It looks like an American movie with a Korean twist.
In terms of the story itself, I think the film did a good job, it has action scenes and suspense interspersed with more elaborate scenes and long dialogues.

Negatively, or rather, cliché is because of the infamous little black bone of the villains, it is always the same model and brand, it becomes annoying.

The ending of the film is also a big negative point, I can not go into detail for obvious reasons, but let's just say that everything accumulates to an almost unbearable level of intensity.

- The performances of Kim Rae-won and Han Suk-kyu are excellent.
- The action scenes have been shot and executed very well.
- The film is very well edited and there are no boring scenes in the film; it's very gripping.
- The screenplay is excellent and watertight. Unpredictability of most of the sequences makes it even better.
- The climax is quite excellent and very effective.
