I read the reviews here before watching this movie. Some were a little harsh, others were way too kind. This movie was all over the place. The editing has much less to be desired. As someone else mentioned, it's like they skipped about 15 minutes between some cuts. Making you wonder, "How did they get there?" And, "Where did those people come from?" And they were inconsistent. If you are like me, and notice (whether you want to or not) little things, this might bother you. Eg. Injury on one side of the head at first, then cut to another scene, and the injury is on the opposite side. Cut to another scene, and the injury is back on the original side. The CG was pretty good. But it doesn't carry the story. Storyline had potential, but the way they cut it, diminished it for me. So, if you have nothing else to watch, are fan of Korean action movies, and want to see something to help you go to sleep (not that this is a boring movie), why not. I didn't fall asleep, and it didn't make me regret watching it. I call these "Filler" movies. And if you can watch it with english dub, do so. Some foreign movies are better when watching with original language, and subtitles. This one doesn't make a difference. It would probably be easier to watch in english. So you can at least hear what's being said, while grabbing some munchies, make coffee, or check email. No need to pause. lol
