a stylish action/drama
30 September 2000 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. Everything in this movie was good. The cinematography, which seems influenced by Wong Kar Wai, was beautiful and action scenes were very cool. Woo-Sung Jung performs a charismatic but naive loner very well. I'm sure girls went crazy while seeing this movie. Chang-Jung Lim's funny and realistic performance makes this film less dark and more delightful. This film is based on a famous comic book in Korea with a different ending. To me, the film seems more cartoonish, doesn't mean the film is bad.
