  • The growing bodycount makes it that much harder to care, but the story is so hard to swallow that our disinterest almost works to its advantage by the end.

  • Perhaps my love for the original clouded my vision for this version, but damn if I didn't spend more time looking at my watch than I did at the screen.

  • Believer doesn't add up to much because Lee and Chung essentially tried to improve something that was already perfectly unsettling.

    Jun 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The action sequences are unspectacular but effective. "Believer" has a well-told, entertaining story...

  • Lee Hae-Yeong's gripping retelling of Johnnie To's "Drug War"...stands on its own and is different enough from the original to make it less a clone and more of a genuflection.

    Jun 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Johnnie To's gritty mainland crime epic "Drug War" (2012) is given a slick and mostly effective South Korean re-tooling in "Believer."
