If it weren't a real incident series of scenes, I would think that it was a brutal weird series of a sick mind.On the other hand, beyond the brutal scenes which comes with the real incidents, it is a well made film, with good casting, humor and something you don't meet in the western films, no shooting!The enforcement of the law comes with no shooting and something that I still find it difficult to believe by arresting all the criminals alive as an primal target for the leading actor. Either life give us lessons or this is director's potential values for his audience.It is also quite enjoyable and keeps your interest in watching it in high levels.

Ma Dong-Seok has done an amazing job in this movie! The movie itself was a roller coaster of emotions with twists and turns all the way. After watching this you will be fist pumping everyone and looking for all movies made in Korea. The villain does justice to being hated - he is someone you hate and want all his fingers broken one by one. Great movie! Bring on the sequel!
