Après la première VIP de son nouveau film, l'acteur sud-coréen Hwang Jeong Min est kidnappé par une bande d'inconnus. Croyant d'abord à un canular, la star de cinéma va vite se rendre compte par la cruauté de ses ravisseurs que la situation est on ne peut plus sérieuse. Face au danger, une seule solution : tenter de s'échapper. Le compte à rebours est lancé : la bande d'inconnus lui demande une rançon avant 24h. L'acteur fait face à une réalité brutale, bien loin de celles qu'il a pu voir dans les films. [Source: Nautiljon] Modifier la traduction

NEW CONCEPT WITH POTENTIAL ACTOR!

Well, if starting with the cast, Mr. Hwang Jung Min totally nailed his role! It really looked liked he was kidnapped.

The story started normally like he was kidnapped and slowly it unfolded that they were really tough bastards and then like any other kidnapping movie, he tries to run and confuse the assailants but his every move was nerve-wracking and at some points, he mimicked his famous dialogue from his famous movies in the very tense situation, that scenes were totally over the top.

Overall, all the actors did a great job but there was a little bit of problem with the police, first of all, it showed police as really weak and not able to catch them properly while the actor is powerful and gives the tough fight and the second problem was villain character looked little weak....

Otherwise, the suspense-packed movie with a little tense comedy...

No honor among thieves or kidnappers

Hostage: Missing Celebrity attempted to be an edgy kidnapping story using Hwang Jung Min to play himself as the victim. With uneven casting and an otherwise formulaic story it over relied on its star to create an intriguing film.

Hwang Jung Min played himself in the film which was a rather odd meta-angle. While his actual movies were mentioned, the character was clearly fictional. Hwang is shown as being humble, good to his employee, and shops just like the little people do at a convenience store. Upon leaving the store he finds three hooligans sitting on his expensive car and that is where his troubles begin. When he awakens tied to a chair, Hwang realizes that the kidnappers have not covered their faces which means they likely plan to kill him and another kidnap victim after they receive the ransoms. He puts his movie experience playing characters in precarious situations into action. Before long, the kidnappers come to understand that snatching someone famous puts more pressure on the police to find the missing movie star quickly and the countdown is sped up.

Hwang gave a superb performance as a wealthy actor who lived a comfortable life suddenly being thrust into a dire situation. He portrayed a wide range of emotions as the kidnappers delighted in physically and emotionally tormenting him. He also showed the character’s frustration and resiliency when he tried to escape and when those efforts failed, used the age-old ploy of turning the kidnappers against each other. Ban So Yeon played a young woman whose life was in the balance due to her kidnapped boss being brutally murdered and dismembered after failing to come up with their ransom. She gave Hwang an ally and someone to protect as well. The actress didn’t have much to do but look scared and stick close to Hwang. When using a familiar story formula, a captivating villain is a must. Unfortunately, Kim Jae Beom as the lead villain gave a rather lackluster performance as the murderous psychopath capable of almost anything. Ryu Kyung Soo and Lee Ho Jung weren’t afraid to chew on the scenery in their roles as villainous lovers. The police officers as well as the other villains were largely forgettable.

Though the running time was only 90 minutes it seemed longer as the story became redundant especially near the end. Most of the time those faults were often overcome by Hwang’s onscreen charisma and the rapid pace of the action. The film would have been greatly strengthened had Hwang been given an equally engaging actor to spar with. If the kidnappers had been driven to their cruelty by pertinent and timely social issues it would have added depth to the story, too. They were for the most part thinly drawn psychopaths who worked together in targeting expensive car owners. Hostage: Missing Celebrity for the most part was an entertaining if flawed movie that relied too heavily on its star to conceal the missing thriller aspect of this thriller.
