The Thieves (Korean Movie) Impressions

One of the bigger movie hits! I’ve waiting like crazy for this because of Kim Soo Hyun. He’s really the best thing about the movie 😀

Expectations: Moderate

Verdict: Middling

Summary: In order to let things cool down from their latest heist, Popeye and his group of thieves go to Macao on a job. But the mastermind behind this job is none other than Popeye’s old partner Macao Park, who escaped with 68kg of gold several years ago on their last job together.


Thoughts: Just a disclaimer, my impressions were greatly affected by the bad quality of the subs released. I had a feeling this was an overrated movie. They did a good job with the marketing and securing such a big named cast except the story is really bland. It’s only exciting when they doing a heist, although the actions scenes were nothing fancy but the play with the camera angles make up for it.  There were also some forced sultry scenes and speaking in foreign languages, which I felt they just inserted for fanservice. Well Kim Soo Hyun was the only reason why I really watched this. He was such a hoot. He was really sexy and great. He and Jeong Ji Hyun were the only reason I really stayed on until the end.
