맨>처럼 초능력을 가진 히어로를 등장시키는 한국형 히어로 시리즈물을 염두에 두고 제작되었다. 그런 만큼 나도열의 면면은, 히어로 영화의 특징을 두루 갖추고 있다. 스토리부터 마치 <배트맨 비긴즈>와 <엑스맨>시리즈의 1편처럼, <흡혈형사 나도열> 역시 나도열의 탄생비화와 첫 활약상을 담고 있다. <스파이더맨>이 슈퍼 거미에 물려 괴력을 갖게 되었다면, <흡혈형사 나도열>은 루마니아산 흡혈모기에 물린 태생적 비밀을 갖고 있다. 한편, 보통 사람과는 다른 비범한 존재가 되어버린 히어로의 정체성에 대한 진지한 고민도 빠지지 않는다. 여기에 인간을 초월하는 슈퍼 파워의 소유자만이 가능한 기상천외한 액션으로 정의를 실현하는 것은 기본이다.

    하지만, <흡혈형사 나도열>은 히어로물의 혈통을 잇는 한국 최초의 영화로 그치지 않는다. 기존 히어로물에서 볼 수 없었던 독특한 차별성으로 승부수를 던진다. 영화 전편에 걸쳐 코미디의 정신으로 무장해 멈출 수 없는 웃음을 선사하는 것! 그 어떤 히어로도 관객을 웃겨주지 않았다면, 이젠 웃기는 히어로 나도열이 온다.

    상상초월 대사초월 한계초월!
    김수로의 좌충우돌 애드립 퍼레이드!

    대한민국 코믹의 지존답게 김수로의 애드립 또한 역시 대한민국 최강이다.
    온 국민이 김수로의 코믹에 열광하는 이유도 알고보면 자연스럽고 능청스러운 그만의 애드립이 한몫 한다. 어떤 대사도 김수로를 통하면 맛깔스러워지고 익살스러워진다. 일상생활 속에서 주변사람들에게 끝없이 적용시키면서 갈고 닦아온 생활코믹을 접목시켜 누구나 공감 100%의 주옥같은 애드립을 뿜어내 좌중을 한순간에 웃음바다로 만든다.

    <흡혈형사 나도열>에서도 역시 그의 기량은 유감없이 발휘됐다. 오죽하면 김수로 애드립 어록이 나올 정도다. 탁문수의 경마장으로 가는 도중 차안에서 동료 형사가 오버하지 말라고 하자 바로 김수로 왈 “넌 왜 머리깎은 후 파이팅이 없어졌나?”라고 절묘하게 받아친다. 또한 노래방에서 도우미 언니와 화끈하게 놀던 중, 연희에게 걸려온 갑작스런 전화를 간신히 넘긴 뒤, 밀착해 있는 언니에게 던지는 한마디 “식혀~ 식혀~ 너무 뜨겁다!”, 항상 줄 듯 말듯 결정적인 순간에 빼는 연인 연희가 집 앞에서 차 한 잔 하고 가라는 의미심장한 제의를 뿌리치고 돌아서다가 그 뜻을 알고 쫒아가 문고리를 잡고선 “ 오늘밤 날 좀 어떻게 해봐봐”등 시기적절한 애드립을 구사한다.
    이밖에도 영화 곳곳에 김수로의 기상천외 재기발랄한 애드립, 찾아보는 재미도 쏠쏠하다.

