Champion (Korean) - UK Region 2 Review

After his excellent Friend review, Bodhi Sarkar has given us a detailed review of Premier Asia's July 26th release of Kwak Kyung-taek's Champion. You can find the review here.

Kim Deuk-guís tragic death has left an emotional scar on Koreans and the boxing association that is still visible today. It would be futile to create a film on the basis of how he died. Instead director Kwak Kyung-taek handles a delicate story illustrating how he lived. Rather than glorifying Kimís professional boxing skills, Kwak diverts attention to his outstanding showmanship and endurance. In retrospect, Champion is a celebration of one manís struggle from poverty to stardom using only the power of free will.

The film allows the viewer to reflect on a legend who portrayed a vital lesson Ė that if you are willing to give it your all, regardless of how degrading a job may be, then that is what it takes to become a true champion. Premier Asia has respectfully preserved an outstanding video transfer accompanied by a graciously dynamic soundtrack. Furthermore, the quality and quantity of Championís extra material is enough to warrant an essential DVD purchase.
