I forgot to blog about this movie until my colleague Andy told me he was watching this Korean movie. I warned him to get a big tub of pop-corn to stay awake.

The Unforgiven marks the debut of Korean director Yoon Jong-bin. This graduation thesis of his actually won several awards at the 2005 Pusan Film Festival. (As a trivia, the director had a supporting role as the dumb recruit.)

Looking at the mindless punishments in the military service through flashbacks, the movie is a huge test on your patience with long conversations and lack of actions. The Unforgiven may attract the pink dollar with its sexual undertones, but it remains just as it is.

While the movie is to show the traumatic experiences of Korean men, it may be more traumatic for the audience. I was waiting patientally till the end of 121 minutes for a revelation. There were some towards the end, but it was not worth the wait.

The Unforgiven – Verdict: Not forgiven
