Okja Storyline: For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja-a massive animal and an even bigger friend-at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija's dearest friend. With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja...while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home. Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises-the bond between man and animal-and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the...

Another distinctive film from Bong Joon-ho about wholesome values vs. society's self-interest
A teenage girl wants nothing more than to remain with her lifelong pet and companion – the super pig Okja – in Korean auteur Bong Joon- ho's latest film. Everything else is just stuff that gets in the way.

Bong delivers one of Netflix's better high profile original films in "Okja," a quirky yet topical yet big-hearted film. Similar to Bong's 2006 breakout film "The Host," a monster movie about a doltish dad who will do anything to rescue his daughter, "Okja" plays to family themes (a girl and her pet) but presents them through a mature, adult lens (corporate greed, environmentalism, genetic science).

So the context of "Okja" is complicated, but the story is quite simple and human. 14-year-old Mija (An Seo-hyun) has lived with her grandfather on a mountainside farm in South Korea for most of her life with Okja, a super pig gifted to the farm by Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) and the Mirando Corporation as part of a competition to develop the pigs as a non-GMO food source to help fight hunger. When the corporation and super pig judge Johnny Wilcox (Jake Gyllenhaal) come to collect, Okja is clearly the finest of the super pigs in the world, and they endeavor to take her to New York City. Mija follows them to Seoul and attempts to get her friend back, coming up against the corporation and a group of animal rights activists, all of which have different agendas for Okja.

Hilarious and deeply disturbing, violent but also quite warm, Bong has created another distinctive film that makes him one of the most interesting filmmakers that not enough people are talking about. The mixed bag of tones will certainly turn off viewers who aren't sure what to do with a film that doesn't fit in any one neatly labeled genre box, those with an open mind will appreciate the way he tells extremely accessible stories that address complicated themes.

Okja means a lot of things to a lot of people: friendship and stability to Mija; money, science and reputation to the Mirando Corporation; injustice and corporate greed to the animal liberation group; and affordable food to the masses. The plot is essentially these competing interests sorting themselves out.

Part of what makes "Okja" distinctive is the caricaturized supporting roles that make everything feel just a shade unusual. As she did in Bong's last film, "Snowpiercer," Swinton so effortlessly creates a wildly larger than life character portrait that simultaneously feels grounded in reality. Gyllenhaal, on the other hand, is infuriatingly grating as the eccentric loose cannon TV personality, but his character is a signal to the audience of how to look at and think of the world of the film.

Bong has such a specific perspective on society that comes through in way subtle and not in "Okja." He brilliantly whittles the story down to one pivotal moment at the end, and the outcome of all this chaos suggests he's neither pessimistic nor optimistic. Perhaps he would argue that it's not his business to come down one way or another, but simply to use a giant hippo-like pig to at least prove that our world is majorly – and maybe unnecessarily – complicated

A well made parable for the ethical treatment of animals
The best thing about this film is that it approaches the subject matter very well. While some can argue it's a little heavy-handed, I personally think it approaches the subject with a lot of nuances. This film isn't at all saying anything like 'Veganism is the only ethical way to live', not at all. In fact, the main character and her grandfather are deliberately shown to be catching fish and keeping chickens to eat.

Rather, this film is a condemnation of the way the meat industry has devolved into this awful hellscape. Near the end of the film, we are shown the truth about the Super Pig program and are shown an awful sight of electric fences keeping these large animals together in crowded and cramped spaces across acres of land.

As meat eaters, this is something that we're used to. We know that chickens, pigs and cattle are often kept in cramped spaces where all they can do is sit and eat until they die, but we distance ourselves from this idea, because meat tastes good, and it's convenient, and I don't necessarily think this film will convince everyone to become vegan (it will convince some, but not everyone), but what Okja does, that makes it such an effective parable, is that it lets us relate to Okja, see how smart of an animal she is. The film gives her a personality and a relationship, and we get to see how Mija and Okja relate to each other, that it's not just a master/owner relationship, but a genuine inter-species friendship. We see this relationship before we are shown the fields of animals, all like Okja, that are kept in these awful conditions.

So we end up asking 'Where is our meat coming from, and if I find out, am I willing to accept that?' I think this is a question worth answering for ourselves.

As for veganism, the film doesn't give them much slack either. The side characters from the Animal Liberation Front are very interesting, and the film gives those characters a surprising amount of moral ambiguity, where the crew are willing to bend their own code of ethics to serve a 'greater good', an action that does backfire for them in the end.

