Single Rider Review: A lone man show headed by Lee Byung-hun!
14 October 2017 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: Single Rider (15)

Rating: 4/5

Lee Byung-hun is known mostly for his action thrillers. He really pulls out every role he does, with perfection. Undoubtedly, he repeats this same thing even in this differently written fantasy drama SINGLE RIDER. It's not that such films haven't been made before but the way it unfolds the journey of Lee Byung-hun's character is what makes it different.

It won't be anywhere wrong to say that SINGLE RIDER rides totally on the shoulders of Lee Byung-hun. Other actors like Gong Hyo-jin and Ahn So- hee also do their respective parts well. But undoubtedly, it's Lee who steals the show with a stellar performance.

The film's technical aspects are top notch. The cinematography is praiseworthy. The visuals of the film are quite excellent, and they are another reason why this film should be caught on a Blu-ray. The film succeeds in getting the emotional parts right and never bores till it ends.

The music also needs to be appreciated as it enhances the viewing experience from time to time. The director deserves praise for bringing out the best from the cast.

The film's unfolding towards the end is however a slight issue, as many might get confused as to what happened. Even I got. But I didn't find it difficult to realize what actually happened. The climax packs a punch as it's pretty intense.

SINGLE RIDER undoubtedly is another addition to top Lee Byung-hun films. He will keep you engrossed no matter what. Just trust him, watch him, the film and just question yourself about how would you've felt had you been in his place?
