I have to say, I am amazed at the number of people who seem to have dislikes for this film. It's like a film on steroids. When I first saw it, I found it to be a powerful, compelling film. After a while, I became quite enamored with it, and I could easily see how the film's ending could have been better, but, I'm sure that many will agree that it was well done, and was a powerful, uplifting film. I've watched it three or four times now, and I'm still thoroughly absorbed. As a film, it is a resounding success. As a film on steroids, it is a resounding failure. It has become, in my opinion, an act of pure self-indulgence on the part of the film makers to appear to have succeeded in some way by making a film that, by today's standards, would be considered to be a "remake" or "sequel" of a classic. The ending of the film is, in my opinion, really a major flaw, because it is at the very end of the film that it completely destroys the impact of the film, and makes it into a "hollow" film. It really seems that the film makers were so desperate to please the audience that they completely abandoned any shred of respect for the original film's ending. I must admit that, while I enjoyed the ending, I did feel like I had seen the original film a hundred times before, and the ending was so wrong that I could not help but notice it. It's not just the ending, it's the entire film. So, in conclusion, I am not at all disappointed with the film, but I can't help but think that the film makers could have done a better job. If you are a fan of the original film, you will undoubtedly find this film to be a resounding success. I found it to be a superb film, and so, overall, I would give it a 7.5/10.

I'm not a fan of "Molly," the first Korean movie I saw in a while. I liked the director's previous movie "Tao of the Black Dragon" (the author of which is also the main protagonist in this film) but that's probably the reason why I gave this movie a watch. Now that I've seen this movie, I understand why it received an awful lot of negative reviews from Korean film critics. The plot is pretty thin. The director has used one of the most cliche ideas in the history of Korean film: the jealous wife of a family that is united by the blood. The husband is a student, but his family is much better off without him. When his family is threatened, the man must go back to his wife and daughter. The story is simple. It could be called a "same old story." It has no real depth or originality. It is a classic story, but it is quite sad that it has received such a low rating from Korean critics. I don't know why, but this movie really left me feeling depressed. I think the message is that sometimes you just have to let go of the past and move forward with the best interests of your family. Perhaps, that's why the director chose to make this movie. The actors in the film are quite good. I have to give a special mention to Yoon-Jae Jang, who plays the lead male character. He is one of my favorite actors in Korea. He is a very talented actor and he shows in this film. I think that this is his breakthrough movie. This film is not for everyone. It is not the kind of movie that will make you cry. If you want to see something completely different, I recommend you watch "A Ghost Story" or "The Story of a Serial Killer."
