Korean "Leverage" (no spoilers)
28 August 2015 | by corgisruleSee all my reviews

This heist/revenge movie set in the art forgery world of Korea and, to some extent, Japan is quite enjoyable. There is a great deal of information/history regarding art and art forgery which may not suit the taste of those who prefer the genre of American "knock-em-down, blow-em-up, kick butt and take names later" movies but if you liked the U.S. TV show "Leverage" you will like this movie. Those who watch Korean cinema will see many familiar faces and experience some delightful humorous moments. The look of the movie is sophisticated though it was a little difficult to keep track of where they were from moment to moment as there were frequent scene changes. Rae-won Kim does a good job as the male lead though I liked him better in Sunflower and My Little Bride but that is more because of the character he is playing then his performance. The one serious problem I had with this movie was the subtitles: I felt like I was missing out on dialog, especially the use of the term "jerk" when there was obviously a stronger expletive being spoken (F-bomb, A-H, S-t)-it was quite distracting. I prefer my cursing without sugar coating, thank you very much. All in all I strongly recommend Insadong Scandal.
