Prosecutor Jae Wook, who specialized in violent crimes, detests the criminals and doesn't give a damn about their human rights. One day, while interrogating Jin Seok, a suspect looking insincere, Jae Wook loses his temper again and beats him. The next morning, when Jae Wook comes back to the interrogation room, he finds Jin Seok dead. Jae Wook is charged with murder and arrested. The Prosecutors' Office, including Jae Wook's boss and close colleagues, desperately tries to find a way out of this trouble, leaving him as a scapegoat. Jae Wook claims his innocence but gets sentenced 10 years in prison. In prison, Jae Wook meets a handsome, even petty criminal, Chi Won and finds the clue of the scheme which put him in prison. Jae Wook asks Chi Won to join forces with him and begins training him to reveal the scheme and get his revenge. (Source: KoBiz) Edit Translation

A predictable and fun movie. Typical comedy-detective (common plot and happy ending), I wonder if this genre combination is a hit in Korea, considering Veteran and Accidental Detective are popular before Violent Prosecutor.

Seems like this movie purposely doesn't give its viewer a chance to guess or some curiosity feelings who is the bad guy or how the case will be solved. Because they already told who is the bad guy from the start of the movie, what's the motive and what's the crucial point of the main case. It's a fast pace story at the beginning, this movie is more focused on Byun Jae-wook's life in prison while he also attempt to prove his innocent. It's kinda reminds me of Prison Break or Shawshank Redemption, but it's not as serious as them. This movie shows how rotten prison system and attorney because of corruption and politic. Typical right? haha.

Byun Jae-wook was portrayed as a genius prosecutor so he can handle how harsh prison life is easily. Such as how he manipulate warden, prison officials and all the residents, how to smuggle forbidden stuff from outside prison and so on. Soon he became the ruler in the prison who was followed by all the prison residents. Han Chi Won is a smart swindler, typical a free kid (actually his character reminds me of Jung Joon Young tho). They were met in prison and dealt to work together with mutual advantages by combining their skill. A duo combination of heroes is not a new thing, but their journey is fun to be followed in this movie. The comedy is not exaggerate, but still can make you smile sometimes. The action was also just fine. But there is no remarkable character here despite the cast line were so good.

I like this movie tho, because it's harmless, the story was delivered well and clear, 100% happy ending, smart and strong main leads. A good choice to be watched with your family.

''A Violent Prosecutor'' is a very funny and well-thought movie. Quite predictable (on purpose) and very fast-paced, with good directing and excellent performances.

The first half (more like the firts 30-40 minutes) of the movie was not that entertaining. I still liked it, but I was eagerly waiting for something more to happen. And then, Kang Dong Won appeared and made the movie a hundred times better. His character became one of my favourites. He played a very smart and witty swindler who tells nothing but lies. He was extremely funny and enjoyable to watch. His scenes were the best! (And that kiss with Shin Hye Sun... wow!) I loved Prosecutor Byun Jae Wook too, Hwang Jung Min delivered a brilliant and emotional performance. The same goes for Lee Sung Min, whose character was beyond horrible and Park Sung Woong who was as good as always.

Overall, ''A Violent Prosectuor'' is a must-watch if you are looking for a fun, predicatble movie to relieve stress.
