When this movie first came out, the majority of viewers criticized it for being over-the-top, hyperbolized. They assessed: politics has its ugly side, but this is too "B," too Tarantino-ish. Well years later, it turns out the movie was PG and reality was much, much worse. This movie became a weird criteria for Koreans to pit reality against and therein lies its merit.
It's true what some of the reviewers said. The subtitles don't do the script justice and some background knowledge about Korean culture helps. And honestly, if you like simple stories... go watch something else?
