Audience Reviews for Gonggongui Jeog (Public Enemy) (Public's Enemy)

    This was made before Korean films were a popular export and is therefore very much aimed at Korean audiences - hence the odd tone. Still good though.

    Dark humoured Korean thriller which may not be highly original plot-wise but it's unpredictable and has its own quirks that make it seem fresh and memorable. It's quite brutal and violent at times and there's a host of wacky characters that keep things entertaining during its overly long 2 hour 20 minute duration. It's a very decent offering from Korea that's recommended for fans of dark thrillers.

    <i>Public Enemy</i>, a film directed by Woo-Suk Kang, is nothing more than a traditional crime drama out of Korea.<p>The story is straightforward. There is a ruthless cop on the hunt for a serial killer. The first hour is all character buildup and, in my opinion, it is just too long. This contributes to the long run time of 2 hours and 15 minutes. Sure, it is nice to build up the characters, however it is a bit much in this film. The actual plot that I mentioned earlier doesn't begin until nearly 60 minutes in. Too long of a wait.</p><p>The film does have its moments though. There are times that will make people laugh and this is a good thing, considering the length of this picture. The violence, while not a ton of it, is quite bloody and brutal. Combine the violence with the very strong language and there is no question about an R-rating.</p><p>Kyung-gu Sol puts on a good performance as the corrupt cop. His attitude and actions make him an unlikeable hero for most of the movie and it is these same actions that spark the laughs, not the jokes. Sung-jae Lee is an appropriate villain and the two play off of each other brilliantly.</p><p><i>Public Enemy</i> is actually a decent crime thriller that just takes a bit long to get going. Still, fans of this type of film will find this satisfying.

    Well done police drama that has plenty of action and violence/gore...and large doses of situational comedy as well...terrific acting by the lead cop Chang and a worthy adversary psycho killer as well. Definitely worth a watch..and don't miss the follow up 'another public enemy' and 'public enemy returns'...all are enjoyable in this popular korean series!
