Overlong melodrama with unlikeable characters
18 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've been a fan of Korean movies for many years now, and they have managed to produce some of the best movies I've seen. The distributors of this movie managed to build lot of excitement for it but it didn't live up to the hype. The name of the movie(destiny/Fate) basically tells us that these characters are stuck in a situation which they have little power over. It Begins well with nice fighting scene but manages to dwindle into a overlong melodrama. It would have helped the movie if the characters were likable, but all of them are unlikable and uninteresting. The acting isn't that bad, so i must put the blame on the writers and the director. The action scenes after the first one, are all the same and quite boring. So all in all I was very disappointed with this flick. :(
