There are some interesting ideas in this movie (setting the story within the context of North and South Korea works well), and overall, it is a decent action movie, but nothing more.
The problem is that action scenes lack intensity as does the story overall.

The original was much better.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Better Tomorrow 14 July 2012
Having come into this film blind (not seen the original) i had no preconceived ideas about what i was about to watch. A really good solid film with a gripping storyline and an ending that had my jaw hitting the floor.
Korean Cinema has really improved over the last few years and bringing John Woo into produce was a master stroke. Loved the gunfights which yelled of Woo's influence and as a mega fan of Hard Boiled this was no bad thing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad 3D conversion, terrible on 2D 20 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was very excited to watch this remake on bluray 3D but it turn out to be a huge disappointment. Obviously this film was not shot using 3D cameras but it's a bad conversion that any 3d TV can make from a 2D sources.
Ok after a few minutes I decided to switch to the 2D version included on the same disc but it was not any better. I'm sorry I wasted any money on this bad quality product.

By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
This is a Korean version by Director Song Hae-Seong, but with the collaboration of the original writer of the Hong Kong classic, John Woo. Many have complained that this does not add anything to the original and as such is inferior, however I decided to watch this with an openish mind and see what I thought, and I must say I loved it. The original is feted with shooting Chow Yun Fat to fame, starting off a rash of copycat gangster films and upping the sale of Aviator sunglasses and trench coats, so this has a lot to live up to - except about the rain coats that is, I mean Inspector Clouseu wore one.

The plot is around North Korean escapee Kim Hyeok (Jin Mo-Ju -`The Warrior' and `Real Fiction') he has been taken under the wing of a kind police Lieutenant Park and his larger than life auntie, but he also dabbles in a spot of international, illegal arms dealing. The cash he makes from that he spends trying to find his younger brother who was caught trying to escape with him and whom he left behind to face the North Korean bitter justice. This brother is Kim Cheol (Kang- woo Kim), but Hyeok has a best mate too in the shape of Yeong Choon (Seung Heon-Song) and after a deal goes very bad very quick he seeks a bungled revenge. Meanwhile little brother has escaped ben found and reunited but has refused to forgive Hyeok for abandoning him and moreover decides to become a police man putting them either side of the law.

For those who have seen the original this plays very much along the same lines, but with changes of scenery and parts of the plot. If you have not seen it then let me just say that this takes a while to do the scene setting and to pull the masks off of some of the main players. There is bags of action, and some great music too which you do tend to get with Korean cinema.
