A good recommendation for making people scream and laugh out of excitement, particularly due to creative stunts and escape ideas.

Unfortunately not bad guys but bad movie. The storyline is simplistic and quite predictable and the movie starts out slow when introducing the characters and their backstories. The characters at some point can be annoying especially the lady No-soon. The action and fight sequences are fantastic, and fun to watch but they’re very far-fetched especially toward the climax where they take on at least a hundred henchmen. The villains are clichèd but are terrifying and threatening enough so that does the job. The cinematography is good; it captures the intensity and struggle of the fight scenes well with some close up and long shots. The soundtrack and effects are satisfactory. And the performances are all good. Lazy evening, good pop corn, this is the right movie to add to the mix. It has a good balance of deadpan comedy and over the top action, it has the usual Korean production values and a great roster of well known faces delivering manichean characters, no risks of brain clusters but a definitive zygomatic exercise. To sum it up, if you’ve done your monthly duty of high brow movie going, treat yourself to this couple hours of pure entertainment.

Great performance, interesting plot, the fight action scenes.
