Ended up as being a generic action comedy...
17 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of the South Korean cinema and usually take the time and effort to watch every single movie from South Korea that I can get my hands upon. I must admit that I hadn't heard about "Enemies In-Law" prior to stumbling upon it by sheer luck. But this being South Korean and an action comedy, of course I had to give it a watch.

I will be the first to admit that they had together a rather good ensemble of actors and actresses to perform the various roles and characters in the movie. And the cast were doing good jobs in bringing their respective characters to life on the screen. Hong Jong-Hyun (playing Chul-Soo) and Jin Se-Yun (playing Young-Hee) had great chemistry on the screen and were complimenting each other quite nicely.

However, "Enemies In-Law" was just weighed down by an overly mediocre storyline that didn't really offer much in terms of comedy or entertainment. And that came to be an anchor that held the movie back from fulfilling its full potential.

"Enemies In-Law" was hardly a memorable moment in South Korean cinema. And it is also very doubtful that I will be returning to this movie a second time around.
