Movie: A Hard Day (15)
This is one of the most tightly scripted action thrillers from South Korea. No doubt why it won so much acclaim all over. The script is quite new and refreshing, and it makes for a perfect watch. In other words, the film is a perfect masterpiece because it easily manages to engage and absorb you in its atmosphere, and it's a film which is very easily likable.
A HARD DAY is perfectly scripted, rather so much that you won't get deviated from watching the film, and if some interruption happens between watching it, you might even get angry and start shouting. It's one of those films which don't let you move. Even if you move, you will not feel good to leave it. That's why I finished it in just one viewing.
Director Seong-hun Kim has done a marvellous job as he handles both the direction as well as writing departments in a very professional manner. He has done his best in telling the story with full force, and has provided plenty of entertaining elements to keep you engrossed.
Sun-Kyun Lee is an actor to watch out for. His performance creates a strong impact and after a point it doesn't seem he's acting at all. It's a natural act by him. Another round of applause to Cho Jin-woong: he's menacing at times and his performance is quite effective. Same for the rest of the cast.
The thrills are quite chilling and the action, superb. The cinematography is excellent in many shots, especially the action scenes. The background score is quite pulsating and increases the excitement from time to time.
That said, A HARD DAY is a mindblowing action thriller which has plenty of surprises to offer to viewers, especially those expecting just another action or thriller film. It's something you won't have seen before, and this film undoubtedly increases the respect for South Korean cinema in my eyes.

Movie: A Hard Day (15)
I'm an avid South Korean movie watcher. It's getting to a point where I'm seeing a least 1 per week.
There's a reason for that, they're great movies, really great movies.
The funny twist that I see on many of these police movies is that the police corruption, including the main character is considered as a norm. There is no glorifying the main character as a hero, standing above the dirty sea untarnished. He is just as dirty as the rest.
Again, a similar plot lines that runs through here is the main character is not the most likable character. Also it's more a story on a man who just happens to be a police officer rather than a police story.
These are things that have popped up quite a few times in other South Korean thrillers I've seen and it still has not gone stale.
The quirky, dirty, off beat, stylized, South Korean action movie is incredibly refreshing when placed up against the rest of the world.
This is a great movie, doesn't get into my top ten of South Korean movies but it's getting harder and harder to get into that top 10. With all the fantastic movies out there a great movie doesn't make the cut.
I read a couple reviews where they mention it's also a comedy where you will have good laughs. I can assure you there is absolutely nothing to laugh with in this movie. It's not a comedy and I don't get why people would write such things. But it's certainly not a bad movie. It's a movie full of twists and suspense. A crime thriller that will entertain you from the first till the last second. It deserves a solid seven stars rating and I would even score it a bit higher if it was not for that terrible language that is Korean. I wonder if they think the same about our languages. Well at least that's my point of view about Korean. It just sounds like they are always mad when they speak. It's not the first South-Korean movie I saw and it won't be the last. They make really good movies and I will just get over it that I don't like their language. The cast is also good. Sun-kyun Lee is a good actor as well as the others. I wouldn't read too much about it before watching it so the story won't get spoiled.
