Okay...I was on the fence on it the first hour. Instead of jumping into the tidal wave (which is NOT a spoiler alert because hello, title of the movie)the movie tries to develop the characters which I understand but.. 0_o
Ha Ji Won plays Gang Yeon-Heui. Her father dies dramatically in the first 5 minutes of the movie and now his friend, Choi Man-shik, is looking out for her. Of course he's in love with her. The first 45 mins seem to revolve around Yeon-Heui and her life.
Occasionally we see Dr. Kim Hwi who is an oceanographer(?) that believes there will be a mega-tsunami soon. Naturally no one believes him.
So as I said, almost an hour of me watching their lives when *BAM* tidal wave approaches. And then it hits...and that's when I get invested. I'm serious.
Ok so the point of this review...should you watch it? I say yes. This is a really well done disaster movie so if you're into those types of things, definitely watch it. If you like Ha Ji Won, watch this movie. And let me know what you think!
