Sort of like a High School Scarface or a Korean Boyz in the Hood
14 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This movie is also called "Gangster High." It chronicles four days of six first year high school Korean boys who start a soccer club called the "Tigers." However they are slowly pulled into more and more gang-like violent scenarios. Lee Sunho is the President of the club and he is a good student and a good athlete. The violence begins early in the film and steadily intensifies. The consequences and tragedy of this film are profound making this film poignant. The score and soundtrack are phenomenal. The cinematography is nicely stylized and the plot is moving. This is a good movie. The fight scenes are especially clean, no wires or any silly pausing. Very lo-fi and realistic, I wonder if they were really fighting.
