Naked Gun+Spies+Modern Korean Film+1970s Style Action=Awesome
31 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1946, Dachimawa Lee is a super cool spy in the vein of Austin Powers who finds himself on a mission to recover a golden Buddha statue with the names of all the Korean secret agents. Along the way, things prove to be not what they seem, and he is forced to unravel a conspiracy.

Basic plot, which is fine. The movie runs at an hour an a half, and is more about the humor, which is straight out of The Naked Gun, the action, the parody of spy movies and Korean entertainment, and the really fantastic editing and music that is straight out of a 70s action flick.

The movie is slick and at least worth a few laughs if you share the humor.
