Critic Reviews for Phantom Detective (Tamjung Hong Gil-dong: Sarajin Ma-eul)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Our hero's quest ... never ignites, mostly because of Mr. Lee's acting deficits.

The South Korean suspense drama is both ideal popcorn movie and morally complex revenge tale.

May 19, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The Phantom Detective is greater than the sum of its parts, and although it doesn't reach levels of greatness, it is an entertaining diversion that packs committed performances, surprising direction from Jo Sung-hee and an appealing visual style.

October 30, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

All in all, this modern take on Korea's famed Hong Gil-dong character is both hilarious and heartfelt, with great performance by lead Lee Je-hoon and youngsters Roh Jeong-eui and Kim Ha-na.

This is highly stylised film noir... but somewhere in Gil-dong's quest for lost identity is an allegory of the violent divisions and unresolved conflicts created by Korea's war in the Fifties.
