On an uninhabitable 22nd-century Earth, the outcome of a civil war hinges on cloning the brain of an elite soldier to create a robot mercenary.
Whilst coming in what appears to be an exciting sci-fi wrapper, what's inside, is a complete let down. Jung-E is in simple terms a woke bore fest. The action, when it arrives after many many minutes of thoroughly tedious female empowerment and navel gazing, is too brief and for this viewer, utterly unexciting. In summary, don't let the glitzy box fool you, there's little of any consequence inside.
FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/jung-e-review "JUNG_E is not what viewers expect. A war flick without the war, Yeon Sang-ho places the post-apocalyptic action in the background and instead focuses on a compelling study of what it means to be human with a touching mother-daughter relationship at its core. Despite some frustratingly over-the-top performances and one intolerably irritating character, the filmmaker's message is well-intended, clear, and meaningful. Unnecessary exposition and inconsistent visual effects don't help elevate the generic premise, but the impressive stunt work, epic score, and some genuinely captivating combat sequences make it an overall satisfying viewing."
