The movie starts with a good note and develop its main Character very well. Someone wants to be heard and will do anything to do so.
The middle also continues with the suspense. However, its here when things get unreal and ridiculous. For example, the way the Police Commissioner handles the situation is very unreal and comically dramatic.
My major disappointment with the movie though was the ending. With all the built up suspense, the ending left me unsatisfied. I was waiting for something big. Something that could have justified the action of the protagonist. but it didn't.
I waited and waited for the plot twist, but never got it. Even with the director intended to, it was pretty obvious for me.
Great potential, but rather turned out to be another predictable drama then a thriller with a message. 1 time watch if you have nothing else to do and have seen all the other great Korean thrillers twice. :)
