Prosecutor Jae Wook, 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 to 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.

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.

Meh movie. Meh action, meh main leads, just meh. Look we watch gangster movies for the edgy noir feel and for messed up stories and great action. When we get a good helping of all that we don't mind the overuse of tropes or the flimsy plot. But gangster movies are interesting because of the main leads, Friends, For the Emperor, Tazza, Cruel City all have interesting leads and great character development but this one the main leads are so one dimensional. Anyway it didn't work for me. I found it boring but kept watching because sometimes movies get better later on but not this one
