Cast & Credits
But, if we can separate it from the historical context and accuracy or lack of it, the movie itself, as a classic good-vs-evil action thriller, is pretty entertaining and exciting. The appeal of it is boosted by its star-studded cast; if it had been a B-list cast it might not have been so popular or well-executed. Lee Jung-jae and Ha Jung Woo in particular are excellent in this. They have great screen presence and are positively smouldering, stealing the limelight in any scene they are featured in. Jeon Ji Hyun does a decent job, especially with the action scenes she was handed.
A thrilling action movie you’ll definitely enjoy.
