Critic Reviews for Nowhere to Hide
This is flash in the service of nothing, the proverbial sow's ear doing an indifferent imitation of a silk purse.
Nowhere to Hide may not be devoid of substance, but beneath the virtuoso finish it's rotten to the core.
Lee can't tell a story to save his life, but he's something of a visual magician, laying out glittering piles of goodies that you instinctively want to follow.
Reveals that in Lee Myung-Se Korea has a filmmaker with enough razzle-dazzle and visceral appeal to rival Hong Kong's -- and Hollywood's -- John Woo.
The film often churns with the pleasure that visual stimulation can provide and more affection for the bang-bang techniques than you're likely to see in the movies of music-video directors simply making the jump to the big screen.
Myung-se usa o seu fiapo de roteiro para nos lembrar da velha máxima de que Cinema é, de fato, Imagem; e o resultado é um filme que contrasta os personagens falhos e incompetentes a um incrível virtuosismo visual e à trilha surpreendente.
Audience Reviews for Nowhere to Hide
It's absolutely chaotic to look at with visual tricks and flashy camerawork accompanying the hard-hitting, brutal, but relatively bloodless, action and fights. It's a unique little Korean action-thriller but the plot is lacking and the cops are even more brutal than the drug-dealers they're at war with, so they don't come across as very likeable. It's fun and unique though and worth a look if you like far-eastern cinema.
Park Joong-Hoon is quite underrated, the movie has probably the most generic cop/crime story ever written, but the whole investigation is fun to watch. The slow-mo abuse could make even Zack Snyder cringe, but it's tolerable.
Brutal, funny and stylishly directed film about Korean cops tracking down a murdering gangster, creates some great characters with stunning, atypical images. Some may be shocked by the methods used by the Korean homicide investigators, as they rabidly trash human rights to accomplish their goal.
