Castaway to the Moon

English Title: Castaway to the Moon
Hae-jun Lee, South Korea, 2009, imdb
Review: 3.5 Uchuvas
As usual with South Korean's films, when I started watching this, I was deadly scare! Scare to see my 5th South Korean film as, with them, you never know how bizarre they can be!!  Although I went back to see the list of the other 4 films I've seen and the only one that it's really REALLY something is "Old Boy" the other ones are nicely bizarre.
Anyway, Castaway has some good, funny, bizarre moments but, unfortunately, few cheesy ones that kill the film for me. It's very disappointing that there are still directors that want to have that Hollywood little, predictable touch that makes a great film a blockbuster one! This is the case for this film. Everything was going fine until the last 15 minutes.  The script was good (although wilson's "lookalike" is unforgivable!), the actors were fine too. You guys have a go... still is a well spend time.
