Interesting action thriller
5 June 2018 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

This is an interesting action thriller, but felt unnecessary detail got in the way of a film that could and should have been significantly faster paced, and could have cut the running time. Honestly, there were scenes that made me wonder why they were added to the final cut. Towards the end it does gain pacing and it is an exciting thrill ride.

Hyun Bin was excellent as Detective Lim Cheol - sleek, classy and tough. I really enjoyed him in the lead. Hae-jin Yoo was a bit too tongue-in-cheek-ish, although his performance was very good during the climatic final battle. The two actors did complement each other, though, and the trust issue between the two was effectively done, being North and South Koreans. In general, this was a good film.
