A vigilante who calls himself "Dr. Q" is gruesomely disposing of vicious criminals who have managed to evade prosecution, due to some technicality. Each killing was captured on video and Dr. Q uploads them on to the internet shortly after each body is discovered. In between busting the usual roster of thugs and lowlifes, reckless young cop Bong and his more collected, middle-aged partner, Na, work on the case but clash with their S.T.F. counterparts, Lt. Pyo and computer whiz Kang. Pyo discovers a bug in the S.T.F. headquarters but asks Kang to keep this a secret for the time being. Further suspicious acts on Pyo's part leave Kang uncertain of his loyalty. Bong and Na, meanwhile, are assigned to work directly with S.T.F, leading to several clashes between Bong and Pyo, whose styles could not be more different. All leads point to The Ilsim Ring, a clandestine assassination squad apparently made of up of high ranking law enforcement officials.
Cast & Credits
The story is very interesting and the ideas discussed are essential and deep, but there was something lacking about the details and the presentation. The actors did a great job, especially the two male leads. Lim Won Hee was really good and Kim Min Jong was totally immersed in the character. But the plot lacked some necessary details. We know nothing of the characters and therefore find it hard to relate. The camera work and the choice of shots were not successful at all. The director tried to add a comic element through the fight and chase scenes but did not do it well.
Didn't dislike the film or find it boring at all, but you know the feeling when you're left hollow as you watch. This film is an example. Enjoyed watching serious and dedicated young Kim Min Jong of course. The last scene left me smiling which was a reason why I rated it more than I planned. I don't think I'll watch it again but I'll go through some scenes for KMJ for sure.
was excited to c Kim Min Jong and Im Won Hee work together.
had to say their acting was superb and min jong oppas every little movement was very detailed which shows how immersed into his character he was.
The plot/story was missing a lot of things, tho they have a great cast and acting skills it does not up for the missing things. some parts just felt empty and boring...
but their acting balances out the emptiness, there may be a few actors which appear in scenes for a few seconds to a minute and their acting may bring down the movie but the main cast does save the film by their acting.
i would not rewatch it if i was not a huge fan of any of the lead
(im a HUGE fan of Kim Min Jong so it would be worth it to rewatch)
