Positives:

- Kim Hye-soo steals the show with her stellar act and excels in some action scenes. Lee Sun-kyun impresses even more with his insanely terrific act.
- The action scenes are decently shot.
- The film is quite entertaining in its last 30 minutes. Some sequences at this time are really very well executed.
- The climax is quite good.

Negatives:

- The film is very slow and the story takes too long to pick up, almost when it's too late.
- Editing is decent at 90 minutes, but it could've been edited even more as the first 30 minutes are a complete washout. Character development takes too long and the slow beginning was a major reason towards putting this movie on hold for long.
- The film drags in many portions and the action takes too long to happen.

Repeat value: No

A SPECIAL LADY is all gloss but almost no substance. Watch it for some decent action scenes and performances, but don't expect anything special.

"The Special  Lady" has the negative point, the cinematography, the visuals are a bit  empty, however, the true failure of the film is the script. Lee  tries to impose strong female leadership on a male-dominated genre, but  Hyun-jung is a two-dimensional creation whose strength is undermined by  its melodramatic behavior to back up its actions, and its action scenes  were bad to boot.
Hyun-jung as action leader, but after  no indication of any fighting ability, she suddenly outnumbers a swarm  of infantrymen in a fixed piece and, in addition to a few shots later,  is the sum total of the action quotient of the movie. If  there's anything remarkable about "The Special Lady," it's the  flamboyant wigs in the movie, absolute shallowness and boring scripts.
