Sung-chan is a top detective of the special crime squad. He is notorious for punishing the opponent who hurts his pride. When Hyun-min impersonates Sung-chan and robs a cash transport car under the daylight, and seizes $10 billion worth of smuggled gold right before the cops eyes, Sung-chan is outraged. He cannot let this criminal slip through. Sung-chan goes after Hyun-min like a wild beast going after its prey, but Hyun-min cunningly read morethreads through the investigation, even leaving traces in the crime scenes on purpose to allure and provoke Sung-chan.

Wow! two thumbs up movie. For those who loves Ocean 11, Ocean 12 and so on, this movie have more or less the same feeling towards it, but of course more of korean touch.

Plot: Brilliant

Acting: well maybe i'm being bias because i'm a fan of Cha Seung Won, but fan or not, he is no doubt an excellent actor. I can see the good chemistry he emits towards other actors. read more As for Sung Baek, he carries his part well.

Music: love the soundtracks. It makes my feet thump

Rewatch value: a definite a must rewatch movie.

A strongly recommended movie. A must watch movie!

This film will leave you laughing hysterically for about five minutes after it’s finished. With no exaggeration, this is one of the most arresting and intriguing films I’ve ever watched. I literally couldn’t take my eyes off and I followed exactly their actions; the hysterical laughter especially.

Ahn Hyun Min (Cha Seung Won) is a brilliant schemer with a perfect plan for revenge. To get to his goals he impersonates the bilious read more and troublesome Police Captain Sung Chan Baek (The legendary Han Seok Kyu). Aware of his impulsive personality and strong pride; Ahn Hyun Min moves Sung Chan Baek according to his plan. Chan Baek on the other hand takes the challenge personally and charges head-on in the battle with Hyun Min.

Apart from the brilliancy of the production and the plot, the acting of these two leads is superb. The encounters between the two are mesmerising in an insane way. Their smirks and laughter, their conversations and their challenging stares make a saga. Don’t know how I survived before this film.

I read some people comparing it to American films but because I’m not knowledgeable when it comes to those; this film is an experience to me; a brand new and beautiful one.

    Watched on Amazon, free with Prime. I found it lackluster. Character development was minimal to criminal. Having great leads like Cha and Han in this did it no favor, not that they weren't great as always, I just really didn't get attached to either of them because I never felt any connection! Maybe it was my mood. The story was good, if not new, but how it was put together was so hodge podge feeling. Here's a scene, there's a scene, no background except for a few sentences of explanation. I don't know. This is the genre I am usually loving...NOT loving this at all.

    An enjoyable and fun chase! I found myself laughing more than once at the tricks Cha Seung Won's character would pull lol - and Han Seok Kyu's laughter at times made me laugh b/c of that itself :P I particularly liked how they ended it! ^_^

    Favorite quote from this movie: "There is just one time when a dog can beat a tiger. When the tiger tries to kill it's puppy. The dog will bite it with all the life in him." ~ Ahn Hyeon Min

    Perfect weekend movie pick. I watched for Cha Seung Won but ended up loving the entire cast, and how the plot unfolded. It was funny, action-packed, touching and just GOOD. Now if only I could find a similar drama to follow it up with...
