Mr. & Mrs. Smith for South Koreans
2 August 2012 | by (Chicoutimi, Canada) – See all my reviews

"7th Grade Civil Servant" is a quite entertaining action comedy movie with some curious spy flick passages and a romantic love story. A female agent loses her boyfriend because she can't tell him the truth about her real job as a special agent. Three years after, the two heartbroken and unique characters meet again. The boyfriend still doesn't know anything about his big love's career and has become a special agent for a different section of the state. His girlfriend realizes quickly that he is now also lying to her but she's emotionally furious and blind for the truth. In a case involving the transfer of a deadly virus from a scientist to a gang of Russian criminals, they have to figth against each other and sometimes work together without knowing it which leads to many hilarious sequences until the final revelations.

By only reading my introduction, you can easily see what this film is worth. The movie's two biggest flaws are that the story is nothing really new at all and heavily predictable at some points and that many comedy moments get a little bit too repetitive and silly from time to time.

On the positive side, we have two convincing main actors with the beautiful, hyperactive and tough Ahn Soo-Ji that is incarnated by Kim Ha-Neul and a clumsy, courageous and naive Lee Jae-joon that is performed by Kang Ji-Hwan. They have a good chemistry and perform very well together, both in the harsh and the romantic parts. The supporting actors are also very funny and only the main villains remain a little bit faceless.

The slapstick moments in this movie are rather comparable to the Japanese and Hongkong cinema of the eighties and nineties and fail to have the same unique brand of brilliance as recent South Korean flicks as "Save The Green Planet!" for example. Sometimes you rather feel as if you were in a Jackie Chan flick. If you like this kind of more accessible Asian humour, you will really feel at home with this flick but I think that there's a little bit too much comedy in it against its own good. The movie could be more unique and lacks of something really outstanding.

It's though a very entertaining, light-hearted and sympathetic flick that is worth a watch but in the end nothing more than a good average flick with solid comedy moments and average action scenes that are saved by a very good acting.
