Storyline

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 Prashast Singh

Why the low rating?
7 April 2020 | by steli-osSee all my reviews

This movie definetly deserves more than 6.2 (at he the time of this review). It's an ok movie up to a certain point. Probably the first 2/3 of the movie. Then it gets better. The last scene "made me" rate this movie with an 8. The acting is great (this is obviously just my opinion)
