646f9e108c An expert safe-cracker has 40 minutes to steal slush funds hidden inside a customs building.
If one were to say that there are one too many heist films, hardly anyone would disagree. But &quot;one too many&quot; is hardly a deterrent and, rightly so, it shouldn&#39;t be. The &quot;how&quot; of a piece can lift the most generic, trope-ridden, cookie-cutout film, book, play or what have you.<br/><br/>The Technicians, although boastful of the tropes of the genre, is not one such film. <br/><br/>Even if this were the very first of such movies you&#39;ve encountered, it would hardly take your breath away. It may leave you in confusion at the unsatisfactory feeling playing in your mind but apart from that, it serves nothing more. Translation: if you watch it, it&#39;s all right; if you don&#39;t, it&#39;s all right.<br/><br/>Admittedly, the movie packs twists and turns but not enough to fully distract the audience from the dastardly surface and unequal development of its characters. 3/4 way, the writer seemed to have remembered to finally make known to the audience some glimmer of motivation for the lead Ji-Hyuk. Before this, we are expected to be invested in a character solely for his debonair ways and unfaltering bravery. <br/><br/>The sacrifice of character development, interaction and audience investment for the sake of a weaving plot leaves The Technicians desperately wanting for some depth.<br/><br/>This is not to say that the piece lacks its moments --there are many well-executed and beautifully shot sequences that may have resonated more had I been remotely invested in the fate of these characters.<br/><br/>Many will be watching this for Hallyu star Kim Woo-Bin, and if that&#39;s your sole motivation, by all means, this movie may satisfy. <br/><br/>A movie of wasted potential, a cast that tries to give life to one-dimensional characters (and barely succeeds) and a denouement that rushes in, surprising no one.
By now, Hollywood has pretty much defined a template for capers, one which director Choi Dong-hoon parlayed to both critical and commercial success in &#39;The Thieves&#39; three years ago. Kim Hong-seon&#39;s sophomore feature doesn&#39;t stray much from formula, and so it is even more disappointing that it is this mediocre. Yes, that a caper is boring is almost criminal, and indeed &#39;The Con Artists&#39; leaves its audience disengaged from start to finish, no matter Kim&#39;s attempt at trying to keep his flagging action comedy pacey.<br/><br/>Rather than an ensemble, Kim gives too much credit to lead actor Kim Woo-bin&#39;s character Ji-hyuck. First introduced as a safe-cracking whiz next to Go Chang-seok&#39;s bumbling counterfeiter Goo-in, Ji-hyuck becomes the team&#39;s only source of intelligence, devising a plan to stay ahead of his latest employer, the ruthless mob boss Captain Cho (Kim Young-chol). So clever is he that Goo-in need serve no other purpose than to be his comic foil, and his other associate, Lee Hyun-woo&#39;s Jong-bae, no ostensible use even as a top hacker whom Ji- hyuck recruits to join his team. It&#39;s one thing to be the Danny Ocean of this heist, but quite another to be Ocean&#39;s Eleven all in one, which is what Choi has made Ji-hyuck out to be.<br/><br/>Anyhow, as far as set-ups go, Ji-hyuck gets into Cho&#39;s crosshairs when the former robs the latter&#39;s jewellery shop, making off with millions worth of diamonds. Cho uses that burglary to hold Ji-hyuck hostage in order to
