(de) wrote: Well this is a nice surprise! Top of this fabulous cast is the very charismatic and talented Yun-seok Kim, the king of the Korean box office currently, Lee Jeong-jae whose comeback appearance is the first in over 5 years, along with many other big box office actors of Korea. This cleverly written script gives each character great amount of screen time so none of them get lost within the story and we learn about each one and why they do this for a living. This is a great film that is way cool, funny, entertaining, with lots of action. I loved the scene where they are chasing, shooting, and running (sort of) all while hanging on the side of a building. Great stuff and pure, wonderful entertainment. Now.....that's a movie!!! This one was a huge box office hit in Korea, grossing over $7 Million! Its running time is a little long, but well worth every action packed minute, with clever sexiness and wit interwoven throughout. Good time!

(us) wrote: It looked like a tale for the Americans from Japan. I would have wished it to be more universal. The main subject would also have needed more justification. The theatrical settings looked very nice and interesting.
(br) wrote: The basic plotline may be loosely derived from an all-time classic ["Out of the Past" (1947) w/ Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer & Kirk Douglas], but the director's continual use of the bright sunlight of Cozumel and L.A. washes all the noir right out of this film. Plus the satisfying, stinging conclusion of "Past" here gets replaced with a happy-sappy Hollywood Machine ending. Bridges and Ward do wiggle about as a pair of tanned & oiled-up hot-bods (on the altar of an Mayan temple, no less), but overall the steam's pretty tepid and they seem somewhat mis-cast. As tribute, Greer herein is granted a substantial role. The best delivery is James Woods, replicating his "Once Upon A Time in America" gangster mug, shot this same year. The viewer's also dealt a crowbarred-in car chase, Bridges in red Porsche vs. Woods in black Ferrari. Phil Collins' title tune constantly wafts, but far-more interesting listening & viewing is Kid Creole staging "My Male Curiosity." In 1980, Creole broke the best out of the basically obscure 1970s Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, bringing along its blending of the Big Band, Swing, Latin/Tropical and disco genres fronted by Cab Calloway-influenced showmanship. Given the 1980 birth of MTV and the music video, Creole's visuals - staccato, rhythmic dance-steps and zoot-suit shouldered outfits - had substantial influence on the subsequent crafting of Michael Jackson, Prince, MC Hammer, et. al. Little quality footage of Creole's 80s stage act still circulates, so this film serves as a rather major preservation of it. RECOMMENDATION: The hot-bods, cars, music, scenery, bad boys and gritty-business plotline - it all adds up to OK entertainment, a decent two hours. Just don't expect any suspense or noir.

(es) wrote: Spanish noir from 1955 -- suggesting that the French New Wave auteurs did not get there first (apart from Americans, who started the whole thing.) Although the movie follows the traditional Aristotelian arc of tragedy, it has enough style, cynicism, intimations of sleaze, and lowlife glimpses to qualify, I think.
