XyazK Jun 21 2016 3:28 am This movie is great! At first the story line is a bit fussy i would say but that is just the character introduction and as the story goes by it will draw you into it. I recommend people out there to watch this. bluefin Dec 17 2015 2:33 pm i dont really interested in korean historical drama movies, but some have caught my attention like masquerade and roaring current.
this one is not as good as them but i do enjoy watching this movie and didnt fall asleep like when i watched gabi. what good about the movie is the storyline and the rich variety of the characters. at first it looks like a puzzle but it got connected as the plot goes. all actors and actresses are superb in their acting, the movie has enough action to depict the struggle of korean freedom fighters and their strategy to battle japanese troops and assassinate certain someones.
if this is based on the true event, i kinda want to know whatever happened to the survived main characters (or should i say survivor, because everybody dies. enjoyable but not memorable enough. Erenluffy Nov 08 2015 10:35 am Assassination movie is awesome! Be sure to watch it and vote the movie! Gianna Jun is magnificent and and impressive. J K Drummond Oct 14 2015 7:47 pm There is mention of an Irish boat leaving Korea for Shanghai.
Were there actually Irish boats in Asia during the late thirties? The assassin is told to escape on it very near the end of the film. This film is more enjoyable than the John Cussak movie, Shanghai, which is set in 1941 mostly before the Jap attack on Pearl Harbor and the Philippines on December 7th (Hawaiian time. abigailbasao Sep 21 2015 6:26 am i thought i would be bored in this movie but deym so good! i didnt want to watch my love from the star before but i wanna watch it now gianna jun omo.
