Audience Reviews for City of Damnation (Yugamseureoun-dosi)

Also known as "Sorry for the City" or "The Deplorable City" - This is basically the Korean version of the now-classic HK film "Infernal Affairs." While the plot is similar with it's Mole vs Mole take on things, we do get that unique Korean cinema experience of some comedy and slapstick humor as opposed to the source material's mostly serious nature. The differences made it watchable and the characters were all well acted out, making for a good time even if the plot was a little too close to Infernal Affairs. The ending leaves some things still open so are we getting a Yugamseureun-dosi 2???