There is one particular joke in the film that gives a bit of evidence that the film isn't entirely 'pro-vegan'. One of the ALF members, when we first meet him, is fainting from hunger because he refuses to eat anything, including vegetables, because all food is sourced from exploitation, or something along those lines. The same character is later shown being offered a piece of Super Pig Jerkey, and takes a bite.

So in conclusion, this film is entirely worth watching wherever you can. It is a hard watch at times, but I think it's a film that will go down as one of Netflix's best original offerings.

Absurdist comedy with some terrible acting
OKJA is the latest film from Korean director Bong Joon Ho, a man who previously wowed us with his work on MEMORIES OF MURDER, THE HOST, and SNOWPIERCER. Sadly, this is by far the worst film I've seen from him, a heavy-handed moralising message movie that seems like an advert for PETA. The story features a cute Korean girl going on the run with her genetically modified giant pig Okja, while a cruel corporation tries to cut the beast up for sausages.

It's as simple as that, and very reminiscent of Hollywood and films like SHORT CIRCUIT at times. However, OKJA plays out as a zany comedy for the most part and it just isn't at all funny. It feels like a silly kid's film complete with fart and poo jokes and the like but there's swearing and violence throughout, so tonally it's all over the place. As usual, the Korean stars outclass their Western counterparts time and again. Tilda Swinton returns from SNOWPIERCER and is dreadful in a dual role, but Jake Gyllenhaal is even worse with his over-the-top turn and I cringed with embarrassment to see him like this. Shirley Henderson plays the same role she's been playing for decades while Paul Dano veers between creepy and comatose. THE WALKING DEAD's Steven Yuen is better, but he needed more screen time. The other problem I had with OKJA is that I didn't find the titular creature to be either endearing or convincing, despite the best efforts of the CGI animators.

A Heartwarming Story with Ambitious Commentary
"Okja" is the latest cinematic venture by Bong Joon Ho, distributed by none other than Netflix. Of all Bong Joon Ho's films that I've seen, I'd say that "Okja" is most in line with "The Host" (2006) in the sense that it balances a number of ideas and styles throughout its duration. However, I actually like "Okja" a bit more, as it feels far more polished.

I definitely recommend this movie to fans of this director, fans of sci-fi/allegorical films, or anyone who just likes an exciting, heartwarming tale. It's not a perfect movie, but it is good.

**Before I get into spoiler territory: I want to keep something in mind for viewers. This film will be easy to read out as an anti-corporatist, radical, pro-animal rights kind of gimmick. Though there's a good chance you'll see right through this, I want you to keep an eye out for the film's self-awareness in this regard and how it deconstructs this false dichotomy into a more complex, urgent, overarching question. I'm actually very pleased with how the film handled this topic, and I'll go into more detail below.

**From here on out there will be spoilers.

Before I get into the film's story and commentary, let's acknowledge that this film is beautiful. The direction and cinematography is constantly engaging and always stunning to look at. Throughout there are plenty of breathtaking wide shots, satisfying action sequences, and even a few genuinely unsettling moments. Even so, this results in a little bit of tonal inconsistency, though the direction is strong enough to make it a smooth experience.

The screenplay is written by Joon-ho Bong and Jon Ronson (presumably for the English segments), with the story credit going solely to Joon-ho Bong. The bilingual aspect of this film is actually quite pleasing, and it makes for a well-rounded experience. Seeing the cooperation of different cultures in the art of film here is delightful. Fundamentally, "Okja" is a heartwarming adventure of a girl and her friendly beast--but it's also more than that.

This film presents us with a big question that serves as an undercurrent throughout, and that question is: How do we sustain humanity? With over 7 billion people on the planet, and so many of them without food and resources, how do we feed ourselves? What must we sacrifice, and what solutions are unethical/unjustifiable? The film sets up a central dichotomy from here, quite cleverly interpreted through the third-party perspective of Okja and Mija. On the surface, the film's central antagonist is the Mirando corporation. Mirando genetically engineered the super-pigs in an attempt to efficiently combat the starving world, even if such ambitions were only a facade to make a profit. Opposite to Mirando is a small ensemble from the Animal Liberation Front, though they aren't always necessarily the protagonists. Within the ALF's ranks, there is still a degree of violence and deception, making them ironically similar to the Mirando Corporation. Furthermore, both parties neglect a fundamental aspect of a greater problem. The Mirando Corporation more obviously neglects the ethical implications of slaughtering genetically-engineered, unintentionally-intelligent livestock, while the ALF is neglecting the world's desperate shortage of food, solidifying the lack of solutions for either side (at least, solutions that won't get blood on their hands). It's a no-win-scenario, and the movie knows it. If "Okja" hasn't drawn any comparisons to "Soylent Green" yet, well this can be the first.

