Stylish but lacks substance, still watchable though
Another style over substance movie from Korea. Sure it's watchable but it just isn't a satisfying film. With the direction mostly being predictable and doesn't have the factors that would grip the audiences enough to even care. Maybe the fan girls of the singer Choi Seung-hyun. Who is all about trying to portray him as cool to the max. Which is alright, since there is nothing wrong with having a protagonist that tries to act cool all the time. But when the movie is just mainly about trying to appear cool and stylish, it doesn't necessarily equal a good movie. This movie goes from point A to point B to point C and for the most part it becomes a bit tedious because of the formulaic direction of it all. The main drive for this movie is the cool factor when it comes to using trickery with cards. But like I said some fan girls might really eat up the protagonist trying uber hard to appear cool and stylish. So I can only see fan girls getting attached to a character in this movie. Don't get me wrong it's a watchable movie and it at least doesn't really get dry. I also liked the colorful cinematography but overall it's mostly forgettable. I recommend checking out the first film "Tazza: The High Rollers" which is most definitely a way better film.
