Review:

The Park family seem to lead a quite ordinary and peaceful life; well, maybe a little poorer than the average Seoul citizens. Park Hee-bong (played by Byun Hee-bong) is a man in his late 60s running a small snack bar on the banks of the Seoul's Han River and, living with his two sons, daughter and granddaughter.

Hee-bong's elder son Gang-du ( Song Gang-ho) is an immature and incompetent man in his 40s, whose wife left home long ago. Nam-il (by Park Hae-il) is the youngest son, an unemployed grumbler, and daughter Nam-joo (by Bae Du-na) is an archery medallist and member of the national team.

What the three generations of the Park clan doesn't know, is that a bloodthirsty mutant of indeterminate origin is about to rise up unannounced from the Han River. When the creature abducts the granddaughter and the dysfunctional remnants of the group decide to come together to save her, so begins a terrifying lesson of a new concept of family...

TBH I wouldn't bother, the film is truly awful IMHO.

I agree powlest, a real waste of time, even worse than open water.

Reviews on Amazon are good, I think i'll give it a go, I love creature features.

I know it's all subjective and all but in the spirit of balance I thought this was pretty good. Unlikely cast of 'heroes', some reasonably good special effects and a sense of humour. Good fun... if you can read!!!

Open Water though, although I thought that was very good too, is a completely different kind of movie!
