overlong but technically valid portrait of a gangster without qualities. creepy finale
The shapeless face of corruption, disguised as "family ties" strike a nerve in this sharp deconstruction of a life form of millions of people all over the world. Another great performance from Choi Min Sik.
Choi Brando is a lot better than the original
Choi min-sik gives an amazing performance in this film. The dynamics of familial respect and relationships continuously takes centre stage. Gruesome violence is kept to a minimum compared to other Korean action movies.
Tension, action and humor are combined in the right proportions. Myl review:
Min-sik Choi is a fucking monster!! This movie is awesome.