    2006년 루마니아 트란실바니아의 고성. 허공을 가르는 번개, 그 위로 폭포수처럼 쏟아지는 빗줄기, 귀기 서린 고성 안으로 소리 없이 침입한 한밤의 불청객(?)이 있었으니... 깊이 잠든 드라큘라의 목덜미를 겁도 없이 사납게 공격하는데... 드라큘라의 목에 날카로운 침을 꽂은 한밤의 불청객은 어이없게도 굶주린 한 마리의 모기! 치밀어 오르는 고통과 분통으로 흉폭 하게 몸부림치는 드라큘라의 역공을 가볍게 피한 모기는 칠흑 같은 밤하늘 속으로 나보란 듯이 사라진다.
    2006년 서울의 밤 도로 한복판... DHL 항공기를 타고 서울에 잠입한 흡혈모기, 먹이를 찾는 한 마리의 하이에나처럼 이리저리 사정없이 날아드는데... 도로 한복판에서 일어난 충돌사고 현장, 억지를 부리며 핏대를 세우는 열혈형사 나도열의 도드라진 혈관을 포착... 순간, 그의 목을 인정사정없이 물어버리는 흡혈모기... 침이 꽂힌 부위부터 혈관은 급격히 녹색으로 물들어 가는데... 과연, 나도열의 운명은 어떻게 될 것 인가?

    낮에는 열혈형사 밤에는 비리형사
    낮에는 인간(?) 밤에는 흡혈귀(!)
    그 남자의 스펙터클 이중생활이 시작된다!

    Professional Review of "Vampire Cop Ricky"

    May 24, 2006

    Every once in a while, a film comes along with a premise that is simply astounding in its brilliance. The Korean Vampire Cop Ricky, which follows a useless, corrupt policeman who turns into a vampire whenever he gets an erection, is one such film. Amazingly, director Lee Si Myung (also responsible for 2009: Lost Memories) takes the bold approach of treating the concept half seriously, attempting to mix together a dizzying range of genres. Even more amazingly, this brave move pays off, and the film somehow manages to straddle the fine line between genius and insanity in a way that results in nothing less than a modern classic.

    The film begins with a ludicrous prologue set in Transylvania , where a Euro-vamp stereotype is bitten by a mosquito (which sends him into an amusingly over the top fit of howling rage), which flies to Korea with the help of a passing plane. Here, the mosquito bites useless and corrupt policeman Na Do Yeol (played by Kim Su Ro, also in Taegukgi), who finds himself turning into a vampire whenever his strongest emotions are aroused - in this case, his libido. As well as trying to come to terms with his new powers with help from a Lam Ching Ying (Mr. Vampire) style priest, Na finds his past misdeeds coming back to haunt him. This threatens the lives of his friends and would-be girlfriend, and pushes him to clean up his act and follow the path of the righteous.

    The film is simply hilarious throughout, with some classic scenes such as those which feature Na on the run from a gang of thugs, desperately watching pornography on a mini DVD player in the hope of inspiring a return of his powers. This gives a pretty good idea of the comedic tone throughout, though surprisingly the film features very little in the way of sleaze, and actually has a fairly moralistic heart. It is worth noting that the subtitles never refer to either the main character, or indeed anyone in the film as Ricky, which nicely sums up the cavalier and cheerfully lunatic feel to the proceedings.

    The film's true strength lies in Lee's skill at combining genres. On paper the mixture of frat party police thriller, horror, sex comedy and romance may be quite inconceivable, but Lee actually manages to pull all these seemingly disparate elements into a cohesive and highly engaging whole. What emerges is perhaps best described as a perverted take on Batman Begins. Wisely, Lee keeps things moving along briskly, with plenty of action and laughs, and never allows the viewer to stop and consider just how ridiculous the film really is.

    Unlikely as it may sound, the viewer does come to care for Na, and his redemptive journey is played out in the best Shaw Brothers fashion, feeling genuine and heartfelt. This is mainly due to star Kim Su Ro, who turns in a great performance, part wacky face-pulling and part tortured emotion. It even comes complete with Bruce Lee style squeals and the shouting of English language slogans during the frequent martial arts sequences. Of course, it is hard to forget that he is a guy who turns into a vampire when sexually aroused, but strangely enough, this never gets in the way of the film's dramatic elements, which actually makes the gag premise even funnier.

    Indeed, it is the very fact that the film is played half for laughs, and half with a straight face and earnest heart that marks it out as a classic. Whether enjoyed as an absurd comedy or mixed bag of thrills, Vampire Cop Ricky stands as one of the most entertaining films of the last few years, and hopefully one that will find its niche as a genuine cult item.

    Movie Grade: 5/5
