A Million

Directed by Min-Ho Cho, A Million is a Korean movie about eight contestants who are sent to the Australian outback in order to play a reality TV game not unlike Survivor. Competing for a cash prize, the young contestants soon realise that more is afoot than just a game, and the stakes are larger than simply winning!

This is a solid thriller that rolls along at a good pace as the contestants are faced with choices they could never have possibly expected. What will a person do in order to save themselves? Keep watching and you might be very surprised.

It's hard in this type of review to tell you too much about the title for the simple fact that we do pride ourselves on not doing "spoilers" that will wreck the movie for you, but this is a clever movie that is well shot. The sense the the contestants are in real danger looms on the viewer for the entire movie.

This is an action packed thriller that will keep you guessing what will happen until the end. Whilst at times some of the feature is dragged along a bit, generally the pacing is pretty good. If you were to make any changes, I would suggest cutting about 10 or so minutes from it and that would speed the pacing up somewhat.

The quality of the video in this release is great with nothing to complain about at all. The photography is clear and enjoyable to view with some great angles used to great advantage. Audio is a similar affair with a 5.1 mix in Korean with English subtitles. Sound is used in A Million to nice effect, heightening key events and helping also to build tension when needed.

Extras on the DVD include a Making Of, Poster Shoot and Theatrical Trailer.

This is a good solid thriller that is well worth a watch, and a worthy addition to the Eastern Eye Imprint. Great stuff.
