A new sci-fi movie from the director of Train to Busan is making Gangbusters on Netflix
Clones and robots at number one.
According to Netflix Weekly Top 10, Yeon Sang-ho, director of Train to Busan, sees his latest creation hit number one in the Top 10 Non-English Movies category in its debut week.
While Jung_E premiered on January 20, 2023, it is said Netflix Official SiteIn just three days, it has already clocked up a total of 19.3 million hours viewed, making the top 10 list in 80 countries.
The South Korean sci-fi film presents an alternate version of Earth in a 22nd-century post-apocalyptic scenario where people live in a civil war in space as their home planet is uninhabitable. Kang Soo-yeon is Yun Seo-hyun, the team leader of the Jung_E project at Kronoid Lab, where they are trying to develop brain cloning.
Since her mother Captain Yun Jung-yi (Kim Hyun-joo) died as a child during the civil war, they try to clone her brain to create a robotic mercenary capable of ending the civil war. The film features the final appearance of Kang Soo-yeon, who died of cardiac arrest in May 2022 prior to the film’s release.
While its popularity on the streaming platform is undeniable, Jung_E fails to impress some viewers as it currently holds an average 5.4 out of 10 on IMDb and a lackluster approval rating of 47 percent Rotten tomatoes. While the plot is considered unoriginal, the emotional mother-daughter relationship seems to be what keeps viewers hooked, as are the action fight scenes. In short, it seems Yeon Sang-ho has yet to surpass Train to Busan. However, for fans of robots and AI, this could be a fun pastime.
