Popcorn Culture - Review: Space Sweepers
Fashioned after sci-fi landmarks such as Cowboy Bebop and inspired by cult favorites like Firefly, Space Sweepers is considered K-Cinema's first big space opera. In this episode, we join the ragtag crew on Victory, a spaceship tasked with, as the name implies, cleaning debris from space... only to stumble across a 7-year-old girl in a crashed space shuttle. We chat about what Space Sweepers means to Korean cinema, how the movie uses multiple sci-fi tropes in an attempt to create something fresh, as well as the deeper social commentary that it shares with many other Korean films.
