After barely surviving a violent attack by an elusive serial killer, crime boss Jang Dong-su (Don Lee) finds himself forming an unlikely partnership with local detective Jung Tae-seok (Kim Moo Yul) to catch the sadistic killer simply known as “K”.
I came across this movie on Viki and was curious about it because of one of the main characters in it. Ma Dong Seok was my favorite character in Train to Busan so when I saw that he was in this one, I thought, “Why not?” and I started watching it immediately.
So this movie is about a gangster who almost died at the hands of a serial killer and the cop that join forces to catch the devil serial killer who is running rampant around the city. I thought that I would enjoy this movie a lot more than I did but for a huge portion of the movie, I was bored. I freaking hated the cop and was okay with the gangster (that’s probably cause I’m biased. I loved the gangster’s acting) and didn’t care one way or the other about the devil. There’s a lot of action going on so that was a plus but again, for most of the movie, I was bored and it was easy for me to dose in and out of the movie so when it finally ended, I was glad. I didn’t hate the movie and there were parts of the movie that were good but not enough of the movie was good enough for me to give this movie a higher grade than a 2.
2 out of 5
Sucks that you didn’t enjoy this one more. It sounds like such a meh film though. If it didn’t old your attention though then really not worth the time. I’ve often been guided to watch films because I like an actor in it and then been disappointed.
Yeah, I wouldn’t recommend it for you to watch. The cop pissed me off with how stupid annoying he was and the story as a whole was pretty boring. I’d skip it.
