A chase film in which cops try to catch a master of disguise. This is a film as much about the joy of filmmaking as it is about a deadly pursuit. Written by NDNF

User Reviews

A good alternative to some of the more tired holiday films still lingering at the box office.
17 January 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is an enjoyable, fast-paced action movie that's shot in a frenetic style that almost reminded me of "Run Lola Run". Joong-Hoon Park stars as Woo - the likeable yet violent, dopey yet determined Inchon detective who organizes a manhunt of a cold-blooded killer. The story is routine, yet the visuals and the characters in it are wonderful. Some of the images are beautiful (like the wait leading up to the murder at the beginning of the movie, and the snowstorm later on, and especially the fight during the rainstorm), some are hilarious (such as Woo's brawl with Meathead).

The only time the movie seemed to flag for me was when Woo's partner develops a conscience after killing a suspect in self-defense.
