Okja – Movie Review


For 10 years, Mija has been the overseer and steady sidekick to Okja – a gigantic creature and a great companion – at her home in the mountains of South Korea.

Until Lucy Mirando, CEO of Mirando Corporation, takes Okja to New York, fixated on huge plans for Mija’s dearest companion.

Mija sets out a save mission, yet her officially overwhelming excursion rapidly turns out to be more annoying when she runs into several entrepreneurs and purchasers, each to control Okja.

While all Mija desires to do is bring her companion home, the impact and dramatization of her changed life lead the bond amongst man and creature, and eventually crafts the vision of the world that tends to the creature inside every one of us.



a startling adventure in which a young lady tries to spare her unusual pet from a terrible destiny, telling the story through industrialist substance and her human motivation.

Animal activism apart, Okja is different but cherished like any other pet by Mija. They take walks, go fishing and every activity that cultivates an evident sentiment towards someone of your family.

Wanting to go beyond the same romantic boring movie that comes out every other week, Okja rotates that feeling around and those in corporations and governmental issues, or uses, to the life of little Mija.

The movie arises in trying to communicate some guilt to the ways human treat animals to eat. it is not a lesson, provided that this creature point of view is what possess the driven course of a perfect movie.

Adolescents who might see Okja will relate at any time in their past lives if they ever had a pet. The fear of loss and blame is a subtle message throughout the story in exceptional elegance.

Okja is a South Korean and American creation for families wanting to appreciate the tale and its message. with their creature under attack, it attempts to leave the meat business look after the population opinion towards animal treatment in their industry.


Ahn Seo-hyun, who plays Mija, is totally into her role, captivating us along the film’s two-hour running time.

Fails as an insightful parody of the meat industry due to its self-discipline and assurance, but wins in providing the idea of a heavenly world which partnership between a Goliath pig and a young lady. That alone cuts its potential viewers in half.

The epic voyage of Mija is to be considered entertainment, although intense and delightfully rural. It’s no war against the pork business. In any case, the third act could fit in a Spielberg moment containing the desire for the grotesque locked away in a heavenly masqueraded story about humankind selfishness.

Attempt to see Okja in theaters, it’s epic and worth its running time. It guides you by the hand along the set roads of Seoul after the introduction and into the life a lovely Korean mountainside where the youthful Mija and her super-pig, Okja, grow their interesting kinship. Eventually ending up in New York City, recognizing Mija’s adoration for her pet.

Okja isn’t a motion picture for kids, but charming and endearing amidst comic exhibitions and a beautiful friendship.
