An excellent action movie. Keeps you on the edge
Wow! This film has a bit of everything. An action packed thriller that connects.
I need to rewatch this movie, I now understand the ending after watching an analysis and it all makes sense (yes I'm a dummy)
Well that's basically an asian John wick. A good action movie.
Korean cinema at its finest. Great performances all round
Moving, intelligent and a very adult film. Sharp bouts of violence and amazing presentation really make for an unpredictable ride
Pure brilliance. I can't believe I never heard of this movie until now
Excellent violent crime drama, must see for fans of the genre
Action noire with beautiful OST. Masterpiece of revenge movies. Loved it.
