Storyline

With just a knife in his hand, Tae-ju has been a gangster for 15 years. The number three man in the Dogang Family, every day, Tae-ju lives by the ruthless determination to become 'number one in the family.' He studies foreign languages in his spare time in preparation for the internationalization of organized crime but things are not going his way. Presently, he is being twisted inside out by Jae-chul, the simple-minded number two man who resolves everything by wielding an ashtray, and Dongpal Ma, a gangster prosecutor who lives in the same apartment complex and picks a fight every which way Tae-ju turns.

Perhaps not quite what one might expect. Almost worth seeing.
28 April 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film did not turn out quite how I had initially expected, a black comedy - this was a little disappointing, though it was still amusing in parts, so that made up for it. There is more violence than humour, though it becomes a little more slapstick as the film progresses.

An amusing and very unexpected conclusion. Though the absurdity of the entire situation throughout is perhaps not appreciated fully, perhaps a little is lost in the translation?
