I’M A CYBORG, BUT THAT’S OK
“It’s difficult to imagine how this wildly creative and endearing film could hardly generate one-third of Old Boy’s earnings, but the combination of poor sales and high critical acclaim is perhaps an indication. The film has a slower pace than the director’s previous works and it strikes a strange hybrid tone where it is far too cute to be like his dark revenge flicks, but it’s a bit too dark and odd to be a cute romantic date film. Some viewers may simply find that too jarring a blend.
Fans of Park may be conflicted, but those who appreciate his scripts for their characterizations will be pleased that Cyborg showcases that talent without gimmicks, brutal violence or twists getting in the way. And really, anyone who has a taste for the strange and cute, and is decidedly sick of Tim Burton will be pleased to find something special in this film”
