About This DVD
Give credit to the film Sisily 2km for trying to make something new out of something old. The movie, takes two of the most popular and overused genres in Korean cinema over the past few years _ horror film and gangster comedy _ but rather than choosing one or the other, tries for a potentially new hybrid by combining the two.
Instead of going the parody route like, say, the "Scary Movie" series, "Sisily" literally tries to find a midpoint between the two genres by halving the film, starting off as a gangster affair and ending it with ghosts.
The gangster element of the film revolves around the aftermath of a diamond heist. Yang-I (Lim Chang-jung) and his subordinates, a group of wacky misfits, have three days to find Sok-tae (Kwon Oh-joong), who took off with the loot, and bring the diamonds back to their boss.
A trace on Sok-tae's cell phone leads the group to Sisily, a small "town" made up of a lodging house, an abandoned school and a handful of seemingly sweet people. The townsfolk, however, have a few secrets of their own, having let greed get the best of them after finding out about the diamonds.
The film's real saving grace is Lim, who is appropriately funny as the frenetic gang leader. Sporting a goofy haircut and an even goofier fighting style, Lim is given the best comic lines and moments of the film, and he makes the most out of them.
Though the supernatural element, in the form of a longhaired female ghost (Im Eun-kyung), makes brief appearances throughout, it only really enters the story about halfway into "Sisily."
