Better than decent, watchable more than once
8 October 2015 | by (syria) – See all my reviews

(i didn't watch the first movie nor i've read the original comic) If you an overseas watcher u're not gonna appreciate the repetitive scenes of an unknown game with the same way of cheating without realizing who or how they're cheating, but the directing saves it for you, it's has an attractive way of showing and moving between plot points very smoothly and that's thanks to the excellent cinematography which is in my opinion the winner in this movie, saying that, i have to mention that the movie is more than watchable (talking from a person who isn't a fan of the korean cinema)

It's not Oceans 11 but a gambling movies fan myself, i grew to consider this movie one of the fine ones, it has its problems when comparing it to global cinema, but it's more than decent and a very good gambling movie. i was tuned in all the movie long.

The cast is superb, usually while watching a korean film there's some kind of secondary characters that u start to wonder what they're there for, but this movie has a very good if not great line of cast, the protagonist (TOP) didn't have much special qualities to his personality but he def has his moments, playing the honest-smart-naive protagonist with some life threatening scenes where he exceeded my expectations (as a fan too), the female lead (Se-Kyung Shin) didn't have much to say thru out the movie as an actress, but her character doesn't require any, not necessarily bad, but let's just say it's a male protagonist movie (with the lacking of some expressions when it's needed), the rest of the cast was more than excellent, even with the characters that doesn't require much they've added to their characters a lot.

The plot has its holes, i didn't appreciate the pacing of the movie which i find it kind of messy and in-continuous, with a lot of 'YOU STILL ALIVE ?' kind of moments which makes the viewer a bit helpless, not to mention the parts cutting of the movie as in we don't see how the characters exactly got to where they are in such a short time, it's not a plot hole more like the directer being lazy, a simple hint of the way would be enough, i can't comment much on the story because i don't know if it's from the movie or the comic, i came to appreciate the good script and the pace of the events more than the pace of the sequences, It's definitely a movie that is worth watching more than once if you're one of those people who don't mind repeating movies, because especially when it comes to gambling movies you gotta stay focused, it took me about 3 watches to realize what exactly was going on in Oceans 11, and i wouldn't mind watching Tazza again to pick up everything i left off.

Quick review as a fan of the actor Choi Seunghyun : am not interested in the korean cinema as i mentioned earlier, obviously i watched this one because of TOP, which thru out the movie i started to forget that he's in it, he was so much into character it made me look at the protagonist and not at TOP, he served better than good, left me in awe.

One thing i didn't come to appreciate is some /if not most/ reviews come to mention TOP as the protagonist who has a lot of fangirls who are watching the movie because of him, ignoring reviewing his role and his skills as an actor, noting that whoever reviewed his acting were positive with him serving his roll perfectly, also a lot of wrong facts were stated and imo a false reviews on certain elements that the movie is based on which i didn't appreciate.

shame, i hope more well-aware critics will watch this movie and review it
