Jo Pil-ho is a corrupt cop who helps a partner escape after a heist. Teaming up for a seemingly last one, Pil-ho and his partner decide to rob the police warehouse but an explosion thwarts their plans, leaving Pil-ho unconscious and his partner dead. When his own department begins suspecting his involvement in the explosion, for which he isn't responsible, Pil-ho decides to erase all evidence pointing towards him: and in the process finds himself enlisting a teenage girl's help in exposing a corporate scandal. Initially doing it just to get his name cleared, Pil-ho eventually finds himself becoming the girl's unlikely protector after a series of violent events.Written by
The film takes its time to lay out a well-constructed and engaging story with character development solid enough to deliver some emotional scenes toward its conclusion. Light on action but strong on plot and drama, with a convincing antihero 'bad cop' protagonist, and excellent support.
The score is subtle, and the lighting is suitably moody. While it doesn't have the impact of 'The Man From Nowhere,' it's still worthwhile viewing.
