Sector 7’s watery grave
Han Ji-won is the Korean version of â€œSigourney Weaver in Alienâ€ (1979). Thatâ€™s because â€œSector 7 (Korean sci-fi thriller)â€ has been founded on a similar premise as the American sci-fi horror film.
Ji-won is a familiar face to most KBS followers because of her regular appearance on K-dramas. The two most notable ones are â€œHwang Jiniâ€ and â€œSecret Gardenâ€.Â
â€œSector 7â€, if you can overlook some of its glaring flaws, is watchable but you will be constantly reminded of the similarities of this movie and US films like â€œSphereâ€, â€œAbyssâ€ and most noticeably â€œAlienâ€.
The CGI effects are below par. Perhaps that is because its estimated budget of US$8.7 million (RM26 million) is peanuts compared with its Western counterparts. Thus, when the monster finally rears its head, it is not nearly as awesome as Godzilla.
