Synopsis: The story takes place in Seoul 1988, the same year Korea was hosting the summer olympics. A small group of criminal friends get hunted down by a prosecutor who gives them an offer to go undercover to take down a slush fund operation for their freedom. The group has to fight in a race to become a driver for the slush fund, and as things are getting complicated the group has to find a way to catch the criminals and to get their freedom.
Seoul Vibe is an easy to watch action comedy movie that you can watch during movie night with family and friends. It’s nowhere complex as movies like Parasite, but it doesn’t try to be it either. Seoul Vibe is a Fast Furious movie without that much racing involved. It’s a fun movie that has some great moments and scenes, but overall it lacks a lot to be an amazing movie. The character is quite bland and forgettable, and the story is not super interesting. The setting of the story is perfect and it definitely had the potential to be a fantastic movie, but it simply didn’t deliver. It’s an action comedy movie that doesn’t deliver on any of those points. The action was underwhelming and the comedy was limited to very few scenes.
