The movie is an inspiring story of a law-abiding conservative man's courageous fight against the tyranny of the judicial system of his country (South Korea). Some may see it as an idealization of a man's vice, but revolution always comes when such people stand against oppression.
The movie's tagline, "Law Abiding Accused vs Law Abusing Judges", is quite apt. In a country where judges are not elected, and are appointed based on the results of a common law exam (regardless of formal education), there's no participation of the public at all, even as a jury. Such a state makes it vulnerable to corruption and mistrust.
The movie's lead character, Kim Kyung-Ho (actual, Myung-Ho), is defined quite well, and is portrayed brilliantly by Sung-kee Ahn. The remaining characters are interesting as well, and keep the story going.
There isn't a single dull moment. Both the initial and the main cases are quite intriguing.
