ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Pulgasari

Uncle Kim's simplistic views of capitalism make loud echoes in this kaiju movie with a confusing agenda. The farmers are the people, and the king has them starving to them. Pulgasari is capitalism gone wild, eating all the metal he can find. So, maybe the real message from Uncle Kim was that the remedy to the nort korean commie hell would be even worse. The toho talent bring the best moments in the film.
