Not very good, indeed
23 April 2018 | by CyniLogicalSee all my reviews

SPOILER: All the A-list Korean actors, but sadly wasted by a ridiculous screenplay. Americans were again played the role with no conscience and blind justice. South Koreans had kao-tau to the Americans, covered up the horrible serial killer from the North Korea. And North Koreans also got no conscience and turned a blind eye to the serial crimes as long as the guy's father was still in power. South Korean Police high ranking officers got no conscience either, so the real detective who did the right thing was wasted for nothing to gain. The whole movie is a much ado about nothing circle, just telling a ridiculous story, but there's one thing to learn from this film, especially to our men, you and me:

Never insult another guy's impotency publicly, if you do, you might pay a very high price later.
