King ray Love love this movie can't believe it's korean . Nice twist at the ending too.

Jingga Low budget movie, boring plot, decent acting. The whole movie only involve around the hotel room, it was meh..don't waste your time watching this. 3/10

lola shisho the ending is unpredictable. I thought itwas a love story but turned out it doesnt. the plot is just so great! I love it.

Karen This movie was boring, lack of development between the characters also it seemed they lacked of budget because most of the scene were taken at simple shooting studio.

taeminfan this wasnt as bad as most comments make it seem.. it was okay. acting was good plot was a bit lacking but nevertheless if ur bored and want a movie to see this was good. the ending was unexpected and it had its memorable moments (Y)

sid I saw it on an Asiana flight to Korea and thought it was actually quite good. I especially liked Song Ji-Hyo's complete change of character in the last 5 minutes. Don't go into expecting a Bourne-type thriller, it's a comedy complete with Keystone Cops and does well as just that.

Court This film was lacking so much in plot development and characterization it is really sad. Unfortunately it was also not made up for by good acting either. I watched the movie purely for the two leads hoping that I would get an interesting story too but all I got was a bit of eye candy. The completely in-adept police force was infuriating and confusing as opposed to humorous and all in all the movie just seemed to fall flat. Of course if you're a fan of Jaejoong you will watch this movie, but other than that I would not recommend it.

Also, putting a last-second incomplete "twist for twists sake" seemed undeveloped to me.

fritzyjane If you're a Jaaejoong fan (which i am) then this is a must see! I love his acting, naturally funny. Some scenes may be dragging but they were able to pull it off with some good twists. Over-all it was good, fun to watch but it could have been more entertaining with a far better script.

jango this movie was pretty stupid and a pain to watch. .. 5/10

Thumbs up!!! An interesting movie. I could hardly bear it until the last 10 minutes. It was absolutely excruciating. Then they introduced a nice plot. Jackal...haha...I would say it is ok if one can bear till the end.

Kisu It's absolutely funny idk why some saying it's simple... the movie have a nice plot the acting was well-done by all actors and actresses. Didn't really seem like a low-budget since it is based on kidnapped and others stuff so they have too mainly focus on that certain scenario. Over-all rating I would really recommend it. ^^

Ronaldo Seems simple and low budget movie but entertaining....

Choua Is it out in the US already?

piggy the movie, first of all, was well delivered. The actors (especially bellboy and ahjumma) were very natural. Second, the plot was decent- not bad, not so great; lastly, get ready for a of twists. Overall, the movie was entertaining but it could've been better :)

OddBoy a shitty movie don't waste your time on it.
