VETERAN (K-movie 2015)

veteran_feature2

Detective Seo Do-cheol is tough and merciless when it comes to crime. But while investigating a high-profile case, Seo finds out that arrogant young millionaire Jo Tae-oh — the third-generation heir to powerful conglomerate Sinjin Group — is pulling some strings behind the scenes. However, no matter how rigorously Seo's team pursues him, Jo always escapes with the help of his wealth and connections.

Veteran is nerve-racking in the way it masterfully mixes hardcore action, allows a brief post for a comic break, then resumes the suspense. I feel like this movie creates a new Jackie Chan chic. It was fun, poignant and has a full blown-out combat thrill with good cops and bad asses.

All the characters in this movie are not wasted. They made the story even more appealing, especially Yoo Ah In who did a great job of portraying a ruthless spoiled sociopathic heir vs. Hwang Jung Min, the hilarious and stubborn cop. Watching them fight head to head was very impressive since they have noted that "no police has ever touched one of the super rich."  You'll see how this two brutally fight with each other.

This movie has its all own blast of style and swagger. It showcases the unjust system in the world that always presenting to us, but with perfect rhythm.

Verdict: 9/10

TUNNEL (K-Movie)

After watching this movie, I wanted to avoid the tunnels if possible. I am over reacting, but just couldn’t stop thinking about it. I don’t want to be hopelessly trapped when a tunnel collapsed around me.  I hope it will never happen to anyone.

What I like about this movie is that it showed the power of humanity over the fight for survival and the genuine determination to save someone’s life even though greediness and damn politics joggled along the way.

The movie has a simple premise, but it was executed flawlessly. It was well made with a sum amount of suspense and a formula of a little twist. The acting was decent, enough for you to focus on the character, and of course, the visual effects are impressive.

Verdict. 8/10

“Lee Jung-Soo drives home for his daughter’s birthday. While driving through a tunnel that crosses through a mountain, the unthinkable happens. The tunnel collapses. When Lee Jung-Soo regains consciousness, he finds himself trapped inside his car. The car itself is buried under thousands of tons of concrete and debris. All he has inside the car are his cellphone, two bottles of water and his daughter’s birthday cake.”
