Ocean's 11 Korean style
10 November 2019 | by growns_upSee all my reviews

This movie has plenty of twists and turns...and does not disappoint. I suspected a lot of things halfway through because I've come to expect it of these types of movies but I still enjoyed it. What's more interesting is the actors that I keep seeing pop up in varying roles. For instance I'd just seen one of the actors as a very chillingly convincing serial killer and another as a contract killer/cop and both were very different in this film. Love the variety! Overall this movie has a good mix of comedy, mystery, drama and suspense.
