Sudden and unexpected impact
I don't know what to say, I've just finished watching the movie. It's not a sophisticated or a sci-fi, it's not just entertaining, its genera can't be clearly categorized for me, and it's unimportant I guess. Although there are many exaggerating scenes which occur exactly when you don't expect, but they don't seem unreal to you (at least to me). The roller-coaster of feelings and mood is uncomfortable at first, till you get the unique ambiance of this picture. I've been always feel for animals and have a pet almost all my life, right now my cat is my daughter (not like my daughter) she is my daughter, and doesn't matter cat, dog, bird ... But meanwhile I've been eating meat all my life, can't leave without it. Don't know what is it about "Okja", but I cried like never before. Since I hate saying something that I can't keep, I'm not going to say I'm a vegetarian from this moment. But I say I am really in trouble and will seriously think it over. We, without a doubt, are the worst creatures that have walked on this planet, and we are getting poor on any given aspect... I can't imagine this planet in 100 years from now, but I'm glad that I won't be seeing that picture.

A must see film
A stunning film. I was told that it is hard to get a strong voice about animals made into a film. Hollywood doesn't want to touch it. Well Hollywood might be afraid of it but when you have Brad Pitt, a strong advocate for veganism and animal welfare, producing the film and a pariah and new power player on the block like Netflix willing to distribute, then you get a film like Okja made. Then you add a terrific international cast like Paul Dano, Steven Yuen, Tilda Swinton and the star of the movie, Seo-Hyun Ahn plus a superstar Korean director like Joon-ho Bong and you have one hell of a film. For those who don't know, Bong directed the highest grossing South Korean movie of all time, The Host and he also did the well received Snowpiercer. Make no mistake about it, this film has a strong representation behind and in front of the camera. And this is a film that is not only a strong voice, but it is one that is needed.

I'm a strong advocate for animal welfare and this film is up there as one of the best fictional films I've ever seen about the topic. You have a giant corporation that has made genetically modified super pigs. These pigs have grown to be massive animals, perhaps twenty times the size of normal pigs. They send these pigs off to live in all different corners of the world and their plan is to ten years later see which pig is the best and then parade him in New York city as part of a promotion to buy this corporation's new meat. Okja lives with Mija on her tiny farm in South Korea. They have a vast land where Okja and Mija have formed a bond. The corporation comes by, takes Okja and plans to kill him and all the other super pigs in a few days.

Enter the ALF which plans on saving Okja.

There's many strengths of the film. I'll just mention a few of them. The cast is brilliant. I enjoyed Steven Yuen especially. He has a screen presence, even when he was on the Walking Dead, you could feel it. He is very strong here. Paul Dano is excellent as well and Tilda Swinton might be the best actress alive who can play a bitch, someone you just despise. Ahn is priceless as the young girl and she sells the relationship with Okja.

But an animal welfare movie about pigs being sent to slaughter wouldn't be complete without the horrors that must be shown. There are very disturbing abattoir scenes and it's quite graphic. There's also a fair bit of animal mistreatment and for someone like me, someone who strongly advocates animal welfare, these scenes were very tough to watch. But they were necessary and they add to the overall tone of the movie.

Okja is perhaps the best film I've seen this year. It does everything right and it will probably help me become a vegan instead of just vegetarian. I applaud Netflix for getting this film made.

10/10

No one wants to eat pets, we all agree. Say more.
Saw Okja. Such a predictable story line and such a missed opportunity to go beyond basic guilt tripping. No one wants to eat pets. Say more. Jake Gyllenhall would've not been in the movie and no one would notice. Tilda Swinton's caricature speaks exactly what you think she will. There is so much to say on the topic of how meat industries work and Bong said nothing we don't know. Not much to admire in the movie other than Annie's song sequence. Even that okay-ish sequence seems out of place in an otherwise bland movie. Good movie for kids I guess. They'll buy them Okja toys. Wasted opportunity.

