Critic Reviews for The Attorney
A familiar yet compelling South Korean courtroom drama, propelled by Song Kang-ho's strong performance as an unlikely hero.
What makes writer-director Yang Woo-seok's feature debut special is how it handles this shocking incident with verve, style, and humor.
Just when a viewer is lulled into believing "The Attorney" is a lighthearted comedy about a doofus of a lawyer, this powerful South Korean feature takes a sharp turn toward brutal political thriller.
The Attorney features a powerful, energetic performance by Woo-Seok.
Audience Reviews for The Attorney
Those déjà vu yet familiar scenario is one thing. Despite occasionally melodramatic, its general light-footed tone is a great advantage.
Good legal drama, interesting story/background. Gets a little too melodramatic as it goes along, but overall is very satisfying.
Yang Woo-seok's politically charged The Attorney can be a bit overly-sentimental throughout the court scenes, but the revolutionary message still manages to bring a few tears to you eye. Chronicling the conflict and fear between North and South Korea in the 1970s-80s, the sociopolitical commentary expressed in this film is second to none. An incredible drama that even people ignorant of the political issues it's dealing with will enjoy.
