Format: DVD
This film is in Korean with English subtitles. It defaults to no subtitles. The DVD lacks any commentary, which I would have watched on this particular film.

This production consists of three sharp stories, the first being my favorite.

The first feature smartly utilizes the story of the apple in the garden of Eden as a metaphor for Pandora's box. A rotten apple finds its way into the food chain as cow meal. Humans consume meat from the cow and get a "mad cow's disease" which causes them to act like zombies. The film claims it is a virus, but clearly it is prions. Oprah was right! I loved this zombie explanation.

The second feature is about a robot who develops his own conscientiousness and is proclaimed to be Buddha due to his enlightenment. This segment contains heavy speeches concerning how man has become slaves to his inventions to the point that they impact on his evolution.

The third segment concerns a young girl who orders an eight ball on line only to find out it is being delivered from outer space in the form of a huge meteor that will destroy the planet.

I love colorful Asian cinematography. This one has adopted an appropriate western sound track which gave it the feel of a Hollywood production. The characters were well done. The movie oozes with comedy and satire as well as philosophy. This is without a doubt one of the best "end of the world" films that have come out here of late.

Parental Guide: F-bombs in first episode (spoken and printed in English). No sex or nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done combination of speculative fiction with scientic twist 7 Aug. 2016
By thomsix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Excellent selection of diverse stories. Love the combination of stories all told from a different cultural POV from the usual American style. Thought inspiring and very photographed. I especially like the story about the robot that becomes self aware.

3.0 out of 5 stars Movie - Okay : Blu-Ray - Like 12 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A three story anthology from South Korea that all deal with an impending apocalypse. While the look of all three stories is pretty amazing, the result is nothing very memorable.

The beginning tale is a pretty standard but quirky bit of zombie trouble. The recent zombie craze is nearly as overplayed as the "Twilight"-influenced vampire obsession has been. New idea time, please.

The middle story is set in the future and tells of a robot whose malfunction is achieving total consciousness. Sandwiched in between a bit about zombies and an object colliding with Earth, it's a heady, ambitious piece with a confusing ending. It looks beautiful, though.

The closer is about a little girl who orders an eight-ball from a website and seals the fate of humanity. It's weird, but I liked it more than the other stories.

The Blu-Ray is a standard package. I like the cover art as it doesn't feature the usual "floating heads" or crappy Photoshopped images. The extras are slim. The Picture Quality is very good.
3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty disappointed 14 May 2013

Pretty disappointed, just so-so at best... kind of like three poor Outer Limits episodes, but from from Korea. If it was on T.V., I would have changed the channel.

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so 8 April 2013
By Yuki-kun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had high expectations after reading some of the reviews for this product.Once I bought it and watched it, ehhh, it wasn't that great,but not bad either-somewhere in the middle. I felt like something was missing:more to the story, more character depth, more follow up after the events...For me it's watchable, but not amazing.
