Underestimated...
5 June 2004 | by geniale_schildpadSee all my reviews

... to say the least.

I bought this baby for €4.99, and I keep wondering why it's priced so low! Perhaps because nobody knows the film? Well, they should.

Don't get me wrong, it's no masterpiece, but it can easily compete with most of recent blockbusters. The action sequences were very nice, and the acting was incredible, as were the settings and costumes. To bad for the rather badly done CGI, but what can someone expect from a country that only recently has adopted CGI.

conclusion: Gingko shows us just a little bit of the bright future Southern Korea has in the international movie industy. 7,5/10
