Critic Reviews of "The Tunnel"VarietySeptember 06, 2016
A lean, enjoyable disaster story that happily spends more time focusing on character than spectacle, though visual effects are impressive.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 06, 2016
Infusing its nightmarish scenario with bracing doses of satirical humor, Tunnel is smarter and more sophisticated than most Hollywood attempts at the genre.Los Angeles TimesAugust 25, 2016
There's not enough story here to warrant the film's more than two-hour running time; 90 taut minutes tracking a week in the ruined tunnel would have sufficed. Still, it's a vivid and relatable tale.Seattle TimesAugust 25, 2016
[There's] a lot to juggle, and Kim handles it effectively while delivering, bottom line, a harrowing spectacle that makes one forget to breathe.Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comAugust 25, 2016
South Korean cinema contributed the summer's best action film with Train to Busan, a kinetic kick of a zombie thriller. Tunnel doesn't quite do the same for the disaster genre, but it's a well-made, suspenseful and surprisingly moving twist on a formula.South China Morning PostMarch 07, 2017
A thoroughly engaging drama that is peppered with both improbably dark humour and pungent attempts at social commentary.Concrete PlaygroundDecember 15, 2016
Tunnel succeeds on three fronts: making its life-or-death scenario feel urgent and immediate, fleshing out its characters and garnering a genuine emotional impact.Flicks.co.nzSeptember 01, 2016
Simultaneously smart and populist viewing, and a great example of the genre.Fort Worth WeeklySeptember 01, 2016
Subtlety clearly isn't a forte for writer-director Kim Seong-hoon, whose last film was the cop thriller A Hard Day. Then again, Kim's not after subtlety here. He's making an angry polemic against the state of his nation.Film Journal InternationalAugust 29, 2016
Most disaster epics, even the silliest, manage to entertain, as does this one, but with intelligence and a compassionate focus on the feelings of the people most affected.Examiner.comAugust 27, 2016
You absolutely devour Jung-soo's journey in Tunnel. Tunnel is one of the most compassionate films of the year with a horrifically executed disaster and an emotional powerhouse odyssey overall.NYC Movie GuruAugust 26, 2016
If only Hollywood's blockbusters could be even half as gripping, smart and emotionally engrossing as Tunnel!
