A serial killer targeting elementary school students is on the loose—and 5 victims means even the president gets involved in the investigation. When the most probable suspect dies in custody and the case looks like it’s reached a dead end, high ranking police brass decide to create a killer—and anyone will do. Though Detective CHOI Cheol-gi boasts an incredible number of arrests over his career his rank never showed it. He was read moreframed and demoted for another crime and decides that this is his last chance at professional redemption. He makes a deal with mob boss JANG Seok-gu, who he has been investigating, and together they decide to set up one of the existing suspects as the serial killer. The only hurdle in their plan is public prosecutor JU Yang, who takes on the case. JU himself had been involved in a deal with the boss of a rival criminal organization, and President Kim wants CHOI dismissed from his position. When the secret deals and back alley agreements start to come to light, it only serves to drag CHOI, JU, JANG, and KIM deeper and deeper into a dark hole of questionable ethics and abuse of the law.

First of all, the Ryu Brothers have proven themselves to be awesome once again. Crying Fist, The Berlin File, and now this. Hats off to Ryu brothers! Though, needless to say, the rest of the casts did an awesome job too.

Anyway, this movie is like a mockery to the lack of law in South Korean (if not anywhere in the world) justice system. Ethics? What ethics? As the Korean saying goes: read more "Give it to the dogs". This movie portrays moral ambiguity to the degree which all the characters connive for their own benefit. It's all about the survival of the meanest and the lowest. Cops and criminals are just the same. They are like twins who are separated from birth, but still share the same genes.

This movie captures a familiar observation about bureaucracy and corruption and lending them a new poignancy. Fast paced and skillfully edited together within amazing visual narrative and non-stop high pitched dialogues, which makes this movie gripping and culpably entertaining.

    This movie didn't make any sense (for me) TBH... I almost fell asleep several times... All I saw was one corrupt person after another and one killing after another, one "framing" after another - That's it. ZERO DEPTH or understanding of our characters! What make them tick? What happened in their life to make them this way? What were their stories? What really were their "morals" *I doubt they even had any*... This story had no story... It was like they said "hey, lets do this, make this happen, and then let's do this, and that's how we'll end it." Seriously! and there were SO many plot holes! Especially one that I wanted to know and they didn't tell me -_- I do not recommend this movie unless you want to watch a senseless movie where none of the characters have any morals (or should I say sense of justice, sense of right and wrong). Everything is BLACK in this. The only "good" character was Ma Dong Seok's character. *Huge sigh*
