    Don’t let the title fool you. This movie is one the best that I’ve seen for long time.
  • Great film!!

    By Enforcer X
    I loved the film but I'd rather have both Dubs of the film then just the Korean dub.
  • Wonderfully unique and refreshing

    By Datflybody
    The best monster movie I have ever seen, this is one of those films that makes you care just as much about the humans involved as you do about the monster. Everyone was amazingly convincing, and the special effects made some Hollywood productions pale in comparison. Do not let this movie pass you by. It is AMAZING!
  • worthless English dub

    By janvinhõ
    the English dub is absolute rubbish. i would've expected iTunes to have a foreign film in it's original language with the option of English subtitles.
  • Really good

    It was different.
  • A movie that goes nowhere fast

    By Mangrove69
    I was excited to see this movie based on the trailer and rave reviews from my Korean girlfriend. It seemed to have a great mix of comedy and suspense almost reminiscent of Snakes on a Plane. However, I was sorely disappointed when I watched this movie. It was extremely slow, the special effects were pretty poor, the dialogue was terrible, and I felt zero suspense. I found myself highly irritated by the most of the characters in the movie.
  • The Dubbing From The Black Lagoon

    By clarkkent61564
    This will teach me to read customer reviews in the future. Godawful English dubbed voices over original Korean made it unwatchable. Who watches that junk? People who watch dubbed movies are about as dumb as the people who insist on seeing them full frame. Attention Mr. Steve Jobs! I know you'll understand my pain! Downloading iTunes movies is a great user experience. It could become darn near perfect, but Apple needs to start including alternate audio tracks and subtitles. I don't get it. Why is that so hard? Soft subtitling is OLD tech. If the studio boys won't play ball, threaten to take your bat home with you and watch them fold... And in absence of that, how about more responsible descriptions in iTunes? Just saying "Language:English" doesn't cut it. If one don't know that the film's original language wasn't English, how does that labeling inform the consumer in any way? There need to be BIG, UGLY warning labels on crap like this, like on cigarette packaging. "Warning: Ridiculous dubbing will severely destroy any enjoyable moments in this film, rot your brain and probably make you sterile! Rent or buy at your own risk!" I would have been happier spending my $2.99 on an enema.
