Sensational!
15 May 2019 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

Captivating from the very first second! This fast-paced action thriller offers very good action scenes and nail biting suspense.

There are maybe too many conveniences for one film, but bloody hell, this was entertaining! The film is very unpredictable and also very emotional at times. The acting was really good. Great editing too. The plot thickened every step of the way, adding more mystery as the film progressed. Seung-ryong Ryu is so good and likable as the anti-hero hero. Jin Goo was equally good as his brother.

'The Target' is right up there with the best Korea has to offer. This was sensational!
