En 1859, le Joseon féodal est gangrainé par de nombreuses catastrophes naturelles, des récoltes maigres, la pauvreté, la famine et la mort. Pourtant, les riches nobles ne se soucient que de leur richesse et continue d'exploiter et de persécuter les pauvres. Dans cette période sombre, KUNDO, un groupe de valeureux voleurs, est l'infime espoir du peuple et l'objet des craintes des nobles injustes. Joo Yoon est le fils d'un riche noble mais sa mère est concubine. Bien qu'il excelle dans les arts martiaux, il n'est pas reconnu pour son talent à cause de l'origine de sa mère. Après avoir tué la mère et la soeur du pauvre boucher Dol Moo Chi, le riche Joo Yoon a un pouvoir absolu sur lui. Aveuglé par la vengeance, Dol Moo Chi rejoint KUNDO et dégaine son épée pour les pauvres. Modifier la traduction

Part-Robin Hood, part-American Westerns; Kundo Age of Rampant scored big to be certified as one of the most entertaining and high scale South Korean films of the year.

There's nothing new under the sun, the film is about a Ronbin Hood-like gang who steals from the corrupted rich and gives to the helpless poor. Set in the twilight years of Joeson period, the film is a hybrid historical piece about martial arts, nobility and revenge. The plot takes its time to make the main character meet his destiny but the remaining space wasn’t wasted at all; the screenwriting always focused on the remaining characters and some colourful dialogues in between.

Kundo depicts a strong combination between the usual Asian melodrama and martial arts’ style. It was successful at portraying both flying fighting scenes as well as the characters’ feelings within. It also focused on inserting some pretty nice dark humour sequences without disregarding the serious melodramatic tone of the period piece. The over use of explanatory narration might come out wrong in few sequences. The screenwriting over-focused on some trivial side stories but it managed to come back into the right track soon enough.

Led by the overly charismatic Ha Jung Woo, the acting department was impressive. The main character had a very rough start that made him a part of the Kundo tribe, his journey was pretty much enjoyable and Jung Woo was too darn good at making it feel real – except the age part of course, there’s no way he looks 18 to 22 year-old.

On the other hand, Kang Dong Won was the freaking king of the action department in this film. Being used to swordsmanship due to his other period action films; he did the whole remarkable martial arts himself without resolving to stunts; that’s in itself is too wonderful for words. Other than that, he was amazingly good at playing the role of the dangerous villain. Of course, the back story provided to his character was extremely helpful at setting an unbreakable ground for what he has to portray. It’s been a long time since I last saw a very detailed back story of a villain; as if they’re making you think that any monstrous thing he does is legitimate.

Other actors were pretty good; they were fit to each character they played especially the Kundo group where Ma Dong Seok, Jo Jin Woong and Lee Kyeong Yeong are only few to mention.
Inspired by Kurosawa and Tarantino’s filmmaking, director Yun Jong Bin pulled off a memorable piece. His directing style was poignant with top notch technicalities. It’s a fact that visuals worked so well for this film, the lavishing designs and well-chosen colours were a great plus for this film’s cinematographic appeal. Even the polished sceneries, well-crafted aristocrats’ mansions and clothes were very well handled.

Watch if:
-You like dramatic period pieces with action.
-You like combination between Asian and western filmmaking.
-You like the main actors because Ha Jung Woo and Kang Dong Won were extremely good.

Do not watch if:
-You dislike historical pieces.

Despite some minor flaws, Kundo Age of Rampant is a very pleasant period film that’s well-worthy of the domestic success it witnessed upon its release.

Kundo started out really well. Even though the story was familiar I felt like it was a fresh telling. It had interesting characters and a lot of familiar faces that i always enjoy. However going into the climax of the film i felt like things got a bit ridiculous and broad. The detailed stories that we had seen earlier gave way to lots of cool action scenes but I felt the second half lacked heart and organization. A few things were left unexplained and just seemed far fetched in the world they had created previously.

The performances were solid but not exceptional. Funnily enough i felt more drawn to the villain played by Kang Dong Won ,maybe it was his eyes or beautiful costumes but I found myself getting annoyed at the hero and wanting the villain to be reformed and join our group of bandits.

It's a decent movie and it sticks to the genre pretty closely. Don't expect any surprises or surprise revelations the plot is very simple and straight forward. The only surprise was how much they swore (at least in the subtitles) and how many balls/penis innuendo there was.


Watch this if you like martial arts, a good Robin Hood retelling or are a fan of any of the stars.

It was ok , but nothing more .
