I basically got it cause the library had it and I have always wanted to see more on my LOST favorite, Yunjin Kim. She was good here, as was the whole cast, and the plot was kind of good: the bomb stuff the bad guys use is pretty amazing.
The action scenes are really good, minus the middle chase scene that must have been filmed by a guy having a seizure, and it's really violent in areas. I loved what happened when they tried to capture the female bad guy!!!
I thought the twist was quite easy to discover, especially if you just put the easiest clues together.
It just needed to be a bit tighter in story wise, as the first half can really drag in a few areas, but that final soccer match was pretty sweet!
Spoiler Alert: It was Hydra the whole time!
Should be exciting but strangely it never really gets going.
Lots of recognisable korean actors but no one stands out.
And that cover........totally and utterly misleading!
who would've expected an action flick to be quite the tearjerker as well though.
shiri has got two great actors - a younger, leaner song kang-ho and choi min-sik.
Typical tragic Asian cinema mixed with entirely too many shaky gun battle sequences. I sincerely hope this film does not accurately portray the marksmanship skills of South Korea's police and special forces units. I also hope that they are no where near as quick to fire into a crowd of people in real life as in this "film".
I want my 2 hours back.
The plot was sublime and utterly interesting~
I hope Korea can have peace with one another just like Germany..
