    A very very colorful movie. Also interesting for the South Korean scenery. I think this is the first SK film I've seen.

    The print was with subtitles but I can pretty much tell the acting was not so good. The main character was pretty bad in fact. In a Jackie Chan way only he wasn't supposed to be a caricature.

    It could be worth a gander if you are into foreign films. BTW, midway through this movie the color shifted and took on a green hue. Not sure if that was just the version I saw, if it was intentional, or if it was just poor filmmaking.
