We are stating the obvious: ““Assassination” & “Veteran” are not masterpieces”, but we got our money’s worth. They both are entertaining popcorn movies.
“Assassination” is a treat looks-wise both set and cast, so you don’t raise an eyebrow (or do you?) when Lee Jun Jae‘s character finds it NECESSARY to change outfits in the middle of a crucial scene like this:
We were thinking of recommending “Veteran” (we are always ready to spread the Korean Love!) to even our mothers. However, this thought lasted about 20 minutes, that’s when Korean style violence in all its “glory” kicked in.
We have liked Oh Seung Wook & Yoo Ha‘s work in the past, so we had high expectations for both “The Shameless” & “Gangnam Blues”. This time, we think CEO Joo Won should have had a meeting with them before they released these movies.
We should know better than watching a movie because of its cast. Somehow we got tricked again with “Twenty” and “Wonderful Nightmare”.
