An enjoyable Korean monster film for its characters, action, and compelling CGI man-eating beast.
'The Predator' suffers from a clunky third act but makes up with impressive action and visuals.
'Gongjak' doesn't have the wow factor of typical spy movies but the performances and characterisations are worth the lengthy recount of Korea's contentious political saga.
