Damn it Kwon Sang Woo!! Damn it Yoo Ji Tae!!

Spending the last fifteen minutes of the film crying and 10 more after you're done; that's Running Wild.

The world is upside down. The villains win and the people who fight for justice pay for the villain's crimes. It's a world of money and power. Power prevails; not justice. No matter how hard you try; you'll never win; that's life.

It's not a novel story; two people who have nothing in common bonding together for one goal. But the storyline, the production and the superb acting transform it into a whole new work. And that goddamn ending! As much as I cried as much I was impressed.

There wasn't much music in it. The ending track made for all.

Not a film for the weak hearted.

I started to watch this simply because I like the idea of unexpected friendship, where two different people learn to appreciate and understand each other. Also, a tough and short-tempered homicide detective and a law loving prosecutor working together, I was in.

THE STORY starts as an average on: the good guys form an alliance and go after the bad guy, but it doesn't continue that way. Yes, in the middle the story gets kind of dull and I wondered why I was watching this. But the ending! The ending is something that won't disappoint you and I promise you won't see it coming.

THE ACTING was ok. I believe they did the best they could, but I felt something was missing. Especially the two male leads and the bad guy. They could have depicted their friendship more, and I sometimes felt their acting was a bit forced.

As a whole I can recommend this movie even though it is not worth a 10, but it simply depicts so well the fact that there isn't always such a thing as justice where in the end the bad guy goes to jail and the hero gets the woman. No, if anything this movie is more realistic than the black and white versions of justice I've gotten used to seeing.

Not everyone is going to love the ending, but I did. It was one of the best endings I've seen and because of it I don't regret watching this movie.
