Well, they can’t all be perfect. :(
I still enjoyed this a lot - especially certain scenes, which I won’t spoil here. But unfortunately this one suffers from pacing issues and a very weak second act. I’m happy that this did so well commercially though, as without it we’d probably never have the Bong Joon-ho we know today. And hey, I still prefer it to Okja.
