Face isn't the best or scariest Asian horror film you'll ever see - many may in fact find it rather dull and boring - but I say it encapsulates everything that makes Asian horror superior to that of the West. If you see an American horror movie, you no doubt get up to leave as soon as the ending credits begin to roll - i.e., American horror makes no emotional impression whatsoever on the viewer. At the end of Face, however, I sat here dwelling on the beauty of the story I had just watched play out in front of my eyes.

The opening scene of the film suggests that Face will be a pretty bloody, violent film (it doesn't' get much more violent than kidnapping and tying up a victim, then cutting out her heart while she is still alive and quite conscious). It's a great opening scene, but it will have some viewers quickly becoming disappointed by the distinct lack of more blood and guts that follows in its wake. Instead, what you get is a poignant story of a very sick little girl and her deeply concerned father. The girl has just received a heart transplant, and her father, Hyun-min (Hyeon-jun Shin), worries a great deal about her health. He even tries his best to find out where his little girl's new heart came from (with no success, as the doctor is not about to release that kind of information).

In the midst of all this drama is a string of murders, with the victims' bodies all but destroyed in acid.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie was very good, but not really a horror movie 11 Oct. 2016

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie was very good, but not really a horror movie. It is more of a murder mystery, but I personally like them. The supernatural twist is fairly predictable, but a good movie nonetheless.

This DVD arrived promptly, packaged well, and was even more enjoyable to watch than the first time I saw it years ago. A great Korean Murder Mystery Thriller with a twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars OLD CARCASS, NEW FLESH 22 Aug. 2006
By Anton Ilinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Face" is a typical example of a nice Korean thriller that contains all the necessary for a genre details. It has elements of a horror movie, of cops-vs-maniac films, of a criminal thriller. Director Sang-Gon Yoo keeps the action tense and fast-going so you won't get bored. The story involves a lot of things: gruesome murders after which the murderer dissolves bodies in acid, face-reconstruction, illegal organ transplantation and ghostly apparitions. I know told this way it all may seem a one big mess but finally all the segments of this intricate film perfectly fit like parts of a puzzle.

You'll definately get a twist in the end like you've probably expected. Yes, the scheme this movie is based on is quite recognizable but you can never know all the details... And details make this picture memorable. I must note a perfect acting from all the main performers - I was pleasantly surprised. The cunning story-line, plus great acting and superior directing make "Face" a remarkable film among all other Korean and Asian in general thrillers.

Partly I have to agree with the reviewer 'Ace-of-Stars' who says all those Sadacoesque appearances were absolutely unnecessary. I think they were a bit worn-out but they seemed to fit the story well and this girl with long black hair was actually needed for the script. So... It already became a trademark of Asian horror cinema like a blind (crippled, unpretty, timid - pick any) girl who stays alive in the end of American slashers.

"Face" is definately worth watching, it's not a minute boring, it's well crafted and intense although at the same time pensive like many Korean films.
3.0 out of 5 stars An above-average horror/thriller hybrid 27 Oct. 2008
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I recently watched another Korean horror/thriller hybrid which was also a police procedural titled "Arang" and thought it was well-made. Well, "Face" is similar yet different and both are generally quite good.

In "Face", Hyun-min (Shin Hyun-jun) plays a face reconstruction specialist who basically helps the police ID murder victims by reconstructing their faces [based on their skulls]. His daughter Gin is suffering some side effects from a recent heart transplant and Hyun-Min thinks it has something to do with the donor whose identity the surgeon won't reveal.Meanwhile, the police are desperate to solve a series of murders where victims' skeletal remains are found without any flesh. One day ,an attractive young woman Sun-Young [Song Yoon-Ah] appears on his doorstep with a skull purported to be from the fourth victim for his analysis. She claims she is from the National Insitute of Scientific Investigation and when her appeals for assistance fall on deaf ears, she leaves the skull with him.

When Hyun Min begins experiencing bizarre and horrifying visions of creepy looking entities, he finally ties it to the fact that he needs to work on the skull and gets to work, grudgingly accepting Sun-Young's help. The rest of the story deals with how Hyun Min and Sun-Young gradually unravel the mystery of skull leading them to further clues that point towards other victims and eventually the solving of the case.

There are some unexpected twists in this movie that kept my interest - and even shades of the Sixth Sense, so this is not just a pure scare-a-minute Asian horror movie.

Though the scare effects are not very convincing, there are some gotcha moments that make you think. If it's pure creepy factor that you're going for, you will be disappointed. But, if you are a fan of police procedurals and thrillers with a creepy undertone, then this is worth a viewing. I liked both Face and Arang, both hybrid horror/thrillers and found the suspense element carried the movie through with a bit of horror to enhance the viewing experience. All in all, well worth a try!
