Na Hong-jin South Korea, 2008

Tyler Aikens's rating of the film The Chaser

Saw it tonight after having seen it when it came out in 08. Not nearly as thrilling or intelligent as I remembered it. Many plot holes and unbelievable coincidences in the story that just don't seem plausible in a big, busy city like Seoul. I know this was made in criticism of the justice system in Korea, but the entire film rides on the cops being retarded beyond belief. Removed from favorites.
