Bad, very bad
13 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

10 good minutes in a long nerve wrecking boredom, I am a fan of korean cinema, just watched a great korean movie: peace breaker. the merciless is so boring, you start to play games on your phone, and who is the merciless? a real bore, many flashbacks, you can immediatly know if a movie is s**t if half of it is flashbacks, even the action is lousy, this film takes itself very seriously, but in one part, after being hit, a man hears birds chirping, like in a cartoon! terrible
