Suspecting something fishy about Wang-jae’s death, Tae-su and Seok-hwan start investigating it, each in his own way. Their investigations lead to a land development project that Pil-ho is directing.
Length 92 minutes
An imperfect, oddly stylistic South Korean crime drama. It definitely has its own style even if it feels heavily influenced by John Woo’s cop/criminal buddy movies of the ‘80s. It rambles a little at the beginning, buy comes together midway through and the third act is pretty strong and violent.
