A Special Lady Review: Nothing "special"!
22 March 2018 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: A Special Lady (18): Action/Crime - Korean

Positives:

- Kim Hye-soo steals the show with her stellar act and excels in some action scenes. Lee Sun-kyun impresses even more with his insanely terrific act.

  • The action scenes are decently shot.
  • The film is quite entertaining in its last 30 minutes. Some sequences at this time are really very well executed.
  • The climax is quite good.


Negatives:

  • The film is very slow and the story takes too long to pick up, almost when it's too late.
  • Editing is decent at 90 minutes, but it could've been edited even more as the first 30 minutes are a complete washout. Character development takes too long and the slow beginning was a major reason towards putting this movie on hold for long.
  • The film drags in many portions and the action takes too long to happen.


Repeat value: No

A SPECIAL LADY is all gloss but almost no substance. Watch it for some decent action scenes and performances, but don't expect anything special.
