Some people like it, some don't. I'm one of those who thought it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. It's like Ocean's Eleven on box cutters. It's a little realistic but less entertaining. The real downer would be the atrocious runtime and that cheesy romance. Regardless, it's an entertaining film for popcorn with your friends.
High octane thriller melding the worlds of South Korean and Hong Kong action films with varying degrees of success. The intial set-up is very good but the film seems to flounder during its casino scenes before its final half hour really delivers the action goods. Fight choreography and stunt work is quite good especially the expert wire work sequences that bring to mind Tsui Hark's "Time and Tide". Worth the watch.
