It's a ton of fun, a totally irresistible tale of gambling, greed, love and violence. With gorgeous actors, designer clothes and thrilling action, it's fast-moving (even at 2 hours, 20 minutes) popcorn entertainment.

The twists and turns continue until the very end of Choi's mesmerizing, high-energy romp, whose 139 minutes zip by like a round of speed poker.

Audience Reviews for Tajja

Fun, good cast, it does feel that it takes way too much time in telling the story, but the characters are well written and engaging. Kim Hye-Su made me touch myself several times.
