YesAsia Editorial Description

Shining in the 40th Grand Bell Awards in Korea, the sci-fi comedy "Save the Green Planet" came away with three awards for Best New Director (Jang Jun-hwan), Best Supporting Actor (Baek Yoon-shik), and Best Audio Effects. It has also won attention in the global platform by being invited to the competition section of the 25th Moscow International Film Festival in Russia.

Can anyone love our planet Earth as much as Byung-gu? Starring actor Shin Ha-kyun ("Guns & Talk", "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance"), "Save the Green Planet" brings you to a world of a modern hero in his black plastic costume and "mighty" helmet. Byung-gu (Shin Ha-kyun) is so dedicated to the mission of saving the Earth that he kidnaps a company president Kang (Baek Yoon-shik), believing that he is an alien secretly laying the groundwork for an invasion of the planet Earth. Torturing Kang with various hilarious gadgets, Byung-gu now becomes the target of the police because of an illegal imprisonment! Will he be punished for loving the Earth too much?

Professional Review of "Save the Green Planet"

August 27, 2003

Before I wrote this review, my conclusion about the first season of Korean cinema in 2003 would be something like this: Similar to last year, romance, comedy and action are still the dominating genres in Korean cinema in 2003. Most of the films I have seen so far more or less fall under those categories and lack surprise. But I guess this statement should be adjusted after I have seen Save the Green Planet...

The story of this movie is compelling. Byung-goo (Shin Ha-kyun) is a firm believer of extra-terrestrials. He believes that aliens are going to invade our planet, and Kang Man-shik (Baek Yoon-shik) is an alien disguised as the CEO of a chemical corporation. He kidnaps Kang and forces him to contact the aliens to stop the invasion... At first glance, with the crazy story line and the promotional posters featuring a smiling Shin Ha-kyun, many people would expect it to be a nonsensical comedy, but the truth is just the opposite. This is a very dark movie that is filled with despair. Byung-goo is definitely a tragic character. His insanity is not supposed to be derived from any humorous factor, but is strongly related to his sorrowful background. The depiction of this character is much deeper and poignant than I expected. Although Byung-goo does a lot of crazy and sadistic things to Kang Man-shik,the audience will probably not find him annoying, but rather sympathize with him. Shin Ha-kyun's portrayal of Byung-goo is top notch, and it is without doubt his best performance since Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.

New director Jang Jun-hwan has successfully exhibited his talent in storytelling, composition and editing in this film. The story is exceptionally rich and contains elements of sci-fi, action, love, family, detective thriller and suspense. Each of these elements is calculated precisely which greatly enhances the dramatic quality of the movie. Apart from the slightly prolonged torture scene in the middle, the whole film is quite entertaining and keeps the audience fully engaged even though it is two hours long. The editing is also provocative. For instance, the fast paced opening credit is visually stunning. Again, following Over the Rainbow (2002), old Hollywood movie song Over the Rainbow is being used in a Korean film as the theme. It is a pity to hear that this movie did not do very well at the box office in Korea. Perhaps it is because the mood is too cold and the ending is too pessimistic that it didn't attract too many audiences. Nevertheless, compared with many mediocre productions that became box officer winners like My Tutor Friend, Save the Green Planet is certainly superior in terms of creativity and fun factor. It is highly recommended to fans of cult films!

1 OF A KIND !!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This film was a flop at cinemas due to it being catogorizated solely as a comedy, ooops!!, anyone expecting to see a comedy will be very surprised indeed. The story revolves around an earth loving guy who kidnaps a top businessman who he believes is a prince of an alien race from andromaeda and the world as we know it will come to an end unless he stops it, sounds like a comedy doesn't it? Well, while it is very funny in places it is also very violent, in fact most of the film contains inventive ways of torture that are quite graphic, plus there are elements of a detective drama, and to top it off it slowly but surely becomes extremely sad and difficult to watch if you are not ready for anything other than a comedy. Being a huge fan of extreme violence, drama and comedy in asian cinema, i loved it, the acting is very moving and the special effects are brilliant. It grabs hold of you by the face, throws you around the room and drops you behind the couch leaving you in a trance-like-state not quite knowing what's hit you, just that you've seen something brilliant and totally unique. I strongly recommend this film for anyone except the faint hearted!!.

Absurdly genious! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Watching the movie at the Rotterdam Film Festival 2004 I enjoyed the director for starters who expleined in short the funtioning of a blue piece of cloth and a small bottle of cough-medicine. The movie started with a strange guy with an even stranger helmet on. The beginning of the movie was the only plce where my mind was able to keep up with things. From there it got faster and started twisting with action, emotions, laughter, enterntainment from the best kind, surprises and freaky shots. The movie didn't only gave me the rollercoaster feeling but better a comfortable pinball-machine feeling. How can one explain about a movie this intense?? See it to believe it!!
