it looked so promising when the movie started, but gradually it fell apart like a messy chop suey. the screenplay was a clusterfxxk with so many scenes jammed together. the scenario was also a formulaic one, a typical corrupted cop, loyalty, betrayals, double cross, comrade partnership, money, dope storyline that went from clear to vague, smart to stupid. what can i say? there were moments that i couldn't help shouting: "are you serious?!", "WTF?!", "so easily to miss?" and so on. first we got a female cop got to pee during the surveillance job, then the culprit just appeared at that moment; then we got the ambush, then the traitor chief threw a coin to warn the guy; then during another surveillance, the detective went into the convenient store to buy some junk food, then the corrupted cop entered the store, and the cop just stooped to find some bread, then right at that moment the target paid and left, and at that moment, the other cop with fbi training was so conveniently slept in the car, then bang! then....turned out all the top dogs of police from the chief of police, the deputy chief, the lieutenant, the captain....all way down were all bad apples. this is so stupid and ridiculous to the extreme. what a mess! this is the evidence how bad this screenplay was written and how bad the movie was directed, and how all the good actors got to acted stupid by the stipulations of the stupid screenplay and the lousy director's guidance. korean cop movies are supposed to be one of the best in the world, on par to the french ones and almost turned superior to what Hollywood could have produced, but sadly, this s.i.u. (special investigation unit) was one bad apple in the bucket.
