Better than I expected; Not as good as it could have been
1 May 2012 | by TKDLion8See all my reviews

This movie was better than I expected. The premise is not entirely original but it didn't feel old as I got into the movie.

They made a couple of interesting decisions about how to end the movie which I will not talk about too much in case you are reading this and haven't seen the movie yet. I'll just say that the ending is left open ended. That works really well for some movies but it kind of bothered me in this case. I was too worried about what the outcome would be to be really satisfied by the ending.

There was a really bad decision made by the distributors to make the gangsters talk with a New York Mafia style speech pattern. I got really tired of this and switched it to Korean with English subtitles. Sadly even the subtitles are written this way. It wasn't as annoying as the audio though.

The first two thirds of the movie was great but the last third was only okay.
