Frustrating. Na diminishes the strong aspects of The Chaser (the tension/suspense; the efficiency of plot; the tight, exciting pacing) and amplifies the little niggling problems I had with that first movie into giant roadblocks to my enjoyment. At several points it seems like he's trying to make events deliberately implausible as some kind of artistic statement, but my suspension of disbelief flew out the window during that first foot chase (something that he's inexplicably decided will be his directorial signature, though considering how shoddy his attempt at a car chase turned out it's probably a good idea) where the main character gets chased by the cops from The Blues Brothers, outrunning cars on straight stretches of road without breaking a sweat. Up until that point it's tense, interesting, compelling...and then the whole movie shifts gears and for the next two hours everyone's stabbing each other and chasing each other at superhuman speeds for extended periods of time for reasons not entirely clear to me, and being either unbelievably incompetent or unbelievably competent, depending on what the plot demands. I'm giving it props for presenting a cool scenario and a tense first act, but where I thought it was going (how's he going to do this in 10 days while also searching for his wife, are the two things connected, and what will be the implications when he either fails or succeeds?) was much more interesting than the overlong and chaotic clusterfuck of superhumans murdering henchmen it ended up going with. I'm disappointed in Na, and my excitement for The Wailing has diminished quite a bit.
