Bland heist movie that takes place in the Joseon Dynasty
29 April 2014 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This is a bland heist movie that seems at first to have the potential to be fun but falls short. Quite a bit of characters and scenarios was just pointless and doesn't really add anything to this movie. I was never a fan of the actor Cha Tae-Hyun and once again he plays the same character he does in just about all of his movies. Since the beginning build up seemed to have potential I thought the exciting and clever parts would be when the heist actually takes place. However it just turned out to be generic and pretentious while it trying to be more than what it really is. The plan is way more simple than what it really is, with quite a bit of unnecessary elements. The heist revolves around a group trying to steal ice which was a rare commodity back in the Joseon Dynasty. I am not quite sure which movie is worse this or "The Thieves" 2012. Oh and the theme song is alright but it's way overplayed, like WAY too much.

4.8/10
