Riveting ethical question in cop thriller drama

Wanted to like this crime drama but subdued plot and underdeveloped characters were quite inevitable. Lee Kyu-man actually brought riveting ethical question in perplexing narrative.

Anyhow Woo-sik as honest rookie cop got our sympathy to find some justice.

8 / 10


Storyline: Fast pace movie in 2 hours, undercover police in police unit. Interesting how the movie brings you to the perspective of certain police.

Excellent storyline.

4 / 10

This is not that much good that I expected to be

The story is about a police man named Min jae who is appointed to watch over another police man's (Park) activity which are thought to be illegal. For investing Min Jae joined the team of Park and have been working for him while collecting information against him. Will Min Jae be able to disclose Park's illegal activity?

It might contain some spoilers,The movie is dragged a bit. It could have been better if their chemistry is shown more. If Min Jae past was shown before, it will help audience to understand more. They will understand the concept, why Min wants to be a honest cop? Who's behind his father's murder?

10 / 10


Yet another awesome movie to come out of South Korea. Good cast and great acting all round with this crime drama. Plenty of illegal goings on and corruption throughout with a fast pace to boot. I won't give anything away in my review but i'm hoping for a second movie. Definitely a must watch for South Korean movie fans.

8 / 10

Excellent Korean crime drama.

I enjoyed both Choi Woo-sik (Parasite) and Cho Jin-woong (The Handmaiden) past movies and TV series. It's exciting to see their intense chemistry in this unstoppable crime drama. Full of twists and stylish action sequences.
