  • The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil pulls off its familiar twists and turns with style and verve.

    November 16, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Like so many of the genre that hail from Seoul and its suburbs, this one punches well above its weight with an inventive reworking of well-worn plot tropes and slick production values.

    November 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A solid, if not quite exceptional, time-passer.

    November 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's the less animated moments where "The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil" struggles.

    June 6, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Director/writer Lee Won-tae, for whom this is only his second feature, keeps the pace moving swiftly, showing off an energetic sensibility that heralds a new voice on the South Korean film scene.

    June 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • As much fun as it is to watch Lee beat people up and strut around in shiny pinstripe suits, it's just as much of a pleasure to watch him think it all through.
