A horrible crime mystery movie...
Right, well as much as I love South Korean cinema, then of course not every single movie that comes from South Korea will be a good experience. But still, I will gladly watch them, even if never having heard about it, because chances are quite high that they turn out to be good and entertaining.
However "Jing tian da ni zhuan" (aka "Tik Tok") turned out to be one of the movies that broke the streak of great movies. Why? Well, because the storyline was a horrible shambled mess of an incoherent storyline that seemed more like director Li Jun and writer Xiaoyang Ding were just making up random scenes as they went along and the movie was shot.
The movie, however, was somewhat made bearable to watch by the acting performances of both Jung-jae Lee and Yueting Lang. However, they were cut down horribly by an abysmal storyline and a mess of a plot.
And to make matters worse, then the ending of the movie was even more atrocious. That was just like a slap in the face, after having suffered through the ordeal that is "Tik Tok". Then the writer and director pulls another random card from the hat and goes "yeah, just when you thought you had it figured out".
I managed to endure "Tik Tok" right up to the end, sitting in a fading hope that maybe the movie will correct its course and become a properly entertaining movie. Yeah, that just never happened and I was left sorely disappointed. This is definitely a movie that will never be seen a second time around here in my household.
