Korean disaster thriller Tunnel debuts on DVD today, May 2nd from Well Go USA Entertainment. (It's been available on digital since Tuesday, April 4th.)
South Korean superstar Ha Jung-woo (The Handmaiden) plays a car salesman fighting for survival inside a collapsed tunnel while rescue workers race against time to free him in the tense, taunt thriller Tunnel, from internationally-acclaimed director Kim Seong-hun (A Hard Day).
With draining cell phone battery power and a rescue effort that might end before they locate him, days pass by without success, and people start to lose hope as the rescue operation becomes an ordeal when incompetence, the media and government interference slow down the process.
The film also starring Doona Bae (Netflix’s “Sense8”) and Oh Dal-su (Oldboy).
When a tunnel collapses on Jung-soo (Ha Jung-woo), the ensuing rescue operation becomes the subject of widespread media coverage and frenzy. But days go by, nerves stretch thin, and Jung-soo must struggle for his life in the suffocating darkness alone.
AsianCineFest Rating: 3 out of 4 stars; a good thriller
