This movie really leans more towards the genre of 'typical action movie' than the sageuk genre - it doesn't put itself in a specific time of Korean history and incorporates modern weaponry. Even the filmmaking style feels really contemporary. I also like the incorporation of an emotional element and character backstory.

As for the cast, Ha Ji Won, being the consummate action star and the main star of this movie, does a read more really good job in the action side of things, and the emotional side of things. Kang Ye Won was OK and played the requisite doofus of the trio. Of the three angels, Ga In's character is the smallest so she had minimal time to show off her acting chops. I've only watched her in Dream High so far. She was OK I guess.

In short, a pretty straightforward female-focused brainless action movie in a sageuk context.

Ha ji won in another BA role. These are both action movies that are interesting.

    I actually quite liked this but I guess that's to be expected since I love the Charlie's Angels movies.
    Joo Sang Wook's character reminds me of the Thin Man (who I loved, creep and all) so is it any wonder that I loved Sang Hyeon just as much? <3

    I was not pleased despite my extremely low expectations. I don't know, the story was too similar to Charlie's Angels that it rubbed me off the wrong way. Also, the main girls couldn't act for their lives. This made me remember why I consider Ha Ji Won completely annoying at times.
    The bright side was some humour and fan-service simple Joeson action but that's it. Oh, and Joo Sang Wook is a waste on this film.

    First reaction? Charlies Angels of Joseon. Funny, lots of action, Girl-power all the way! Perfect for a Sat and good to see HJW in a truly campy role, can tell she is working on her skills. Perfect length, simple storyline, no ROM and not drawn out.

    It was a comedy and action movie, I liked the three female leads, they were nice in fighting scenes, especially Ha Ji Won was wonderful as usual.

    well, just finished it and apart from the very ... challenging subs, the movie was not what I expected. It was comical (and not always in a good way), and the story was all over the place. Hardly any golden thread, loose ends and underdeveloped characters. Not as satisfyingas I thought it would be. :(
