Song Joong Ki and Kim Tae Ri’s Sci-fi Movie Space Sweepers Debuts on Netflix with Positive Critic Reviews

Whew, I didn’t realize I was holding my breath but I totally was lol! I want Space Sweepers (Spaceship Victory) to be good because I want to watch a good movie, I hope male lead Song Joong Ki returns to form with a successful project after the mega disappointment that was Arthdal Chronicles, and because it’s a win for all of Chungmuro to have its first big budget space movie succeed. The movie premiered on Netflix this Friday February 5th and the first reviews in from all the major reviewers that cover Neflix have been solid to strong positive, lauding the movies family heart and swashbuckling energy. It’s compared to Guardians of the Galaxy and Cowboy Bebop so pretty complimentary to be in the same vicinity of those popular flicks. I also thought Neflix did a great job promoting the film as it took up my entire landing page when I logged onto Netlix last night. Despite not getting a theatrical run, this movie may end up reaching a wider world audience with Netflix in the long run.
