The Departed meets Godfather with a good dose of swagger.
7 March 2013 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

Korean cinema has matured immensely over the past decade and 2013 has already seen The Berlin File which I believe would show quite well overseas. New World is perhaps a more domestically oriented movie that would be enjoyed more by those who understand Korean culture, however the casual movie-goer will definitely not be let down.

Take The Departed (Infernal Affairs) and Godfather, mix it in a blender, add a dash of Korean gangster and you've got a slick thriller that offers a bit of the brutal violence Korean cinema is known for as well as some humor. While not as polished as the Berlin File, it's arguably a better movie when it comes to plot.

All in all, it looks like a great start to the year for Korean movies.
