Storyline: For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja-a massive animal and an even bigger friend-at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja...while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home. Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises-the bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the...

Won't radically alter one's perspective but it is good fun
I really wanted this film to be more than a "slaughterhouses are bad and animals are special movie" but it adds nothing to any of the feelings or thoughts already expressed on the matter. Don't get me wrong, it's an important message and it's well presented here, but it's done in a mostly darkly cartoonish way that won't radically alter one's perspective. But it is good fun.

The movie wants you to care about all the pigs but really it's just Okja that matters. Not to mention it seems to chicken out after it begins to give a conscience to the food factory. As great as saving beautiful animals is, the whole idea behind these pigs is to eliminate world hunger, so like, what does the movie have to say about that moral conundrum? Eh, not much. Okja cute and the girl is too (though she's so one-dimensionally obsessed with Okja she's hard to really care about).

Overrated, weird, predictable yet random, but nonetheless Korean.
The main plot does have potential, but when you realize what the message of the movie is 20 minutes in, the writers have done something terribly wrong. Add that with constant horrible plot flaws, and you have a very pretentious movie. What makes me give this movie 3 stars instead of 1 star, is the fact that this is directed and written by Joon-ho Bong who is from South Korea. It is obvious that the movie is very different from a western world movie, but the standards of Korean movies apparently just don't make up for western standards. You could make this into an anime, and it would've been perfectly fine, but in the form of a Hollywood movie, it just doesn't work.

Bad: -Some things in the movie straight up make no sense, and it feels like it's written by someone with short term memory at times. Example: Okja getting mated by a male "super pig" to get babies to produce more meat, but is after taken to a slaughterhouse.

-The confusing character "developments". Example: The character Paul Dano is playing is at a point completely beating up one of his friends/co-workers for a mistake. You are led to believe he will develop into an evil character, but in the rest of the movie he helps Mija in the kindest ways. Every character in the movie seem to change personality in every scene they're in, except Mija.

-The obvious goofs placed solely to make simple people laugh. You choose to make a movie about a very serious topic, because you want a message out. When you then add small (or big) things that almost break the 4th wall, simply to make people laugh, you can't expect ANYONE to take this movie seriously. Example: After the chaotic chase of Okja, the Korean guy who has to take care of Okja (they guy who actually seemed nice to Mija in the start) takes a selfie with Okja. It has no purpose, no addition other than it will make 'some' laugh.

-Somewhat followed by the last point, the chase of Okja by the police is too chaotic. The circus music implies it's supposed to be funny, but 5 minutes earlier you felt for Mija for losing her beloved Okja. It mixes emotions so horribly, but again, I'm not sure if this just is this culture's way of directing.

-The CGI of Okja is alright and not great. In the start it seems pretty good, but later in the movie you always notice something "off" in every scene with Okja.

Good: The acting is pretty good from the recognizable actors. Hide the fact that the character development is horrible (which isn't the actors' fault), and you will see some nice acting. Some of the actors act very "extreme" which I believe is the Korean/Asian way of directing the characters. I've seen a lot of people bash on Jake Gyllenhaal for being too obnoxious for acting this way, but Tilda is exactly the same, and at least it's what is seen as "normal" in the Asian anime type of culture.

Conclusion: Lots of things are wrong with this movie. It's mainly the plot and script that doesn't make sense, and many times it feels like the story doesn't progress, but resets and then starts somewhere else, which makes it annoying to watch.

I personally did not enjoy watching this movie, and I wrote this review because I didn't like how this movie actually is being praised by critics, and how Netflix gave a budget of 50 million dollars to this team, who decided to use it all on good actors and ignoring the script ENTIRELY.

