YesAsia Editorial Description

An undercover detective gets into the battlefield of crime, corruption and power in The Prison. Screened at the 2017 Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival and the Far East Film Festival, the crime action thriller marks the directorial debut of May 18 screenwriter Na Hyun. Kim Rae Won (Gangnam Blues) stars as a passionate detective who joins the crime syndicate of a powerful crook played by Han Suk Kyu (The Royal Tailor). The crime ring also includes Jung Woong In's (Time Renegades) corrupt warden and the crime leader's sidekick played by Jo Jae Yoon (Inside Men). Lee Kyung Young (Inside Men), Shin Sung Rok (The King's Face) and Kim Sung Kyun (Phantom Detective) also co-star in The Prison.

Nicknamed the "Grim Reaper," Song Yoo Gun (Kim Rae Won) was once a cop known for his brutality and perfect arrest record. After getting involved in a hit-and-run accident, he is sent to prison where he gets beaten by guards and inmates. He discovers that the prison is controlled by Jung Ik Ho (Han Suk Kyu), the leader of a secret criminal organization that also includes the prison warden (Jung Woong In). Led by Ik Ho, prisoners escape from jail and commit crimes without a trace. Yoo Gun soon becomes a member of the crime group and starts investigating the secrets behind the syndicate.

This edition comes with special features including commentary, read-through, character video, action making, CG effects and VIP premiere.

흔적도 증거도 없다! 감옥에서 시작되는 완전 범죄
밤이 되면 죄수들이 밖으로 나가 대한민국 완전범죄를 만들어내는 교도소,
그 교도소의 권력 실세이자 왕으로 군림하는 익호(한석규).
그 곳에 검거율 100%로 유명한 전직 경찰 유건(김래원)이 뺑소니, 증거인멸, 경찰 매수의 죄목으로 입소하게 되고, 특유의 깡다구와 다혈질 성격으로 익호의 눈에 띄게 된다.
익호는 유건을 새로운 범죄에 앞세우며 점차 야욕을 내보이는데 …

세상을 움직이는 놈들은 따로 있다.
감옥 문이 열리면 큰 판이 시작된다!


이제까지의 상식을 뒤엎는 충격적인 교도소의 이면이 밝혀진다.
신선한 소재와 설정, 개성 만점의 캐릭터들이 펼치는 범죄 액션!

영화 <프리즌>은 이제까지 교도소를 배경으로 다룬 영화에서 흔히 볼 수 있었던 장르적 공식들, 다시 말해 ‘억울하게 누명을 쓴 주인공, 죄수들을 억압하는 교도관, 교도관 몰래 탈옥을 시도하는 죄수들’과 같은 설정을 가차 없이 깨뜨리는 신선한 발상과 과감한 시도로 관심을 모은다.

<프리즌>의 죄수들은 마치 직장인이 출퇴근을 하는 것처럼 교도소 안팎을 자유롭게 오가며 사건을 일으킨다. 교도소 밖의 설계책이 새로운 범죄를 준비하고, 교도소를 의심 없이 넘나들 수 있는 연결책이 준비된 계획을 전달받는다. 그리고 모든 죄수들을 진두지휘하며 완전범죄를 계획하는 교도소의 실세가 새로운 판을 짠다. 모든 준비를 마치면 드디어 감옥 문이 열리고, 각 분야의 전문가로 선발된 죄수들이 작업을 시작한다. 누구도 의심하지 않는 범죄의 ‘소멸’ 지점에서 새로운 완전 범죄가 ‘탄생’하는 것이다.

이제까지의 상식을 뒤엎는 충격적인 교도소의 이면, 신선한 소재와 설정, 개성 만점의 캐릭터들이 가득한 범죄 액션 <프리즌>은 그동안 교도소라는 공간을 무대로 한 영화들의 일반적인 관습을 거부하고 새로운 유형의 범죄 액션 영화를 완성했다.

‘디테일 깡패’ 범죄 액션의 탄생 비하인드 스토리가 담겨있는 DVD 출시!
캐릭터부터 액션메이킹까지 생생한 제작기가 담긴 부가영상과
감독, 배우들의 음성해설이 수록된 <프리즌> 2disc DVD를 만나다!

<프리즌> DVD는 총 2개의 디스크로 출시되며, 2.35:1 아나몰픽 와이드 스크린의 화면 비율과 5.1채널 돌비디지털 오디오를 수록하고 있다. 영화의 배경이 되는 교도소에 대한 묘사는 이제까지 한국 영화에서 나온 그 어떤 교도소 보다 더 현실감 넘치며, 범죄 액션 영화 장르 특유의 타격음은 5.1 채널의 오디오 특성을 잘 살린 효과적인 묵직한 중저음을 잘 뽑아내고 있다.

