Loved this movie! As an action movie, it has a great storyline, plot twists and great action scenes and also emotional scenes. I have always loved movies based in that era of espionage and conspiracy.
Acting wise, Jeon ji hyun was amazing as always. The story has her character in the limelight and she made her character shine. The cast was awesome with Lee Jung jae and Ha jung woo in the leading roles.

Without doubt, this film has a Korean nationalistic appeal, due to its historical context. It’s a pretty positive portrayal of Korean independence fighters, but without full knowledge of the Korean independence movement in the relevant time period, it’s hard for me to comment on this aspect.

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.
