I could go on about the slow pace, bad acting, moodiness, implausibility, contrived and generally ridiculous plot line but suffice to say that I wish it was me getting a bullet in my head at the end of the movie.
The movie was dreadful. I'd recommend almost any other Korean movie over this. The sheer number of times I found myself scoffing at the actions of the characters, the plot "twists" or the character "dialogue" were too numerous to count.
Any deeper reading about the supposed message of the movie only serves to obscure the fact that this was one horrible flick.
The only positive comment I can make (as someone on the message boards noted) was some of the very interesting artwork; I quite liked it.
