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.

Looks like something different, but just your usual gangster tripe
15 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

No.3 is a Korean production, and presents itself as some kind of gangster spoof, when it in fact turns out to be nothing more than your usual edgy, grey Oriental crime film. It looked a bit of a curious offering to start with, and maybe I had looked a bit too closely into the trade descriptions on the title a bit. And to be fair, it's not bad as a typical sort of Western crime flick. But I'm no expert in this sort of field and maybe there's better types of film out there you could be watching. **
