Reasonably competent until atrocious finale...
19 July 2008 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Flick was reasonably competent until an absolutely disastrous final 10 minutes (actually the final 10 minutes felt more like an hour, and the music, dear lord the music...)

NO MERCY FOR THE RUDE starts out as a confident, fast-talking, self-referential black comedy.. with what would seem like some genuine potential.. Although not terribly original at all, the movie has a charm which so many Korean movies share. Unfortunately, repetition sets in around midway.

Ha-kyun Shin, so great in films like SAVE THE GREEN PLANET and MURDER, TAKE ONE is more than capable of carrying a film, and does not disappoint here either. His character was eerily reminiscent of the actor's role in SYMPATHY FOR MR VENGEANCE, in which he also suffers from a disability of one of the senses. Oddly enough, the love interest also seems to resemble the anarchist-chick from SYMPATHY.. anyhow, similarities between the two films end there.

Ultimately, the movie thinks it's smarter than it actually is. The snarky voice-over, although initially endearing, eventually begins to grate. All said, i'd have given the movie a respectable 6/10, but that would have been before i suffered through the atrocious ending. Only in Korea can emotional melodrama become so pandering and drawn-out (well, on second thought there's always Bollywood)

5/10
