a5c7b9f00b Based on a true story and a legendary Korean novel, this movie follows Detective Oh (superstar Lee Jung Jae) and his investigation into the mysterious murder of a North Korean. His investigation leads him to a diary, which was written by a nun who - along with her boyfriend - helped lead the escape of North Korean POWs held captive during the Korean War. Detective Oh eventually becomes emotionally involved with the case and pursues the writer of the diary and her long-lost boyfriend, hoping to crack the case and learn more about the story of the POWs.
A man is found murdered in a river and a young detective Oh (Lee Jung-jae) is put on the case. The clues lead him to Geoje Island, a location for a prisoners of war camp after the Korean War. And slowly the tale of political prisoners, dirty soldiers and two star- crossed lovers starts to unveil.<br/><br/>Like most Korean thrillers, the film is amazingly dark both in tone and in visual style. Urban grittiness at its worst. Or best, depending on your tastes. What elevates this particular thriller above its peers is its central mystery, which is apparently at least somewhat based on a true crime case. The details and characters are both oddly fitting and grounded in reality, especially the PoW events, yet outlandish and weird enough to keep it interesting and lend it this strange aura of plausibility.<br/><br/>That being said, some of the events are convoluted and the whole film, had it been entirely fictional, would likely have been a bit more streamlined. Not all of the players in the story are properly introduced or focused on, though the main cast is very, very good. Likewise, the action scenes are decent, but feel a bit downplayed, compared to usual Korean norms – once again, most likely due to the want to stick to real events.<br/><br/>Overall a decent film and one of the most realistic Korean films I&#39;ve seen. Also one of the best Korean thrillers. Definitely worth checking out if you&#39;re looking for something with an edge.
While this film&#39;s &quot;two movies in one&quot; structure has a lot of potential, it is probably the main reason the movie doesn&#39;t come off better. It spreads itself too thin, and ends up being only sporadically effective. The present-days police story segments are rather bland; the investigative process isn&#39;t handled with much (for lack of a better word) flair, and Detective Oh, other than unexplored hints of &quot;cop on the edge&quot; syndrome, isn&#39;t much more than a handsome tough guy. Time that could&#39;ve been used on character or plot, or excised completely to keep up the pace, is used on well-executed but pointless action scenes involving apprehending characters whose involvement is only tangential. The flashback scenes fare somewhat better as they aren&#39;t something we&#39;ve seen a million times, and are also responsible for the film&#39;s highlight, an escape from a prison camp. It also seems to be the part the director was most interested in, given how much flashier it is than anything before or after it. One wishes that Bae had taken as much care with scenes in offices and cars as he did with scenes about people being cut down. Unfortunately, the flashbacks overall are too rushed to really flesh out the characters, and tend to wallow in slightly excessive melodrama, which isn&#39;t helped by the not-bad but utterly generic score. The resolution is actually fairly surprising, and could&#39
