A joke
21 April 2017 | by peterxnxnSee all my reviews

After a few months even I'm crying after the time wasted to see this stuff. A mixture of (what?): body lotion, scented hair gel, some uranium, french perfumes, goulash, absurd stunts, syrupy kisses, whatever. Strong cut scenes (being imperfect anyway), lustrous actors, the feeling that they come from marketplace at their headquarter, fashion parade at the end of the series , unbelievable acts, a Kim Tae-he looking towards nowhere in many crucial points. What? A nuclear attempt? With the most unbelievable pretext? What a joke! All the series seems a huge, monumental joke; of bad taste. The actor Lee Byung-Hun is blank as always. For me, he never rises to convey an extraordinary state of life. Only the actor Jeong Jun-Ho saved a bit this messed movie. And actress Kim So-Yeon, yep, she really performed OK. I have all my respect for art and the work in movies but we are here, this years 2000 plus and this movie has not a valid message.
