Korean Godfather, yes that good!
7 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I normally go see Korean movies for the action pack scenes, and some good acting on occasion. This movie took me completely off guard, the screenplay and storytelling are awesome. The actors are stupendous, the plot is unbelievable good, and when the movie unfolds the Machiavellian story starts to unwind every little hidden piece. The action scenes are good as expected, but that is not really what stands out in this movie, the real deal is the actors depth in portraying a story to make this movie brilliant. Please check this movie out, and see it through till the amazing end parts.

PS: my 10 is saved for the Godfather masterpiece ;-)
