My personal thoughts
A review of “Space Sweeper” is coming soon, but i just wanted to say that I enjoyed the movie a lot. Whilst watching, I couldn’t help but wonder how amazing it would’ve been if this was seen in cinema, it’s that type of movie and if it had happened, I think it would’ve been a smash summer hit.
The performances were very solid by the main cast; I could see just how hard they worked on it. The effects were pretty amazing and you can tell they put a lot of attention and effort to make it look as believable as possible. It’s a stepping stone in the right direction. I hope this film finds a lot of success so we can see more stuff like this from South Korea in the near future.