All edible, except the squeal.
It's a classic story: girl meets gigantic super pig, they become best friends, tragedy separates them, only for the girl to undertake a heroic journey to find the captors and reunite with her animal pal. If you've watched the trailers for Okja, you'll be quick to point fingers at the antagonistic Mirando Corporation, the ones behind this genetic breeding of super pigs for mass consumption. And if you know the past work of director Bong Joon-Ho, you'll also be aware that his particular brand of didacticism is usually disguised within genre film conventions. In Snowpiercer, an action thriller on a high-speed train doubled as an allegorical tale for class inequality. And in The Host, American environmental recklessness materialised into monster form, chasing and swallowing innocent Korean citizens and dividing the nuclear family like an anti-Spielbergian fable. Far from being simply a jab at America's carelessness in dumping toxic waste into the Han River (based partly on a true event in Seoul), the latter had subversion built into its style, with sweeping slow motion moments crashing down on the heels of its terrified victims and misguided heroes (the grandfather, whose actor plays a similar role in Okja, dies a sudden, unceremonious death in sacrifice) until we are almost prone to laughter. There's a delightful scene in Okja along the same lines, a slow motion frenzy of cheap plastic and blood over John Denver's Annie's Song, as the villains with guns and tranquillisers come up against the masked rebels wielding colourful umbrellas. The result is enough to wring a wry smile out of almost viewer.

The bag of tricks that is Okja juggles rollicking action, low-brow humour and satire of farcical lengths as it follows little Mija in her quest to be reunited with her pet. Look no further than the opening sequence, in which Joon-Ho paints a striking portrait of a multi-national company interacting with the press. Mirando Corp's big news is less a press release and more a talent show, with spotlights, flashy animations and a garishly-dressed Tilda Swinton descending from above. This isn't the first time Swinton's bordered on the grotesque for Joon-Ho; everyone remembers her clicking, shivering Minister Mason, baring those misshapen teeth and just a dash of mania. You can spot a little of Mason in Lucy, robed and dusted in powdery white, trembling in excitement at Mirando's new breakthrough. This time her teeth are held in check by braces, but every now and again her words spill out from her mouth, and you can catch a glimpse of that unhinged capitalistic thirst behind it all.

But Joon-Ho isn't just content with exposing the big corporations for their underlying menace (the big gag revealed at the end is that Lucy has an identical evil twin who supposedly represents the more ruthless side of her corporate identity, and who makes the cut-throat decisions in the aftermath of the disastrous pig launch), he's also throwing haymakers at the opposing side, in this case being the radical animal rights activist group ALF. Aside from having succinct, wannabe-cool nicknames (Silver, Red, Blonde) and matching haircuts, they're also lead by Paul Dano's Jay, who is the right actor for the role. Dano exudes a polite righteousness that shadows the more outrageous principles and actions that the group seek to pull off, and even when the film is throwing them under the bus for the sake of comedy and trying to make a broader point, he still shines. So, as they swear off food, trying to reduce their already minuscule carbon footprint, and tell their foes to 'buckle up' before slamming their truck across the lane ("We're not terrorists", Jay proclaims), he maintains a thread of decency.

Yet even Jay knows that some of the horrors that Okja seeks to reveal could be too graphic for poor Mija's eyes. He tells her "Don't look back", lest she turn and see the inhumane treatment of the mating ritual that Okja has been put through at the hands of Dr. Johnny Wilcox. Jake Gyllenhaal reinvents the word hammy in his eccentric portrayal of the celebrity zoologist, buckling under the pressure of the ten year spotlight. There are early signs of promise for his character; you can spot the cracking of his persona in his first interactions with the CGI Okja, the wonder in his eyes at the splendid super pig, tentative hands reaching out for trust. But Gyllenhaal seems to have no off switch, but launches into an aggressive, over-elaborate caricature, hurling wine bottles and whispering dark secrets. There may be a satirical point underneath it all on celebrity culture, social media masks and overexposure, but it gets lost in the noise. Wilcox laments that he must be 'on' at all times, but his 'off' is merely a louder, more obnoxious version of himself.

