MIND-BLOWN , Rating of 7 is injustice. deserves 9+
I've been on a Korean movie spree recently , first The Memories of a Murder , then Mother, Old boy and Now This(which to me is the best) . The Plot is solid and éven with its 2+ hour length the Movie's pace doesn't drop for a minute. The characters and their actions/motives are Pretty well sketched out. The only thing I didn't really get completely was the equation between the detective and the scientist woman ,exactly what kind of historythey shared.
This is the director's first Movie, and looking at IMDb profile, I cant see any other movies credit to him in the near future.This kind of a movie deserves a Sequel , specially since the ending pointed towards one.
