Absolutely corrupted mayor and his slavery police detective together ruining the justice.
This story is sort of the real in Corea. Too many politicians are evil and the rotten police men support them in many ways. They even try to blast the city gas pipeline and policemen never investigate about the fire on the city gas pipeline despite the firemen blamed and ordered to investigate.
This movie is realistic in those ways of Corean lives and so interesting and exciting film noir as well.
The car chasing scenes are some of the best cuts in the years! Even only that car chasing cuts must be able to pay back enough of your time.
Asura is surely the best Corean gangster film in the years!