If the socio-political commentary content here feels like a stretch, the film still functions well on a story/character level. Bong Joon-ho takes steps to ensure that empathy is achieved with the characters, specifically for Mija and Okja. The scene early on in which Okja saves Mija from falling off the cliff works really well in doing this. We see not only Okja's ability to empathise here, but her ability to think and problem solve, driving the viewer to empathise with Okja as we would a human. Mija is shown caring for Okja as well, solidifying two emotionally agreeable protagonists in the film. This actually helps put the audience in the third-party perspective over the primary dichotomy.

The performances are easily the worst part of this movie. Not all of them are bad, but several of them are painfully cartoonish, especially Jake Gyllenhaal. I love you Jake, but that was a bit much. The rest of the supporting cast generally portray caricatures as well, even Tilda Swinton, the subdued Paul Dano, and Joon Bong-ho regular Hee- Bong Byun. To the contrary, Seo Hyun actually gives a fantastic job as Mija, and adds no small amount of heart to the film. She is not only an excellent young actor, but the highlight of the movie.

The CGI was better than I expected from Netflix, not that I've seen enough of this kind of thing from Netflix to have expectations in the first place. My point is, it's still fairly clear that Okja is computer-generated, but not distractingly so. The music is fun/serviceable, though not necessarily outstanding upon first listen. I would have liked something more memorable, but so long as it's not a distraction I won't count anything against it.

Though this isn't Joon Bong-ho's best in my opinion ("Snowpiercer" is my favorite), it's definitely a good film. If you can't appreciate it for its commentative ambitions, you should at the very least have fun with it.

Score: 8/10

Juvenile film with a strong anti-GMO message
An over-the-top film supporting the anti-GMO activists. The message against Monsanto is obvious. But how many in the audience will make the connection, especially in USA, where GMO foods are considered OK?

Tilda Swinton's "Cruella-like" role reminds one of Glenn Close in "101 Dalmations." Close was, of course, better. Swinton has a double role here, that Close never had.

Barring the message, the film is for a juvenile audience.

Inspirational
This movie lets you think about what is actually done to the animals in the world routinely without being noticed. In addition it lets you understands the pain and feelings of an animal which is in the food industry.The movie is truly impressing and well prepared to support animals and make a better world. Good job on the team

Not for me
When I saw the cute little pig thing displayed on the Netflix screen, I thought that I would give this one a try. I read all of the rave reviews, I've seen a few movies from the director, and thought why not. Then I watched it, and I figured out very quickly why not. Now, it's fair to point out that I'm not a vegan, I enjoy eating meat, and I'm very aware of what goes on inside a slaughterhouse. And, trust me, if you thought what was depicted on screen was vicious, you should check out you should check out something besides a work of fiction.

I think what really bothered me, besides the need to make genetically modified food "adorable", was the scene where the ALF leader beat the living tar out of the tech guy for lying. I didn't understand the "aw those poor animals" attitude, and then a "let's beat up people" attack on the public. I didn't like the way an F bomb was dropped every time someone ate meat, and I really didn't like how kid friendly the pigs were and how non-kid friendly the dialogue was.

I guess if this compelled one to stop eating meat, then I'd be glad that it made such an impression, but I guess then one would have to take in to consideration all the human cruelty that takes place on vegetable farms, all the underpaid brewers that clean beer barrels with corrosive chemicals, even all the chemicals that go in to flash freezing french fries, the world is a horrible place, and I saw this movie as pure, one sided propaganda.

for the love of animals - an epic watch
A movie that is going to awaken your inner animal love and it might turn you vegan. I mean you will definitely think about it.this movie shows what a human can do for love even if it's for an animal.you are going to get back any possible way. the natural landmarks in the movie are marvelous. A 2D animation of this story would have been so good and famous
2017-08-16
A must watch on Netflix
Definitely a must watch on Netflix. Good photography, interesting color grading and a costume design quite chic with Swinton's character. The script will make you think and even debate about the current meat industry. We find some doses of humour but i must admit that Okja's eyes and relationship with Mija warmed my heart.

Terrible miscalculation
A hodgepodge of talent wasted in such pointless ways that one can only marvel what pitch got the money to make this unfunny, overly long, boring manifest against GMO foods. Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal are totally unhinged which might be funny for small kids but this is not a kids' movie as it resorts to brutal violence several times.

Things are not made any better by the titular pig's teenage patron who (for unclear reasons) is played by a one-note Korean child actor with such monotonic obsession that her friendship with the pig only looks worrying.

If something positive is to be said about this misfire then it is that the pig is well animated and integrates with its surroundings seamlessly, but its design has no personality and cannot sustain sufficient feelings to care about its fate.
