So So Dramedy
12 February 2018 | by marcagSee all my reviews

As this type of movie goes, you could do worse than The Sheriff In Town. It is sometimes funny and has some interesting drama moments. At the same time, you could do better without much effort. There is a lack of direction for the protagonist that the movie was never able to overcome. In addition, the movie was not able to balance the tonal contrast between its drama elements and comedy elements. I would personally say that the drama works better. Finally, I think the protagonist played by Lee Sung-Min is miscast. In many ways, the movie could have compensated for its tonal issues with an actor that could more subtly balance them in his performance. Lee Sung-Min, while a decent character actor, wasn't successful in this area. Personally, I think he is better as a supporting character actor rather than a leading man. So, if you are going to watch this movie, watch it for a drama than the comedy.