Thoughtful movie.
This movie was one of the better. It has a story that is a reminder how we as humans try to change the nature for our own benefits. Both in money and food. This is a story about a creature and her human friend. A creature that is a mix of a hippo, pig and a dog. The story shows how we as human tries to change things to the better but at our animals cost. Bigger, better and fast growing creatures. It also shows our handling of the creatures, how they are cramped up in small spaces, confused, afraid and also helpless. This movie should be a reminder for us to care about the animals in a human way and let them live as good as possible and also give them care before they end up as hour food. The movie is technical good and picture, songs are perfect. So nice movie with a important message.

Okja is OK!
The cast, acting performances, the setting, the presentation, photography - everything is really, really good. I like the style of Joon-ho Bong a lot (Snowpiercer, The Host.. great movies!).

However, i felt the story was quite mediocre. It's basically a girl loves a sort of "endangered" animal story, not really original or new/fresh.

Also i'm not so fond of the chosen "design" of Okja / the Superpigs, i felt they could have looked better, either more tasty or more scary/weird. :)

Overall, a entertaining, very specially presented sort of child movie made for adults. Okja is OK! Ja.

Did not live up to my expectations
I'm a huge fan of Netflix originals and after watching the trailer for this movie, I had high expectations. About half way through it, I considered turning it off. This idea had so much potential to be an incredible film, but there are simply too many elements that dragged it down to below average. I found myself cringing at the over dramatic dialogue, especially at that of Jake Gyllenhaal, who I'd previously considered one of my favorite actors. The characters are mediocre at best and most of them are underdeveloped. The plot was incredibly unoriginal to the point where I just wasn't interested in watching anymore. The only savior of this movie was Ahn Seo-hyun, who plays the main character beautifully.

Uneven, but ambitious and moving
"Snowpiercer" is one of my favorite films of the past five years or so, so when I saw that Bong Joon Ho's latest was available on Netflix, I pounced on it. This film is the most family-friendly of his that I've seen so far (probably even more so than "The Host"), and it's also his sweetest.

The plot: In an effort to combat the impending food shortage brought on by overpopulation, the sinister Mirando Corporation (let by the always-welcome Tilda Swinton) genetically engineers a race of superpigs who require few resources to raise, then ships 26 of them out to farms all over the world as part of a contest to see who can raise the healthiest one. Ten years later, little Mija (Seo-Hyeon Ahn), who has grown up with the eponymously-named superpig as a pet and perhaps even friend, learns from her grandfather that they have to send it back to America to be slaughtered. She decides to do something about it.

"Okja" mixes lowbrow humor, chase scenes, social commentary, and a few elements of outright horror. It's not entirely successful. Some side characters and subplots seem half-baked, but the film deserves immense credit for sidestepping many of the clichés and pitfalls that plague films that deal with young protagonists having adventures and teaching adults lessons in the process. Along the way, Mija meets the Animal Liberation Front, a well-meaning but naive animal rights organization who both helps and hinders her along the way. Their leader is played by Paul Dano, another actor I've enjoyed in just about everything I've ever seen him in.

This film is not entirely happy, nor is it entirely cynical. It's about as hopeful as it can be in telling the story of one girl and a couple of do-gooders who try to take down a gigantic corporation. I recommend this film to anyone who is looking for something different. It definitely isn't perfect, but it will stick with you. Oh, and I haven't even mentioned Jake Gyllenhaal as a manic zoologist/nature show host. He's pretty funny, too.

Okja, a whole new look on livestock
I have never cried so much, after watching Okja it really opened my eyes to what really happens to livestock in the world. If you are an animal lover i suggest you watch this. If you want to know the reason why a lot of people are vegan you should watch this. After watching this I decided to cut back on meat slowly until i completely cut it off. It's an inspiration, thank you so much to the creators.

By far the BEST and most refreshing film I've seem from this Country in years! Aside from all the other reasons to love Netflix, the brilliant folks in charge of original programming there should have they're pay doubled last year...! This flick should be Mandatory Viewing!