If there is any scene that might turn viewers vegan it isn't the shaky, grainy, PETA-esque footage of Wilcox's abuse, but the penultimate confrontation at the super pig slaughterhouse, and the ensuing long walk past thousands of other specimens lined up towards the chute. The film achieves something striking and disturbing at this point; these are no longer fantasy creatures, but reminiscent of real animals being herded into metal machines to spit out our steaks and pork chops. Yet the overall sentiment of Okja is denial. Having gone through this whole ordeal, they are content to return to their idyllic mountaintop, with a cute little Okja in tow for an extra dash of adorable. Mija might have won the battle, but Mirando has ultimately won the war. And we are left scratching our heads at this warm feeling, even after all we have witnessed.

Bold, Brilliant, and might just turn you Vegan
Bong Joon Ho is without a doubt one of the top five or ten working directors today. When it comes to juggling genre and tone almost no one is his equal. With an all-star international cast and its production by Netflix, this may be his most accessible movie yet; however, it may also be his most bizarre. It's the kind of movie that will leave you laughing one minute, crying the next, and then raising your eyebrows the next. It's so refreshing to see a film not conform to easy plot points and pandering like this film could have done so many times. Rather it takes tonal and story risks that consistently pay off. It helps that it maintains a solid satirical tone throughout allowing even the dysfunctional and reprehensible characters to remain interesting and some even likable. The actors are all terrific, particularly Ahn Seo Hung in her film debut. She keeps the emotional component grounded throughout the film and provides the most resonating moments. The only performer who may not resonate with everyone is Jake Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal goes all out insane for his role and while I enjoyed the lunacy, many will not be fans. My only complaint was that some of the scenes with Tilda Swinton descended into too much exposition which hinders some of the pacing. Despite the familiarity of the story, it will consistently sneak up on you with wonderful unexpected moments. Its another example of the daring and beautiful films coming from Korea, the best country for cinema in the past decade. If studios don't want to lose out to Netflix, they need to be willing to back the same kind of talent and allow for the same kind of artistic freedom.

Pro-tip: Watch past the end credits

Entertaining and allegorical
Bong Joon-ho, director of Korean hits Snowpiercer and Memories of Murder, is back on the scene with his newest film Okja. It is an interesting Netflix original film that happened to compete for the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival. It features Tilda Swinton, the talented Scottish actress who can effectively play any role, Hollywood golden boy Jake Gyllenhaal, independent film hero Paul Dano, and the skillful young actress Ahn Seo-hyun as Mija.

The film attempts to make us sympathise with the vegetarian, environmentalist, and animals-rights advocate's agenda through the substitution of "super pigs" instead of other livestock. We feel that Mija and Okja should be reunited, but, more likely than not, people do still want to eat meat too, right? I happen to be vegetarian for personal reasons (having to do with the environment, as well as certain economic factors), but I can see why this film may be powerful and convincing, but still conflicting for viewers. After watching this film with my brother, he ate "meat-flavoured" but vegetarian ramen for dinner, a decision he made based on the moral influence of this film. He did not keep his vegetarian lifestyle past the next day, however. It's interesting to me how certain movies can have such an influence over people, even if it is temporary.

More than just the film's main message, the film is worth watching because it is funny at times and exciting. I lived in Seoul for the first two years of high school and certain scenes, such as the one in the subway station or when the animal rights activists jump into the Han river, reminded me of the great times I had when I lived there. I think it's a fabulous film, one that I probably wouldn't watch again, but anyway, I enjoyed the experience of seeing it once enough. Sorry to blab. If you're thinking of whether or not this is a film worth watching, go ahead and watch it!

Boring, Long, and Boring
Who was this movie made for? It starts as a cute little story about a GMO pig/hippo who's loved by the girl who raised her in the mountains of Korea. The animal is intelligent, understands English AND Korean, and is a gentle giant. Sounds like a kid's movie, right? Well it's full of eff-bombs, harrowing situations, and a couple of characters get the crap beat out of them, showing gratuitous gore. So is it for adults? Jake Gyllenhaal is a great actor, so I'll blame the director for turning him into a shrill, cartoonish, malevolent sadist. Tilda Swinton is a great actor, so I'll blame the writer(s) for making her irredeemably horrible.

