YOON Jong-bin's "Kundo"is the story of a bandit clan that take on the tyranny inflicted on the peasant population during the Joseon Dynasty. The film is a Korean period piece, set in 1859, and brings together a modern vision to classic Asian action-fantasy with tradition dramatic passion. "Kundo" tells a very powerful saga between the impoverished people suffering at the hands of the ruling nobility. It is a tale that rings, not only in historical record, but in modern time around the world. Similar to the legend of Robin Hood, "Kundo" creates a wonderful narrative of one group of individuals standing up to the oppression, taking what they can from the rich, and handing it out to the poor. Something that is universally recognizably as true human heroism. Yoon brings the story to live in epic style, filled with both visual and emotional power that captivates. The special effects in "Kundo" are restrained and by no means rise as the star of this film. The story, with all its raw intensity, personable emotion, and hypnotizing sound effects are of equal status in this one. The choreographed fighting style is every bit as entertaining as Hong Kong's action films that match this type of film. However the character that develops in "Kundo" balances that fantastical ability of Asian martial arts and war with true passionate story telling that hits at the heart. It is relatable on so many levels. At times the film reminds me of the American westerns of the late 60's and early 70's that tried to give an honest voice to the First Peoples plight.Over all I have to say the "Kundo" is an affective film-creating a strong atmosphere than pulls you into the story completely. Yoon is brilliant in his ability to make a historical picture relevant to modern audiences while honoring the past. Elements of Western bravado show at certain moments, without spoiling the film I can only say that the film is truly entertaining, giving moments of Kevin Reynolds' "Prince Of Thieves" dramatically-Hong Kong styled fighting and action reminiscent of Tsui Hark's "Once Upon A Time In China". Ther is also a bit of wild west attitude in "Kundo" that reminds me of Christopher Cain's "Young Guns". And yet Yoon manages to keep a unique signature style that is what must be totally Korean, all the elements that make "Kundo" such a stellar film are balanced perfectly with out being overstated. It is a true cinematic gem.

Once the story was laid out was pretty enjoyable, the overall layout of events in the story could use a little tweaking. The voice talent was a great casting. The last 15 minutes of the film was by far the best of the whole film. I suggest watching with the kids who may enjoy the whole movie, since they are more the target audience.
Michael S (de) wrote: This movie starts off with an incredibly hypnotizing style of long subtle takes and natural dialogue. I do think it gets a little long winded towards the end and isn't as great as Uncle Boonme or Tropical Malady, but still an exceptionally strong film about love, and it's power to move people forward despite the worst of circumstances. Not for casual film audiences because of it's idle narrative functions. Also I've never seen a movie where the credit and title come on 45 minutes in.

Innanzitutto perche' se per quanto riguarda gli eventi principali della storia siamo chiaramente ancorati ad un periodo storico-geografico ben preciso, gli eventi secondari si intrecciano in un avanti e indietro che ben presto ti porta a chiederti dove cavolo sei, perche' il personaggio che fino a dieci minuti prima era giovane ora e' completamente diverso, o chi sia quest'altro che entra in scena. Ma l'effetto riesce completamente, anche quando alla fine sei quasi convinto che la storia fallisca in un punto principale, tutto torna comunque magicamente al suo posto. Un film consigliato, che ti far ascoltare della bella musica, ma non solo.
