Cast Member: Shin Ha-Kyun
Extreme JobDec 4, 2021
What starts as an amusing, quirky action comedy goes off the rails around the hour mark, the makers falling foul of the obscure law of Korean blockbusters that means that they MUST have a duration of two hours or over.
Sympathy For Mr. VengeanceJun 7, 2015
It doesn’t deliver as much as it promises and doesn’t quite hit the mark as a complete unit due to a less cohesive second half and not enough time spent establishing Dong-Jin’s character.
The Front LineMar 15, 2015
Wisely building to the big combat scenes, ‘The Front Line’ lets us, the viewer, get to know the characters and watch them transform through their actions and what they must go through to survive.
The Quiz Show ScandalMay 16, 2015
‘The Quiz Show Scandal’ is a keenly-observed comic creation. As nutty as a Korean version of ‘It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad World’ should be while also succeeding in pulling off moments of mordant wit.
The ThievesJun 10, 2015
‘The Thieves’ is the kind of bloated, star-studded jolly up that you may have been mistaken for thinking that Hollywood had copyrighted.
The VillainessJun 11, 2018
As much a twisty-turny drama as an all out action flick, ‘The Villainess’ overdoes both its noble attempts at gritty drama and action technical wizardry.
ThirstJun 10, 2015
‘Thirst’ is an enjoyable but flawed experience, a stark, spooky drama with lashings of gallows humour that make up for its slight dips in story and style.
Welcome To DongmakgolJun 25, 2015
Witty, moving and, most important of all considering its intentions, scathing without jaundiced polemic, this is a remarkable film.