Is it a message movie? Is it about the evil of GMOs? Because the pig-thing is the best thing in the movie, and I want one. Is it about the evil of carnivores? Nothing shows us anything but that animals die to give us meat. We knew that.

Nothing good happens here, don't waste your time, and don't let your kids see it.

No one wants to eat pets, we all agree. Say more.
Saw Okja. Such a predictable story line and such a missed opportunity to go beyond basic guilt tripping. No one wants to eat pets. Say more. Jake Gyllenhall would've not been in the movie and no one would notice. Tilda Swinton's caricature speaks exactly what you think she will. There is so much to say on the topic of how meat industries work and Bong said nothing we don't know. Not much to admire in the movie other than Annie's song sequence. Even that okay-ish sequence seems out of place in an otherwise bland movie. Good movie for kids I guess. They'll buy them Okja toys. Wasted opportunity.

Overly preachy film that can't decide if it's for kids or adults
While I enjoyed the quirky rural scenes of the film the sledgehammer- to-the-face "moral" story really brings this movie down. The over simplification of the story coupled with so many "funny" scenes and characters makes this feel like a children's film yet it is so full of unnecessary swearing you'd think the writers were paid by the number of f-bombs. Lastly, the entire movie is telling us that GMOs are bad (mmkay) yet Okja is special due to her being a GMO, make up your mind!

Goofy but Heartfelt
Ever since I got a dog, I've become so much more aware of the canine creatures in every film I see. Okja isn't a dog, instead a "super pig", but she's very much treated like a dog. And when a film is centered around the well-being of a dog-like creature, it's very difficult to not become attached to the animal. Heck, I was attached to the dog in The Mountain Between Us, and that movie was horrible. With all that said, Okja does a nice job of balancing the inevitable manipulative emotions that come from having a lovable animal with the weight of a serious subject matter like animal rights. It's that balance where Okja really shines.

Okja boasts a wonderfully diverse cast, led by newcomer Seo-Hyun Ahn, who plays Okja's early-teen owner, Mija. She's joined by Tilda Swinton, Giancarlo Esposito, Paul Dano, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, and Jake Gyllenhaal. The story follows Mija's quest to bring Okja back to her farm home in South Korea, as the original breeders of Okja attempt to take her in for examinations and experiments. What follows is a surprisingly emotional turn of a events as Mija does everything she can, including traveling across the world, to set Okja free.

So in that way, it's a brilliantly poignant take on animal rights, with an immediate connection watching a young girl and her best friend, who just happens to be a super massive pig. On the other- hand, the tone set by Snowpierecer director Joon-Ho Bong can sometimes be jarring. As much as I love me some Jake Gyllenhaal, it feels like he's in a completely different movie than everyone else. You have a serious film about animal rights and what some of the consequences are for them in the meat industry and yet Gyllenhaal is running around acting like he's in an Ace Ventura film. Obviously an intentional direction from Bong, but it's still very jarring.

Luckily, Mija and Okja's relationship is incredibly charming and easily relatable, so the tone jumps don't severely impact the enjoyment of the film. I found myself legitimately caring for these super pigs and devastated when they were "taken care of". As a meat-eater, it's sure going to be difficult to eat hot dogs anytime soon. But in all seriousness, Okja is a sweet story led by mostly great performances and a memorable relationship between a girl and her dog (super pig). There's not much not to like about Okja.

8.4/10

Terrible miscalculation
A hodgepodge of talent wasted in such pointless ways that one can only marvel what pitch got the money to make this unfunny, overly long, boring manifest against GMO foods. Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal are totally unhinged which might be funny for small kids but this is not a kids' movie as it resorts to brutal violence several times.

Things are not made any better by the titular pig's teenage patron who (for unclear reasons) is played by a one-note Korean child actor with such monotonic obsession that her friendship with the pig only looks worrying.

If something positive is to be said about this misfire then it is that the pig is well animated and integrates with its surroundings seamlessly, but its design has no personality and cannot sustain sufficient feelings to care about its fate.
