The film is pretty short by Korean standards, running around only 90 minutes. There are numerous plot holes, impossible situations, and lots of melodrama. That being said, the film also has a number of redeeming qualities that in my opinion merit a viewing. The action is gritty, realistic, well edited, and well directed, which I imagine is really the point of the film. There are also a few memorable scenes and some creative satire of Korean corporate culture, which is pretty funny if you have some background knowledge of it. But yes, the action really is the highlight of this film.
