A missing and stolen HandPhone creates this Korean thriller magic...
Yet another Korean thriller. Twists after twists. How simple the plot is?. A mobile (Hand Phone) which has some voyeur stuff gets lost and stolen. Then follows the cat and mouse chase. I enjoyed this - moves at a true Korean swift pace. I liked the twists that kept appearing. I liked the way "Tae-woong Eom" gets worked up - very realistic - you seem to side with him - and his helplessness with the thief. Actions are brutal and some scenes are masculine-violent. That was neatly done. The mother of all twists was rendered very smoothly at the last scene just before the closing credit and it was too shocking for me. They just handed that in the end - very heart wrenching but true Korean style. I give it 8 out of 10.
