The movie that I’m going to review today. It was a disappointing performance, drawing 470,000 viewers in Korea, far below the break-even point. What is Robot, Sound?
- A plot
The secret base of his daughter’s childhood daughter Yu-ju and father Haekwan (Lee Sung-min) was an ice cream shop selling mint chocolate chips that he liked. But over the years, Haekwan is sitting with a sad face for some reason.
Because I lost my daughter. Thinking that Yuju, who disappeared without finding a body after the Daegu subway arson attack 10 years ago, might be alive, the Coast Guard is looking for her daughter all over the country I visit an island in the West Sea.
But, again, when I was looking at the beach with no news of my daughter, suddenly a monster fell into the sea and the sea washed away by the waves and lost its mind. And when I wake up, there’s a strange machine off the beach.
Meanwhile, a team of Korean aviation doctor Jiyeon and NIS official Jinho (Lee Hee-joon) will be working to help the U.S. NASA send a satellite to Korea and assist the dispatch team.
The Coast Guard finds out that the satellite can only get its number through its voice and will use the satellite to find its daughter. Turns out, the satellite was a robot with artificial intelligence and independent decision-making capabilities.
The Coast Guard, who found the phone records of his daughter’s voice by threatening the robot, begins to take the robot with him in earnest. And they start chasing after the National Intelligence Service in order to find the robot.
Can the Coast Guard find her daughter Yuju? Why did the robot fall to Earth?
2. Robot movie of Korean sentiment
The movie about friendship between human and robot is a popular material in Hollywood. [Robot, Sound] is a movie that attempts to Koreanize Hollywood movies that are very popular in our movie industry these days.
So to begin with, it was quite fun. I liked the chemistry between the brilliant actor Lee Seong-min and the sound, and the Korean humor codes that appeared in between were good, and the combination with the Daegu subway arson incident was good.
But over the course of the second half, there were considerable logical holes in the story, and the compelling emotional code of “Let me shed tears” in the second half of the year was quite burdensome to me.
It was a movie that left me regretful that I would have achieved better results if I had refined and refined the second half.
