  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Luck-Key

    This is the Korean remake of 'Key of Life'. Often the Korean remake is not as good, but not in this case. They got rid of the ridiculous plot about the woman having to be married. They fleshed out the idea of the hitman becoming an actor. They didn't have to do all that stupid back and forth at the end. Most importantly though was the martial arts they added which really made the hitman more believable.
