Hyun-Soo, a disguised police officer, goes to jail and positions himself under the mandachuva's wing there, whose side he remains when the latter is released from prison and reassumes his position as number two in a brigade.
A story that there is nothing particularly interesting about, which follows a trajectory similar to many tales of Korean gangsters and has more than a passing resemblance to "The Prison", which came out only two months ago, but the film manages to stand out through Verve of his staging and the colorful play between his tracks and evidence.
Sliding around a location replete with characters guiding us through a narrative montage that keeps the action sharp and fun over time. It also shows his style of dialogue that, in particular combined with the film, raises the most mundane scenes that are needed to power the plot.

This is a good cop gangster action movie ..may not be unique in its story but it's the screenplay that made movie more interesting
Performances by the actors is very good esp Im siwan and sol kyung gu
These two lived their roles and raised the bar for this movie
Will definitely recommend this to all those who watch movies of this genre!!
Thumbs up ????
