I'd nearly lost my faith in the awesomeness of random Korean movies after being subjected to '2009: Lost Memories' and 'Hwangsanbul'. Along came 'Who's Got the Tape?' and after a few "Woah, awesome, I don't understand" type sentences, I felt renewed faith in the random awesomeness of random awesome Korean movies.
'Who's Got the Tape?' carries the honour of both the strangest and silliest film I've seen all week. It is essentially a teen comedy, albeit a rather melodramatic teen comedy about a teenager held by thugs trying to find a tape that incriminates the thug's boss. It is long, but not the "What's the time? Is it over yet?" length of '2009', nor does it lose pace like 'Hwangsanbul'.
'Who's Got the Tape?' is rather funny, but like any random teen comedy, it plays a lot into sex jokes and scenes that just don't make any sense. Awesome. It would have been better had it not been as long and melodramatic - 7/10
