Kudos!!! real powerful acting, roller-coaster of emotions and astonishing visuals!
22 November 2012 | by TheGipsySee all my reviews

This one is my first review, the only reason is that there is not much attention on this movie.

Namless Gangster, as usual, Min-sik Choi is filled with passion, and your acceptance to his personality in this movies isn't any different from Oldboy, and I Saw The Devil, you can't just stop love to despise him and still, feel sorry for him, this is a hell of a role and he just took it to the maximum, loved every second of it.

Jung-woo Ha, on the other hand, nailed it for me, the progress and development of this character through the movie is simply amazing, I always admired this guy, and after this one he just made it so clear, that he can just be as catchy as any other superstar actor in the universe, with his "Gangster" mood, this was simply incredible.

The movie, is a Korean Gangster flick as you guys call it here, still I find it underrated, but maybe due to the fact that it is considered a new movie and still needs time, the atmosphere, the progress, the conflicts in interest, and the personal feelings, they all come in a way that will keep you through a roller-coaster of emotions! Loved it and I recommend this one!
