Hey, gangster! Are you still there? DO you mind perishing?
Why the Korean movie circle is still beating the dead horse? The gangster comedy which is a unique genre in Korean cinema is always hovering and resurrecting whenever audiences are tired and bored of copy-catted old flicks.
This movie, at one glance, is outrageous and hilarious but lacks the breakthrough for the evolution of stalled genre. Too many visual gags and cinematographic jokes spoil the consistency of characters. Besides, no universal laugh is expected but only small portion of human kind will take this as a Comedy: unnecessary assortment of awkward situations and unrealistic background of Korean gangster family and law enforcement.
Some native Korean movie-goers will not feel sorry for paying tickets but there hardly is a theater-sitter who is willing to be amused by watching the surrealistic relationship between a gangster boss and a female prosecutor. Time has passed in Korea when the gangster used to collect the protection fee from naive movie-goers!! Now it's time they were only remembered as one of past favorite cinema characters. No more gangsters in Korean movie, please!
