Nae-ga sal-in-beom-i-da (Confession of Murder) Reviews

  • Oct 26, 2020

    An absolutely outrageous plot with little realism, sometimes confusing tones, and too many characters, few of which who are truly likeable and end up detracting from central mystery. Nevertheless, it has its moments with its somewhat silly, but fast-paced and exciting action sequences, as well as a finale that is interesting and cathartic despite being completely unbelievable. In short, I think there was a much better film in there, one that was more succinct, better written and more focused. As a time-waster, however, ‘Confession of Murder' is serviceable.

    Jung Byung-Gil's (THE VILLAINESS) breakout film is brimming with so many great ideas and themes that it is bursting to the point of silliness. The creative editing and excellent camera work are on point, and the film never sits still enough to be boring, but even after the final twists and turns, you'll wish a few ideas stayed on the cutting room floor.

    Enjoyable, but stupid and with Sifi worthy effects.

    A lovable unique crime thriller. How do you catch a clever serial killer? This movie answers it through its ego. It's amazing how a single twist is cut into several thrilling plots. I fell in love with this flick.

    Korean movies are all over the place with their plot twists. It was alright but a bit melodramatic even by Korean movies' standards

    The movie is basically a no-brainer action thriller that defies logic without hesitation. Maybe that's the reason one of the characters is given the following line in the film: "Sir, your creative liberty is off the charts." I might have liked it better had they not dragged the ending.

    a nice little action thriller that had me surprised with a few turns that happened throughout. the acting is decent and the action scenes are pretty cool. there are also some tense moments that give you an awkward feeling and anticipate what is gonna happen. worth a watch.

    The beginning was rough and some of the jokes were not that great, but what the movie built up to was worth it in the end. It was a good twist and a decent movie.
