Movie Review: Along With The Gods: The Last 49 Days

"There are no bad people, only bad circumstances" this is perhaps one of the lines that I find interesting in the movie and it is true in my own opinion. People are created good and the only thing that made them bad is the circumstances that are laid to them. They may choose the right decision or the wrong ones, depending on the situation.

"Along With The Gods" is a Korean fantasy action movie that is directed by Kim Yong-hwa based on a webtoon created by Joo Ho-min. Accordingly, the movie "Along With The Gods" is shot as one but was presented in two parts that made the second one a sequel. Just like the movie Lord of the Rings which they filmed the entire trilogy at once and presented it separately. For the "Along With The Gods", The Two Worlds  was the first and the second was the recent The Last 49 Days.

It's really hard to review movies that are in parts because in my case I have not watched the first part which makes me clueless of what was everything is all about. But of course a good movie will always give you a good insight if it is presented beautifully and vividly.     

In this film "Along With Gods: The Last 49 Days" revealed an interesting truth about the characters' past. Before they became guardians, they were humans. This delivers an interesting twist in the story.

If they assist 49 souls get their reincarnations in a millennium, the three Afterlife Guardians Gang-lim (HA Jung-woo), Hewonmak (JU Ji-hoon), and Deok-choon (KIM Hyang-gi) were promised to get their own reincarnations by the king of Afterlife, Yeomra (LEE Jung-jae). The 3 Guardians choose Su-hong (KIM Dong-wook) as their candidate, but doubts were cast on their candidate, since he wreaked havoc in the Living World by turning into a vengeful spirit.

In exchange for Su-hong’s fair trial, Yeomra tasks the 3 guardians to ascend an old man from the Living World who has surpassed his allotted lifespan. While on the mission, they encountered a rogue god known as Household God (Don LEE) who was protecting the old man and his grandson from the Afterlife Guardians.

Eventually, Hewonmak and Deok-choon discover that the Household God was the Afterlife Guardian who ascended the two of them a millennium ago. To get back their memories of their previous lives, they begin helping the Household God. Can they handle what they will discover from their previous lives? And how will it affect Su-hong’s trial?

According to Director KIM Yong-hwa, in The Two Worlds, they focused into building a believable world in order to focus more on character building and the relationships between them in THE LAST 49 DAYS. Another thing to look forward to in the movie is its CG effects and amazing production designs that make the worlds in the movie look more real.

It is indeed look real and with the effects and CGIs I find it realistic.

Of course it is really hard to watch and read the translations but it was, still manageable to see right thru the movie.

I really enjoyed the movie!
