Another Korean crime movie, another story about corrupt government officials. It always makes me wonder if I'm just watching the same story in a slightly different form.

EVEN so, the story was well-executed and acted that I was glued to my screen throughout the movie.

Kim Rae-won and Han Seok Kyu, the two main leads, are both fantastic. Kim Rae-won's grit, perseverance, and desperation to avenge his brother is clear and wins you over quickly at the start of the show. Han Seok Kyu, despite playing an evil character, commands the screen every time he is in a scene and makes you root for him even though he is truly a despicable character. There are a few other actors who would hold top billing in their own right but played supporting characters in this movie, to add to the star quality already leading the movie.

The story escalates quickly to a thrilling end, and I was pretty satisfied with the way the story was resolved and how it ended.

As for music, the use of instrumental music to build up the suspense of certain scenes is one of the better ones I've seen amongst other Korean action movies.

A very entertaining watch with some great performances from the leads.
