The Witch Part 1 Subversion 2018 - 8/10
When she was young, Ja-yoon escaped from a government facility, but lost all her memory. 10 years later, when she appears on a nationally televised competition to win money for her family, her life is turned upside down by faces from her past. As a child Ja-Joon's brain was genetically engineered by the evil Dr. Baek, she heightened her physicality and violent nature, by transplanting physically perfect genes and nurturing her with violence, and there are others like Ja Joon. I always wondered how a South Korean superhero would be like, and The Witch answered that question for me. This is definitely not your traditional superhero flick, it is well ground but in the last 55 minutes it goes incredibly insane and crazy with it's unique fighting sequences. The first hour is extremely slow, but the second have it delivers all the goods you would expect from a South Korean film. The writers imagination was on point and so creative it left me in awe. The cinematography, the production, the storyline, the characters are excellent and Warner Bros did a fantastic job with this movie. Hopefully the sequel can carry on with this moment. The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion is directed by Park Hoon-jung, starring Kim Da-mi, Choi Woo-shik, Jo Min-soo, and Park Hee-soon.
