  • Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film A Taxi Driver

    I saw this recently at an exclusive screening in London. Such is the star power of Kang-Ho that 90% of the audience were Koreans taking time off their trip to visit the cinema in the middle of summer! The two leads have amazing chemistry, and the plot, based on a true story, is paced nicely. But like most high budget Asian cinema it all gets a bit wacky fantasy towards the end, and quite laughable.