부가영상이 수록된 디스크 2에서는 대본리딩 영상부터 캐릭터 메이킹 영상인 ‘선수들’, 영화의 또 다른 주인공인 ‘교도소’ 현장 그 자체가 특별한 영상인 ‘완벽한 범죄 현장’, 액션 메이킹 영상인 ‘생존 액션’, CG 장면 비교 영상, VIP 시사회 영상 등이 수록되어 디테일한 범죄 액션 영화인 <프리즌>의 탄생 비하인드가 보너스 영상으로 모두 수록되어 있다.

특히, 감독을 비롯한 주연 배우인 김래원, 정웅인, 조재윤, 신성록 그리고 최지윤 프로듀서가 참여한 오디오 음성해설은 각 장면별 생생한 이야기를 담아내어, 극장에서는 느낄 수 없었던 색다른 재미를 선사한다.

DVD 패키지에 추가로 수록되는 ‘RELATIONSHIP MAP’은 캐릭터 설정 및 각 인물들 간의 관계를 한 장에 함축하여 나타내고 있어, 팬들에게 영화 감상에 앞서 또 다른 소소한 즐거움을 안겨줄 것이다.

Professional Review of "The Prison (2DVD) (Korea Version)"

August 16, 2017

This professional review refers to The Prison (Blu-ray) (Hard Boiled Normal Edition) (Korea Version)
Acclaimed Korean screenwriter Na Hyun, known for his work on the likes of May 18, Forever the Moment and other films, makes his directorial debut with The Prison. As its title suggests, the film is set largely in a jail, with Kim Rae-won (Gangnam Blues) as a cop who ends up behind bars, where he encounters a particularly powerful inmate played by Han Suk-kyu (The Royal Tailor). The film enjoyed a lot of buzz during its production, having apparently been pre-sold to over 60 territories around the world, before going on to screen at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival and the Far East Film Festival in Udine.

The film opens with Kim Rae-won as Song Yoo-gun, a cop known for his tough and brutal methods, being sent to jail after a hit and run accident. Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t exactly receive a warm welcome, being set upon and beaten both by the guards and a number of his former collars, the warden (Jung Woong-in, Time Renegades) making it clear he's not sympathetic to Song’s plight. Soon enough, he catches the attention of Jung Ik-ho (Han Suk-kyu), an inmate who rules the prison, pulling the strings and generally treating it like his own kingdom. Jung turns out to be part of a clandestine conspiracy which involves prisoners being let out at night to commit crimes to further the interests of a mysterious organisation, and he takes Song under his wing, impressed by his fighting skills and ruthlessness.

It's easy to see why The Prison has earned itself a high profile, as it ticks all the right boxes for a handsomely-budgeted, hard-edged Korean thriller, with a high-concept premise, slick production values, macho shouty acting and plenty of violent action. Na Hyun proves confident behind the camera, and the film rattles along at a fast pace, its set pieces all being well-choreographed and brutal – things do get very nasty in places, Jung Ik-ho having a penchant for torture, including scooping out and eating the eyes of victims. It's all very tense and thrilling, and Na does a good job of escalating things throughout, making fine use of the prison set, adding an air of claustrophobia and keeping the characters trapped in with each other, the threat of carnage never far away. Although not the biggest of stars, Kim Rae-won and Han Suk-kyu are great value for money in the lead roles, both showing real screen presence and having a fine time yelling at each other in uber-manly fashion.

Given Na's previous experience as a wordsmith, it's perhaps surprising that where The Prison falls down somewhat is through a weak and leaky script which never manages to convince or to add any kind of depth. Though the basic setup is an interesting, if familiar one, the drama and suspense is seriously undermined by the fact that it's clear from the start that there's a twist coming regarding why Song is behind bars, so much so that when finally revealed, it's hard to tell whether it's supposed to come as a shock or not. Na wastes a great deal of time on this, making the film somewhat confusing in places, and it would have been far more effective if he'd gotten this out of the way early on and putting the focus on the characters and their shifting power-struggle of a relationship instead. It doesn't help that some of the later developments lack sense and are scarcely credible – while Korean cinema is known for its tales of corruption and of conspiracies run by sinister authority figures, the idea of criminals being let out of jail to commit crimes, without there being any concerted effort to cover this up, isn't even remotely believable. Jung's running of the prison similarly requires a major suspension of disbelief, and Na never bothers to the kind of provide context or plausible detail which might have lifted the film above its admittedly fun, though essentially daft premise.

This isn't to say that The Prison isn't a perfectly decent popcorn flick despite its narrative flaws, and there’s enough here to make it entertaining throughout. Although Na Hyun might have been expected to make something a little more substantial for his debut, or at least something feasible, it's nevertheless am above average offering, and it'll be interesting to see what he tries his hand at next.
