Positives:

- The performances of the lead actors are decent.
- The screenplay is for the most part gripping.
- The action sequences have been shot and executed quite well, most notably a terrific car chase.
- The film starts to get thrilling towards the end, and the climax is quite an unexpected as well as an amazing one.

Negatives:

- The story takes its time to set up, and in the process the writing at times turns a bit uneven.
- The editing is also not without its share of flaws, as the film could've been trimmed slightly.
- The dramatic aspect has not been handled very well.

Repeat value: Low

As a whole, THE SWINDLERS is an entertaining and a decently made crime action film which is worth watching watching once, if you're interested in movies of this kind.

A Korean  thriller without salt, history is the holy degree of artistic  conformation which may be a paradoxical aspect, a delicate machining  mechanism, whose individual pieces are nevertheless bold and flashy,  although there are some arguments as to whether it is best to observe  the team work for its reward or reveal that it was all part of the plan. Similarly, the cast is strong, moving fairly smoothly as a whole. He  is good at getting away from the necessary, but not exciting, parts of a  complicated plot when they can threaten to take the film and close the  explanations about things that the public can see for themselves.
