This movie rated high for me because it has all of the great detective movie qualities. An evil killer played by Cho Seung-woo and two detectives (Yeom Jeong-a and Jee Jin-hee) who are on the tail of his copycat killer. Much like the American styled Lethal Weapon, there is comedy thrown in with this very serious story. Jee Jin-hee's character is similar to the character played by Mel Gibson in that he is emotionally charged, sarcastically humorous with his tough guy antics, and ruggedly good looking. Yeom Jeong-a plays the very serious and emotionally guarded female detective trying to do her job in a male dominated career and with the loss of her lover still tearing at her heart strings. As these two detectives get closer to the copycat they also find a friendship growing between them. Both have tragic tales to tell and when they do it becomes apparent that these killings are close to home for both of them. Cho-Seung-woo plays evil in a very calm creepiness. He is much like the American Hannibal Lecter. As much as you want to dislike his character for his crimes, it's easy to become entranced by his charisma. Another character that seems to be the off beat detective that everyone enjoys to have around is Detective Park (Ji-ru Sung). He plays the true comedian in the bunch. He is the one most likely to fall down on the job, and boy, does he ever! Detective Park is the only one who seems to understand both Detective Kang and Detective Kim. This movie not only has realistic gory scenes, but a great musical score that sets the tone for this intriguing thriller. Being a fan of horror and mystery, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie so much I had to buy it!
