Good creature effects, decent action but the camera work n editing r shoddy.
20 February 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Coincidentally this is the second Korean period action film I saw. The kingdom is under the threat of plague. Orders r issued to eliminate all the infected ones. A general is exiled after he saves a small girl being terminated. His sidekick tags along with him cos he owns his life to the warrior. Fast forward in the future n ther r rumors of a terrifying creature in the mountains. The King calls upon the general out of retirement. The story isn't gripping, the characters r not sketched properly. The creature effects r noteworthy. It looks like a hybrid. Body of a raging bull n face of a lion. Ther is some good action but the camera work n editing is shoddy. Nevertheless, it's a decent creature flick.
