YesAsia Editorial Description

One of the top ten grossing Korean films of all time, the 2009 blockbuster Take Off pulled in over eight million admissions at the box office with the inspiring story of Korea's first Olympic ski jump team. Helmed by Kim Yong Hwa (200 Pounds Beauty) who won Best Director at the 46th Daejong Film Awards and the 30th Blue Dragon Awards, the underdog sports drama revolves around the ragtag formation of Korea's first ski jump team. Acclaimed actor Ha Jung Woo (Chaser) plus Kim Ji Suk (I Hate You But It's Fine), Kim Dong Wook (The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince), Choi Jae Hwan (Truck), and Lee Jae Eung (Bravo, My Life!) form the dream team that won over Korean audiences. Take Off, which integrated extensive CGI to create the film's exciting snowscape and competition scenes, was also recognized for Best Visual Effects at the Daejong Awards.

The year is 1996 and the town of Muju is going through massive construction in preparation for a bid to host the 2002 Winter Olympics. The town committee receives notice that there aren't enough athletes representing Korea so they decide to form a ski jump team. Korean-American adoptee and former juniors alpine athlete Bob (Ha Jung Woo), who came to Korea to find his birth mother, gets recruited into Korea's first national ski jump team along with four other amateur athletes. Can this fledgling inexperienced team really make it to the Olympics?

Good Sports Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Korea makes long movies, why not see a longer version of another long movie. I noticed something. I keep seeing sport related Korean films where the judges screw the Koreans over. Does this happen often? Did the North Americans really pick fight after fight and call the Koreans dog eaters? Why not the Japanese, the Chinese ... maybe all this happened ... we were very busy being racist at the olympics.

Well, it was quite a few years back and times have changed. But movies haven't. Check this out, some underdogs are going to get together and win! Okay, enough, actually this isn't a bad film and I really like this new Buzz pictures. They seem to have some interesting releases. A Yoga-based horror film? I like movies like this because my Korean history is a bit hazy, if non-existent. This is a bit melodramatic and the same type of sport plot you'll often see but you'll still love it once the skiing starts. And get a bit worried as the fifth skier jumps as there are only a few ways to show a skier jump. Watch out for an awesome cameo while I wait for a movie about a sporting team made of players who are obviously going to win, who lose.
