Positives:

- The action sequences are exciting and delightful to watch.
- Some thrills in the beginning are induced quite well, while some simply won't work if you've seen the trailer.
- The film's running time is decent; it's not stretched too long.
- Gang Dong-won delivers a decent act, and so do others.
- Some emotional scenes work in the second half.
- Technically, the film is a pure gem. The visual effects and cinematography have been handled very adequately.

Negatives:

- The film loses momentum after a big action sequence and this is exactly where some inconsistency shows up.
- The direction is not totally up to the mark: while the first half is excellently sketched, the second one looks slightly underdeveloped. Fortunately, the film picks up momentum at a high point, thanks to the action once again.
- The character development of Gang Dong-won's character is not good in the second half. Some changes seem way too abrupt and may not go down well with all.
- The inducement of some dramatic subplots at peak moments slows down the pace of the movie.

Repeat value: Only for the action sequences .

I had too many expectations because of the film being visually catchy and action packed. But GOLDEN SLUMBER is nevertheless an engaging action thriller which keeps you engaged for the most part. It stays true to its genre and that's good enough.

The film talks about the persecution of the media and the public's willingness to condemn a man who has recently been hailed as a neighborhood hero after thwarting a celebrity assault. As a direct conspiracy thriller, Golden Slumber is best described as slickly and efficiently executed, rather than genuinely entertaining. Still, the new version of the title track of Lee Hi and Kang Seung-Yoon is an unexpected slice of cruelty that no one deserved. Joining the growing number of politically-fueled thrillers in South Korean cinema is Golden Slumber, a new adaptation of Kotaro Isaka's Japanese novel. In it, Gang Dong-won (1987, Master) plays an unpretentious henchman who becomes the target of a national hunt when he is framed by the assassination of the newly elected prime minister.
