For those of you fans of Korean films, you may have watched this one Korean film entitled Sinkhole. This film has been showing since some time ago in CGV theaters, but this time it was chosen to be the opening night film for KIFF 2021.
For those who like the comedy drama, danger and disaster genres, you may like this film, because this film tells an incident when an apartment building sinks into the ground meter by meter because the soil structure is not suitable for housing.
When the land is no longer able to support the building above it, because it is eroded by the continuous rain, the residents and guests who are in this building and also around it. You don’t want to be a victim.
Interestingly this time, even though the theme is disaster, a lot of comedy elements are included here, making the audience laugh out loud.
As for the use of CGI effects, it feels a bit rough, but it is enough to help make the audience’s imagination enter the storyline proposed here.
The storyline also feels standard, and the ending is predictable, making this film a spectacle that can be enjoyed without high expectations. Don’t be surprised if there are many plot holes scattered throughout the storyline from beginning to end.
If there is one thing that deserves attention, it is how thick Korean culture is felt here, and a subtle introduction to new home safety procedures, how drunk people can’t drive, and the alertness of the disaster team in Korea.
With the variety of emotions contained in this film, it is not surprising that this film was chosen as the opening night film for KIFF 2021.
