In the dystopian South Korea, Jun Seok gets out of prison for a previous heist he and his friends had messed up, and the currency (the Korean won) has crashed massively, making the haul of their last job effectively worthless. Jun Seok proposes one last heist to his best friends Jang Ho and Ki Hoon, in order for the trio to escape from their miserable situations. Their target is an illegal gambling house, which stores hefty stacks of US dollars. The trio recruits Sang Soo, who currently works in the gambling house. After getting firearms from Bong Shik, a friend Jun Seok knew in prison, the quartet proceeds with the heist, which finishes messy but successful. They take a large sum of cash and the gambling house's surveillance hard drives, which contain footage of shady dealings between the gambling house's owners and various criminals.

The movie scheduled to stream exclusively on Netflix worldwide from April 10th, 2020, but on April 9th, 2020 the South Korean courts sided with distribution company Contents Panda on its injunction to stop the release of the film on Netflix. Contents Panda claims to hold international distribution rights, prior to the Netflix agreement with studio company Little Big Pictures.

Suspenseful but unconvincing
29 April 2020 | by mister_batemanSee all my reviews

Four reckless young idiots get a little in over their heads after deciding to "acquire" some extra cash without really knowing who they are dealing with. The movie is quite suspenseful, but unfortunately the protagonists' actions don't make any sense in several key scenes. "Why the hell are you going in there"-type of stuff we know from dumb horror movies, which just kills your engagement and interest.

The post-economic-collapse Korea backdrop that created the circumstances pushing them towards their unlawful endeavor is portrayed rather unconvincingly. Basically they just added a weird looking electric car and parts of the city are really run down. But there doesn't seem to be any real societal hardship or anything. The bigger picture isn't explained well at all.

Due to their stupid actions, the main characters aren't too relatable and the bad guys aren't very well developed either. And for some reason they decided to add a few American "urban culture" elements, like hip hop beats and the according clothes and mannerisms, which is always ridiculous and in this case also inauthentic. But that's minor.

Ultimately the movie could have been a lot better but is mediocre due to bad writing and I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
