A remarkable silent performance from the leading male character!,

This review is from: Bad Guy [DVD]  (DVD)
The 'Bad Guy' manages to say nothing for well over an hour. When he finally talks we discover (accidentally) that he has a shrill, silly voice that does not match his brooding character.
This a great little film with a MASSIVE problem. The makers seem to think it's likely that a sweet high school girl would become a thief and a prostitute, and remain in this profession 'and' fall in love with the man who put her there!
Bad Guy himself is Lazarus! He is stabbed through the gut with a sheet of glass and later repeatedly stabbed with a knife. On both occasions he is on his feet, fully recovered in no time at all. Ludicrous.
Despite this it is great entertainment and strangely absorbing, but the Koreans and Japanese need to learn that humans are not immortal - maybe it's that Samurai/Kamikaze (or the Korean equivalent) legend they just can't shake off!
(Same thing in 'Bittersweet Life', the hero lives through half a dozen certain death attacks including a machine gunning!)
Worth watching never the less! (despite the fact that the ending is awful, as if they just needed an ending, any ending... )
