In Project wolf hunting Dangerous, heavily armed convicts aboard a freighter unite in a coordinated escape attempt that soon turns into an all-out bloody riot. But as the fugitives continue their brutal campaign of terror, they soon discover that not even the cruelest among them are safe from the horror they have unwittingly unleashed from the darkness below decks.
Korean series and movies surprise us more and more, because they don’t stick to the American scheme we’re used to, which makes movies like hot cakes with a similar plot. They come from a different culture and morality, which makes their cinema seem very original to us.
In this case, to see a similar style we would have to refer to the American gore cinema of the 90s, low budget and B series, but unlike those films, the Korean version has been created with a high budget, and they have not skimped on special effects.
Project wolf hunting keeps your hair on end from 10 minutes to the final 2 hours or so in which people do not stop dying in the most diverse ways possible. The script has been easy to put together. He boards a freighter bound for Korea with a group of dangerous convicts, along with a similar number of policemen. As expected, a riot takes place that leads to a mutual massacre, and as if no more problems were needed, in a hidden room on the ship they transport a kind of Korean Frankenstein that they keep asleep with drugs, but that when they wake up they begin to dismember and to burst heads left and right.
If we forget the script, the shocking thing about the film is the succession of murders in the merciless fight that takes place, in which each death is recreated in detail, with an ultra gore style, in which each one is more shocking than the last. Sometimes the deaths provoke horror, other times laughter, and other times surprise. When it seems that it can no longer be overcome, the “Korean Frankenstein” enters the scene that gives new macabre options, bursting like a ferocious wolf in the middle of a herd. As there aren’t many people left to slaughter in 2 bloody hours, a story finally appears behind all this that opens the door to a second part.
As it is not an American film, we cannot guess what is going to happen. We are not used to his cinema and this one does not follow the same repetitive scheme. In American commercial cinema, depending on the decade in which it was made, we more or less know what is going to happen. Since we have seen few Korean movies, this makes it more interesting, because it gives it a breath of fresh air, which surprises us with its novelty. So we can sit back and enjoy endless surprises.
