The thing is, I can't really disagree with him, I think I just have a higher tolerance for schlock.
Sector 7 is no masterpiece, it's a big, dumb action horror film where a giant slug monster chases a bunch of nobodies around an oil drilling platform in the middle of the ocean. There's no discernible subtext, there's no real attempt to make the film realistic, it is what it is. The script isn't terribly clever, but I liked the action I saw, and even the ridiculous looking green shots of the characters zooming around on their motorcycles on this oil rig were fun in a goofy way.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that not everyone will love this, but some of you will certainly dig it. If you're only going to check out one Korean action flick on Blu-ray this summer, though, you might wait until August when Quick arrives, that's a more solid bet.
After witnessing the disaster that was Shout! Factory's Blu-ray of Accident, I was wary of what I'd get with this one, but thankfully Sector 7 is pretty sweet in all departments. My usual admonishment applies, though, I do not have a 3D capable home theater, so all of my comments refer solely to the 2D version of the film found on this disc. The image is pretty slick, the colors all pop, and there is plenty of fine detail to be found throughout the film. I was blown away by the impressive contrasty image that handled the numerous low light and night time sequences with ease. Good stuff here. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio is similarly awesome, and drops you right in the middle of the monster attacks with active surrounds and LFE. The disc also features an English dub, it sucks, as they always do.
There is only one decent extra on the disc, and that is a 30 minutes making of featurette. Unfortunately, after seeing the film, the director and cast and crew do end up sounding like blowhards with their expectations for the film, but oh well, I was entertained. One thing that was amusing was listening the DP talk about how stumped he was by the 3D technology. He probably could have kept that to himself.
I like big dumb monster movies, and I think this qualifies. It doesn't rank anywhere near the top, but it's short, bloody, and loud, and sometimes that's enough for me.
