WOW! This is the way every crime thriller should be made!
I came to this without real expectations first five minutes I was lost and uninterested, ten minutes warming up. Suddenly, I felt like being part of the film, of the team, (the good guys), following the robbers and "Shadow" from the edge of my seat, and all this without CGI involved! Catching the bad guys hasn't been so much entertainment for me in a little while and the characters do not scream their lungs out, or run through the streets knocking everyone else down, on the contrary they act as discreet as a surveillance team should in real life.
"Cold Eyes" is a movie that delivers, and the action is not over the top, so it may be unsatisfying for Hollywood standards, but what it lacks in explosions and heart pounding chases, fulfill with characters and situations that we care,so, if you like good thriller with some action just sit and enjoy this Korean Movie!
