      "Castaway On the Moon is a romantic comedy film, not an adventure. Though there is some adventure within the film, according to its Wikipedia page, it should not be considered to be 'in for a penny, in for a pound." This isn't a good suggestion. It's worth a watch, but is shouldn't be a suggestion in this topic."

      "IMDB categorizes Castaway on the Moon as drama/romance. This is not to say that there cannot be adventure in there as well, but I cannot speak for this. This film was suggested for a reason, so I will say that it is an acceptable solution to the topic."

      "Train to Busan is a zombie movie where people are trapped on a train going through South Korea during a zombie outbreak. If you are into zombie movies then maybe this is your style. I am not a fan and I think the whole zombie thing has be overdone to the tenth power. There is absolutely zero chance I would say this fits the topic, but it is surely a mater of personal taste."

      "I love this movie. I bought it with English sub-titles rather than dubbed over in English because I would rather read the words than to have the lips moving out of sync. This is about a father whose daughter gets kidnapped by a mutated fish monster. The father and his brother and sister, along with the grandfather are doing everything in their power to find the little girl while trying to stay out of the hands of a biological unit that believes they have a virus. The movie is funny and dim-witted, but it can make one anxious at times and sad at other times but mostly great to be alive. I've watched it maybe five or six times now. And each time, it's just as good to me as it was the first time."

      "I like to watch foreign cinema, especially Korean cinema. Some masterpieces have come out of their film industry in the past few years. That said, I did not enjoy The Host at all. It was too focused on the action and not enough on the characterization of the people in the movie, which I'm always very interested in."

      "I like to watch foreign language movies. The Good, the Bad, and the Weird, is a Korean western but it's not that great of an adventure movie. The shootouts are okay but the rest of the movie is pretty bland in comparison with American adventure movies. I will search out better Korean movies to get my action satisfaction."

This is your typical "child with their pet" movie with some really interesting twists. An Seo Hyun is a wonderful discovery as Mija who will stop at nothing to save her best friend. Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal costar giving it star power. A truly heartwarming tale that I highly recommend."

I love foreign movies as a general genre, but this isn't something I'd rewatch. The acting is fine and the quality of the movie (cinematography) is also alright. But as far as appealing to me like a movie should, it just doesn't."

While there is not a lot of action, when there is action it is spellbinding. The plot and the cinematography is incredible. It is definitely a thrilling adventure with violence and crime."
