Nothing new, but presented in a cool and humorous fashion ...
19 January 2003 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

For everyone who's experienced in Korean cinema, "Family - Action Vs. Love" will not bring anything new. It is however a very entertaining film about two young gangsters who take over the city of Incheon only to run into problems with a little brothel ...

The action is as raw as usual in Korean cinema, but it is mixed with scenes of (good) comedy. Also, the director took a rather flashy approach in filming: The colors look bright (especially the reds) and give the scenes a cartoony style - but there's still enough blood and fist fighting to please the more brawny viewer.

Acting wise, Sin-Hye Hwang stands out as the owner of the brothel. It's nice to see women who stand up against the men (like in "My Wife is a Gangster") and Hwang definitely commands the scenes believably. Her counterpart Min-jong Kim (of "This Is Law") holds his coolness against her and together, Kim and Hwang make a strong couple - and a good pair of opponents.

Content-wise, there's not much to find in "Family". But it's well acted, well directed and fun to watch. I'd rate it

7/10
