Thoughts on Natural City

-In an Uncanny Valley future, two cops who track down renegade cyborgs come at odds when one of them (Yoo Ji-tae) falls in love with his 'doll' cyborg. With it/her about to expire, he searches through black market means a way to transfer her mind into a human body, finding an orphaned prostitute/fortune teller (Lee Jae-eun).

-Confusing and muddled and disorganized cyberpunk. Nothing is bothered to be explained, which can sometimes be good, but here it's just aggravating.

-Performances: action movie calibre.

-Fine cinematography, has too much of a nineties-feel.

-Bloody, violent cyborg-on-human fights (hardly fair).
