Reviews about Assassination

J. Sone
great movie

Great move. I don't know if it's historically correct since I'm not a history buff, but the plot was great and the acting was fantastic. One of the best K movies I've seen in a while.

Strongly recommended

Probably one of the best movies I have ever seen. Really intense throughout and no scenes to throw out. Amazing!!

Action packed and great feel for Korean history.

Great movie. The story keeps your attention. Acting is outstanding. Product is perfect.

great movie

Awesome move-must watch if you like korean movies-well actually watch it if ou like movies period.


Interesting plot, great actors, cool action sequences. At first the plot's complexity is a bit overwhelming, so I found myself occasionally rewinding for a few seconds in order to make sure I understood what was said. Some of my friends who saw this in theaters said they had trouble keeping up with what was going on. I've seen that some people call the film a weak commentary on the politics of the time, but I prefer to simply enjoy its value as a fun action movie (which is how it appears to be intended).Highly recommended!

Very Good Movie

An excellent movie. The subject of Japanese atrocities in pre-WWII Korea has been taboo for South Korean filmmakers for too long. This film has finally broken into that subject matter. Not a perfect film, but well worth my time.
