If this movie had been made in Hollywood it would swallow up all the Oscar buzz for the year., 17 September 2013
Author: Guacamole_Bandit from New York

There's nothing more to say in order to recommend it, but IMDb requires me to so here goes.

If this were made in Hollywood, we wouldn't even be calling it Korean Godfather or Korean Infernal Affairs or a cross between the two. It is its own beast and excels at the most fundamental aspects of film-making in a way even the aforementioned films weren't always able to.

It's not perfect, I'd give it a 8.5 out or 9 out of 10 if I really wanted to be critical but it manages to carve out a place for itself in one of cinema's deepest genres. We haven't seen this kind of heavily character drama driven take on the genre before (and lucky for us, it was done so well!).
