Manly and tough guy Korean movie from the 90's
This is known as a classic Korean action movie. It's actually quite outdated now and I wouldn't really recommend it now. But when it first came out, I thought it was really cool as a kid. So I have to give it some credit for that time period. But watching it now, I just see so much flaws about this movie. And it's not because of the cheesy aspects of it. But it's a movie that makes a very simple story overly complicated because of the poor pacing and editing. This movie could have been shorter, but is longer than it should be because characters just lingers and stares at stuff for a lot of the time. I know it's to show the characters emotions and feelings but come on, this isn't suppose to be an Asian drama series. What this movie tries to do is copy "A Better Tomorrow" except without guns and rely more on fists. And most of the fight sequences are actually quite impressive because of the rawness, despite some flashy kicks. Thanks to Jung Doo Hong, who is this legendary Korean stuntman and stunt choreographer. This is also the IT movie for Choi Min-Soo. Overall this is a tought guy manly movie that is worth a watch only if you want to know more about and watch classic Korean movies from the 90's.
