8 December 2005 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't want to tell negative on this movie but one thing- total package of various narratives and clichés!! The name of the hero, a street-wise detective- Lee Dae-Ro- is a semantic joke in Korean which means "like this". So the title has dual meaning: Det. Lee can't die and/or I cannot die like this.

As this title implicates, the hero Det. Lee is trying to die with his pocket full in order to inherit his daughter some posthumous fortune. However, things go crazy and his every effort to be "dead good" turns "good deed" for law enforcement. According to this basic plot, the movie itself appears honky-tonk comedy while some melodramatic elements and tragic cliché embroider the periphery of its plot.

Unsympathetic setting of story is just tattered with an unorganized mixture of five emotional elements: Joy, Sorrow, Rage, Happiness, and Love. In overall, this movie made serious mistake to turn the whole sequence of plot upside-down at the final moment. After watching this movie, nobody will remember what was going on with Det. Lee, and how his endeavor to die with money was progressed. Totally a time-killing kaleidoscope of human emotional extravaganza for one and half hour.
