Quaracation: Korean Cinema! Part 7
"I don't even know what sympathy is."
Alright, to get it out of the way: at its core, this is a perfectly serviceable crime film.
It follows a young man, previously a promising young baseball star, disgraced upon being caught fixing games to hefty gambling profits. Immediately upon exiting the world of athletes, he's discovered by a mid-level mob boss, running a team of loan sharks, who embraces our lead's brash character and fiery fighting prowess.
As other Letterboxers (?) have noted, one refreshing aspect here is that the film never goes for the whole 'crisis of conscience' thing, nor does it depict its lead gradually going from hesitant to fully embracing crime.
