This movie had potential...but while it wasn't a bad movie, it failed to live up to it's potential in my eyes. It didn't explain why anything really happened, and the last 5 minutes left me scratching my head. Other than that, i LOVED the use of foreigners speaking perfect Korean as the two side characters. The music conveyed the mood perfectly. As for rewatch value, it's an alright movie to rewatch. Overall read more this movie is getting an 8, mainly because i felt like it didnt explain a lot of stuff.

The story line for this drama is very straight forwarded and the actors did a very good job in bring there characters to life. However, this movie brings a lot of question on how Im got so strong and indestructible, or if there are others that can control people as well. Yet over all it's a simple movie with a simple plot that just happened to bring many brain teasers to the read more possibilities of the human mind and body. I would recommend this movie just for the great effort that every actor put into this movie despite the complex storyline.

    I really don't know what to think of this movie. The one guy basically has a geass and the other can take a hell of a beating. It did make me laugh a lot though and that one scene was sad, though most the times I was just like wth? Can't really take it seriously but it's an ok watch just don't expect much.

    just watched this movi and i totally fell in love with it
    (waring: spoilers are following)

    i don't know why either it's such an interesting movie
    the whole movie you're like trying to figure out what the hell is going on and in the end he did what he wanted to do
    at the end i was just like duhh xD i don't know the ending was really weird but i loved the acting of kang dong won was realy good
    i quite liked it that he actually saved her life before he dies that was quiet interesting
    the part where he wants to shoot his mom and decided not to was a little confusing he hated her and not hated her at all
    i couldn't figured out these people who wants to kill just everyone just because they think everyone hates them and then they can't kill one person
    why did he choose to live like that and why did he killed all those people?
    why did he decide to use his powers?
    he could just lived a normal live without even using them
    i mean when he can switch between controlling them and not controlling them at all why did he choose to control them? just because he hated everyone for hating him? that's why he wanted to use his powers? it's just too confusing for me
    and in the end he even said he just wanted to live and i'm like yeah you stupid person then why did you choose to live like that? totally confusing to me
    what about ou guys do you feel the same?
    but anyways the film was really moving and i loved it anyways despide the confusing fact of the plot

    The ending wasn't that bad. Overall, the movie had a different way of explaining what was going on. The ending just followed that style. But it made sense to me...they just don't spell it out for you in a conventional way. Now whether the style works...well...depends on the person.

    The movie has suspense. A perhaps a bit of a mystery element considering ppl seem unsure what is going on. xD

    Saw this movie about a year ago.
    Didn't really understand what happened after the middle part.
    Not a bad movie, but not the best one I've seen.
