Movie: The Spy (15): Action/Comedy - Korean


  • Sol Kyung-gu impresses once again. His comic timing is excellent and he even excels in the action department as usual, while Moon So-ri is also quite entertaining as his wife. All actors deliver terrific performances.
  • The plot is very fast paced and quite simple to follow.
  • The action scenes are excellent.
  • The editing also works big time as the film rarely has any boring moments.
  • The humour also is actually hilarious.
  • The screenplay is quite impressive.


  • Nil.

Repeat value: Yes

THE SPY is a completely entertaining action comedy which is gripping from the start to finish. Do watch it, and especially, don't miss the end!
