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 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.
