Surprisingly good movie with constantly high suspense. Dark, thrilling, well made, with strong characters and decent acting. Even has some heartwarming moments which serve as a strong contrast to the overall tone of this movie. The plot and it's logic are not flawles though, although it is not a big letdown. I like the openess and radicality of the ending.
My first introduction to Na Hong Jin. Whoah... I wasn't satisfied with the ending and kept yelling at the screen but was left wondering if that was the purpose, to beckon me into Seoul's world of dirty back streets and thread me into a web of anguish, fear, puzzlement and adrenaline. Just because.
Polar glauque, anti-héros, noir bilan de la société : un ancien flic devenu proxénète, reprend du service alors que ses filles disparaissent et réalisant qu’elles avaient rencontré le même client, identifié par son numéro de portable. Polar époustouflant inspiré de la vie du célèbre tueur en série sud-coréen Yoo Young-chul. Le film livre une énergie forte et vous tient en haleine jusqu’à la fin. Incontournable.
Just the first 15 minutes and last 20 minutes give the tension goods. The rest of The Chaser mainly trades in genre cliches in its Dirty Harry-style detective and incompetent police, as well as over-pronounced scenes of drama (IE. a syrupy musical score, with slow-motion.) Moreover, the last shot symbolizing the character as a father figure is the definition of the predictable way that its story feels stagy.
Overrated movie . I can't compare this movie with other korean movies . All movie created with hollywood action template combined with violence show ... sense of wonder is not existing in the film... there are predictable final and very simple criticism of the justice . I ' m not amazed by this movie.
Who's even more dangerous than a hard-boiled cop: a hard-boiled ex-cop pimp. Although the film depicts the hunt of a serial killer, the greatest conflict the protagonist has to face is an inner one– he has to redeem past mistakes and rethink his life. The Chaser is a gritty neo-noir thriller that held me in agonizing suspense from the beginning to the end.
