Gonggongui Jeog (Public Enemy) (Public's Enemy) Reviews
Although the movie contains both scenes of brutal violence as well as slapstick and character-based comedy, it's all well incorporated, so it doesn't feel disjointed. The principal actor, the talented Sol Gyung Gu, does an excellent job at making a fallen cop likable enough to follow him. Due to its violence and disturbing scenes, I can't say that everyone should watch it, but as far as police thrillers go, it has a great concept and executes it well. As such, if you're looking for a story about a cop and the murderer he's trying to collar, this is as good a place as any to go.
Chul-joong is a ruthless detective whose life is turned upside down when his partner commits suicide. He is now forced to work solo. His first case as a detective on his own involves a murderer who seems to brutally slay random people. Chul-joong quickly identifies the murderer, a wealthy businessman, but can?t seem to pin anything on him. As Chul-joong becomes more and more fed up, he may take the law into his own hands.
?What type of cock-a-doodle crap is that??
?What does that mean??
Kang Woo-Suk, director of Another Public Enemy, Public Enemy 3, Hanbando, Two Cops 1 & 2, Bedroom and Courtroom, and Happiness has nothing to do with School Records, delivers Public Enemy. The storyline for this picture seemed straight out of the Dirty Harry genre. The character development was first rate, the action scenes were solid, and the script was superb. The soundtrack was also well selected.
?Why would a detective place his own excrement on evidence??
Public Enemy is a film I happened to come across at my mother-in-law?s house. After reading the synopsis, I had to see this picture. I didn?t have high expectations for this movie; however, this film blended Dirty Harry with Ichi the Killer. I will now try to obtain the entire trilogy. The only drawback for this film is that it ran a little long; but overall, this is a magnificent action film that I consider a must see.
?How could a motherfucker like that become a cop??
