Cast & Credits
Well, I understand why the reviews were low. Did I hate the movie? No. Did I regret watching it? Hell no. Was I dissapointed? A little. Most people complain about the story being all over the place. I disagree. It wasn't all over the place because it was clear at all times what was going on. The issue was that you understand what's going on, you just don't understand WHY this is being shown. After a while, this drags on. The movie is 140 minutes, while it could aswell have been 100 minutes.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with a huge backlog. There are many movies with this cast that are a lot better. Woo Min-ho's Inside Men, Song Kang-ho's Memories of Murder or A Taxi Driver, and so on.
