Storyline

A serial killer targeting elementary school students is on the loose. When the most probable suspect dies and the case looks like it's reached a dead end, police brass decide to create a killer - and anyone will do. Though Detective CHOI boasts an incredible number of arrests over his career his rank never showed it. Deciding this is his last chance for professional redemption, he makes a deal with JANG, who he has been investigating, and together they decide to set up an existing suspect as the murderer. The only hurdle in their plan is public prosecutor JOO, who takes on the case and who had been involved in a deal with rival construction contractor KIM. When secret deals and back alley agreements start to come to light, it only serves to drag all of them deeper and deeper into a dark hole of questionable ethics and abuse of the law.

Far from drama, yet still manages to do it.
30 June 2013 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I decided to review this title, because of the other reviewers who did not give the film what it deserves.

As someone said: this is a crime film, without clearly "good" or "bad" characters. Sometimes it's a bit hard to follow the plot, but I don't think it's a problem. When you finish watching the movie, all will be clear.

The movie is gripping, ruthless and satirical. There are some very funny moments and one will find cynicism in almost EVERY SCENE. Modern grotesque, great plot and AMAZING performances from the leads are the pros of this film. You will most likely be gutted by both the complexity and "charisma" of those 3 main characters.

Pay attention to why is this movie titled: "The Unjust".

I absolutely recommend this to everyone. Though it lacks the "tricks" of cinematography, it's still very stylish in plot and powerful in execution. Pure entertainment.
