Critic Reviews for Detective K

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

A slapdash mixture of comedy, mystery, action and historical drama that proves diverting in spots but mostly exhausts with its genre-jumping restlessness.

March 3, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Kim Suk-yoon becomes so heavy-handed in handling the issue of Christianity that the film winds up an infomercial for the religion, complete with syrupy strings playing on the soundtrack as poor believers are beaten by soldiers.

March 3, 2011 | Full Review…

a delirious riot of odd-couple humour, political conspiracy, monster mayhem, over-the-top action and eighteenth-century detective work (complete with semi-anachronistic appearances of porn magazines, flashlights and even a Rubik's cube).
