Made in 2001 this is from director Jin Jang who gave us the marvellous `Welcome to Dongmakgol' and got me into Korean cinema. We meet four young guys in Seoul who are hired killers. They do have a code of sorts but never say no to a job offer. They can be quite inventive about how they dispose of people but that is usually due to the wishes of the hirer themselves.

It is narrated by the younger brother of the group's leader and we follow them on various assignments as well as getting involved in their domestic affairs which includes affairs of the heart. We also have the cops - as you have to in a sort of crime thriller. Whilst these upholders of the law can be a tad inept at times they are also dogged, determined and not all that honest. This is not an action fest but there is a fair bit of it on show and some rather good car antics. The cinematography is as ever excellent, but it can be missed in all the action.

The humour is also quite good and actually well observed. The acting is a mish mash of basic to the rather moving and along with everything else that gets thrown into the pot, there is even some pathos. The sub titles could have been better and include typos and the like but that does not detract from the quality of this film, which has never received that much attention, which is a shame. If you like a bit of Korean cinema then you will not be disappointed in this.

"Guns and talks" is a comedy from Korea from 2001 about four young assassins who live and work together as a team, almost like brothers.

At the beginning of the film, a criminal "Tak mun-bae" is released from police custody, following the murder of a key witness to his prosecution, by the four killers. As the story develops, the police detective Cho who has been unable to prosecute Tak, sets about manipulating the four killers into believing that Tak was responsible for the attempted murder of one of them. In an attempt to have them then kill him. That, in itself, sounds like a great Korean crime film idea! Unfortunately here, the idea is not particularly skilfully executed, along with it being jumbled in with a number of other side stories, which take up most of the film. The gun play is slick but quite minimal (which made a nice change), with more of a focus on the four main characters and I enjoyed the banter between them. I could see how is was intended as comedic, I just, personally, didn't find it funny and the story was not compelling enough for me.

It is very well made (the "Hamlet" scene looks great), the cast are all likeable and it goes along at a jaunty pace, so if you light Korean films like I do, younmight want to give it a try. This one just didn' grab me, personally.

On the face of it we have four brothers who run an assassination business from home with the eldest trying to prevent the youngest from actually shooting someone ("Why can't I have a gun??). The jobs they undertake are pretty spectacular and rival the best that a Hollywood blockbuster could bring to the screen. It has a well-written script/plot and is a well produced movie overall.

It gradually dawns on you as you watch the film unfold that there a humourous, almost farcical, sub-plot running throughout the movie that greatly adds to its entertainment vlaue. The brothers are so busy running the family business that the only woman in their lives is the news-reader on the television and they sit, open-mouthed, hanging on every word that she utters. Inevitably, love starts to intrude and disturb their smooth-running routine. The director manages to keep a light touch on all aspects of the plot - from the deadly business they carry out; the blood and gore you might expect from this kind of movie; to the battle with the police to avoid capture and the romantic sub-plots to deliver a very entertaining and watchable movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Action/Comedy-if you know what to expect. . . 22 July 2008
By Garvinstomp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Guns and Talks really is a fantastic film. First off, let me explain the main reason that people have a negative reaction to this film. There are two reasons that people don't like movies. The first is that the film is really just not very good. The second is that the film wasn't what was expected or doesn't fall into the respective tastes of the viewer. Guns and Talks falls into this second category.

When I was looking to buy the film and reading official reviews around the net, many reviewers likened the film to Tarantino and Guy Richie. Unfortunately, the similarities are only in the concept. 4 assassins that are friends and live together struggle with the conflicts of their job and their personal lives and all the shenanigans that ensue. Sure, I could see QT of GR pitching it. But that is where the similarities end.

You don't get the trademark QT dialogue or the hyper-stylized, ultra cool GR universe. It's far more low key than that, and also a bit more straightforward. People have been disappointed because it didn't have ultra-slick camera work and larger-that-life characters like a Woo film. But this film isn't trying to do any of those things. Reviewers just like getting their reviews quoted, so by sticking some popular movie titles or director names in their review, it gives the review a better chance of being used. Ok, enough about that.

The movie is very good. It is funny. There are some memorably funny moments, despite reading the subtitles or listening to the dub. The humor does translate well. There is a lot of subtle humor that you have to be paying attention to catch, it's not just a bunch of sight gags. They do some interesting things with the voice over, as well as using multiple screen panels to show lapsing of time and potential actions. Very creative.

The story itself is interesting and we see the 4 main characters interact with each other and their jobs, all the while hiding pieces of their personal lives, some mixing business and pleasure, and how their friendships make them stronger. It's also nice to see how the different personalities affect how they perform their assassin duties. They all have their own style.

There are some great scenes. The Hamlet scene is truly magnificent. The music mixed with the imagery and the action is just an absolutely fantastic scene that will stick with you long after the movie is over. It's not so big as to overshadow the entire movie, but it is a standout. This is the movie that "The Big Hit" could have been if "The Big Hit" wasn't so bad.

The Koreans have really been on a tear making some great movies. From "The Host" to the Vengeance Trilogy (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Lady Vengeance) and this film, Korean cinema has really stepped up in the new millenium.

So if you're looking for an action/comedy that really is funny, has some cool action, is a great story, but never takes itself too seriously, this is one of the best.

Very funny movie. It would have made a very entertaining tv series. BBC should pick up the storyline. The actors are very good. English subtitles are great. You need to hear the actors speaking to pick up on the ques. Regarding delivery - very fast and the DVD was in good shape.
