It could have been better
13 June 2011 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

I have seen many movies having Song Kang-ho. In fact, I am a very big fan of Song Kang-ho. This movie once again impress me with the brilliant acting of his.

First of all, I would like to say the plot is not very serious. If you are looking for a crime movie with a lot of genius fighting, then this one is not for you. It is just about the ordinary life of a gangster, who is trying hard to be good at his job and take good care of his family at the same time.

Song Kang-ho is definitely a great actor. (In fact, to me, he is the greatest) His acting is so believable that sometimes I feel like watching my own dad on the screen. He portraits exactly the image of a husband who is always being nagged by his wife, a father who cares a lot about his teenage daughter but unable to understand her teenage mind, and a gangster who leads many boys, always ready to fight anyone getting in their business. In my opinion, seeing him is enough to keep your eyes on the screen all the time, however bad the plot is.

But that doesn't mean this is a bad plot. Actually, it's quite a good one. It is hilarious, at many moments. It is also emotional and touching. And it even has some violence and bloody scenes in addition to it. I especially like the ending. It will surely bring you the sympathy with In-goo and you will feel greatly pity and sorry for him.

I believe the movie would be more interesting if the working life of In-goo was more serious and violence. After all, he is a gangster, right? Not a memorable movie but quite an entertaining one. I wouldn't recommend it to you until you have seen other movies having Song Kang-ho in like JSA, The Host, Memories of Murder,...
