The Swindlers Review: A one-time watch!
15 March 2018 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: The Swindlers (15): Action/Crime - Korean


  • The performances of the lead actors are decent.
  • The screenplay is for the most part gripping.
  • The action sequences have been shot and executed quite well, most notably a terrific car chase.
  • The film starts to get thrilling towards the end, and the climax is quite an unexpected as well as an amazing one.


  • The story takes its time to set up, and in the process the writing at times turns a bit uneven.
  • The editing is also not without its share of flaws, as the film could've been trimmed slightly.
  • The dramatic aspect has not been handled very well.

Repeat value: Low

As a whole, THE SWINDLERS is an entertaining and a decently made crime action film which is worth watching watching once, if you're interested in movies of this kind.
