On August 20, 2018, the film received an 18 rating from the Korea Media Rating Board. Replying to media, the film's production company stated that the film did not contain 'such strong' restricted content (such as violence and gore), and they believed that it is milder than two other 2018 released films Believer and The Witch: Part 1 - The Subversion, which both received age 15-rating. As such, the film was re-edited and re-submitted to the board for a "age 15-rating", with no change in its release schedule. The film eventually was released under a age 15-rating, after approximately 2 minutes worth of content were shaved off from the original cut. See more »
Nostalgic Detective & Killers Movies from South Korea
Claimed as a film based on a true story about a detective who investigates the case of a killer in the city of Busan, South Korea.
Without further ado, from the start the film immediately directs us to a series of murder cases that have been committed by the killer based on his confession to the detective. Cunningly, the killer tried to play with the detective with confusing statements. Until a bright spot where his actions can be proven by the police and increase the weight of the murderer's punishment.
Typical of South Korean films where police and killers are always in touch. Even though we rarely find iconic films like Memories of Murder (2003) and The Chaser (2008), but 'Dark Figure of Crime' can provide an interesting spectacle. Moreover, the film stars South Korean veteran Kim Yoon-seok (The Chaser, The Yellow Sea, Hwayi: The Monster Boy, Fog Sea and other famous titles) with the opposite of a rising actor Ju Ji-hoon.
