Critic Reviews for The Merciless

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (3)

  • An ultraviolent Korean crime film with plenty of swagger and visual brio, but still too generic to really stand out from the pack.

    October 26, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • South Korea has produced some jaw-dropping action thrillers in recent times, but this one badly needed a bit more wit to go with the wallop.

    October 26, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Two-thirds into the picture, the switcheroos get so ridiculous one eventually stops caring about any character.

    June 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The Merciless is a superior slice of hardboiled pulp fiction in the blossoming "Korean Noir" style.

    May 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Although there's nothing new, Byun Sung-hyun's script is multi-layered and sharp, and Sol Kyung-gu and Im Si-wan give what might have been standard fare an entertaining boost

    October 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • At one point the characters get so bored with each other and the story that they get distracted by a random background woman's butt. I didn't blame them.
