Didn't expect would be so good.
11 April 2015 | by jojifreySee all my reviews

Watched it last night. At first, I thought it would be another colossal Korean movie, but after a few minutes, I was intrinsically interested with the directing, editing, scoring, and how the story evolving.

The characters, all have their magnetic personalities that trapped me into liking almost each of them. Especially the little girl, her acting is impressive. And the king, don't let me start. Even the antagonistic Queen.. she's magnetically impressive as well.

Heck, even the quiet killer, and the clash with his old buddy, seemed interwoven sweetly.

I have been a kung-fu movie fan since decades ago, but I must say, this one Korean movie is a great masterpiece that I have never seen before during my fan-girling all Chinese, Hongkong, or Japanese movies.

OK, except for HERO. I think they almost have the same depth of quality.

Utterly recommended.
