  1. HKFanatic's rating of the film Asura: The City of Madness

    "Asura" boasts one of the most unlikable protagonists the hard-boiled detective genre has to offer: a dirty cop who's on the take, cheats on his wife while she's on her deathbed, and whose catchphrase is "Kiss my fat ass!" The film pits him against a sleazy Mayor who's somehow even more reprehensible and a determined Special Prosecutor, and the ultra-bloody denouement is mostly worth the dreary journey to get there.

    How I love to see every characters feel into the madness. There is much violence than I've expected and of course, dark humors. I thought it just will be an another Korean movie with violence and everything, but it has its own charm tbh

    Deftly plotted Korean actioner that provides an interesting take on greed, betrayal and politics in its examination of a corrupt cop. The policeman in question finds himself caught between a ruthless mayor and a just as vicious prosecutor trying to bring that mayor to 'justice'. Incredibly violent at times with a final act guaranteed to leave one speechless. Highly recommended for lovers of Asian cinema.
