Cast & Credits
I was expecting a movie that would perhaps be more reflective or insightful about what allowed the researcher to deceive Korea and the rest of the world for so many years, but I guess the focus of the movie was really on the whistleblower himself, and his internal struggles with revealing the truth.
Park Hae Il impressed me with his doggedly determined character. I myself watched it for Yoo Yeon Seok, but I wasn't that impressed by him either, regardless of the fact that he was a secondary character to Park Hae Il's PD character.
On the whole, it is an exciting thriller but I was disappointed by it.
I honestly got very bored and couldn't even finish it. Was I expecting something more "thrilling" than what it was? Probably.
I really wanted to enjoy it.
The disappointment is real.
