I gotta admit, the last reviewer was pretty much spot on with his/her own complaints about this movie. To sum it all up, it really is a pretetious cheap movie that really isn't worth seeing and is basically a waste of time. It's no wonder why Hyun Bin would turn down the offer to play a role as the protagonist in this movie. The movie is so bad, that no one except the women that have nude scenes put any effort into it. All the other actors just didn't seem to care and the acting goes from mundane to just awful. Sure, being a a dark underworld of the 70's era can change people. But it's another thing when the actors just didn't seem to care. The editing is bland and there just isn't any hook to the story what so ever. What this movie shows, is just manipulative gangsters and sleezy corrupt politicians trying to use one another. Which is fine when it comes to a movie form, but it's all so boring and most scenes just didn't seem necessary. I was expecting a good era film with gangster elements, but got a cheap knock off. The fact that there wasn't a single character I could get even slightest bit attached to doesn't help the score either.
