Detective Choi Hyeong Gu has been chasing a serial killer for years. One day, as he comes face to face with him during a chase, the killer slashes his face. Several years later, once the status of limitation have passed, the killer, Yi Du Seok, reveals his identity and publishes a detailed book about his killings, saying he is repenting for his crimes…
I finally saw it! It’s a rather dark movie, respecting the codes of a good thriller. The story line is solid and balanced between talk time and action time. I find Jeong Jae Yeong very good at showing the different faces of his character. Kim Yeong Ae and Park Shi Hu are also excellent. The action scenes are well done, in particular the chase in the beginning and the car chase. Both are very well filmed. I like some of the transitions from one sequence to another. They are nicely thought of, a little bit like the ones in Sunny. Overall, it’s a rather well done movie that delivers what it promises. You should try it if you don’t mind a few bloody scenes.
