Product Description

In Korea, murder has a statute of limitations and the time is up on a series of brutal slayings that left Lt. Choi (Jae-yeong Jeong) a broken and obsessed man, with a scarred face from their one encounter. Now, a handsome and beguiling young man has come forward, taking credit for the crimes. As the confessed-killer woos media and wins fans, Choi s rage spins out of control. Is he the killer? Can justice ever be served? And who is the mysterious J, who claims the author may not be the killer after all?

Format:Blu-ray
I've been enjoying films out of South Korean for going on two decades now. That isn't to say that I've enjoyed everything that's come out of that great nation; it is to say, however, that I'm far more interested in even their small releases than I am most American-made summer blockbusters. I've said it before, but I'll repeat it in the event that you're just finding my critical voice now: an awful lot of these foreign releases aren't shackled by the studio-enforced creative constraints killing much of the U.S. theatrical scene, and that's a huge benefit.

However, CONFESSION OF MURDER tries to blend those two worlds - create a summer tent-pole-style flick that'll bring in the masses while preserving that which makes Korean cinema its own animal. It succeeds more than it fails, but where it fails it almost veers into cartoon silliness, most of which is limited to the film's big action sequences.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you're the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

After the statute of limitations expires on a particular grisly series of serial murders, a picture perfect young man named Lee (played by Park Shi Hoo) comes forward claiming to have committed all of them except a last one long attributed to the same killer. As his penance, he's chosen to release his memoirs - detailing the highs and lows of these events - as well as make a public apology to the families.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! February 9, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Twists and turns aplenty, and some of the best camera work I've ever seen. This is an action/drama that is fantastic across the board. I had no idea what to expect when it began, but I certainly wasn't expecting one of the best movies of the year. Give it a go; you won't be disappointed.

**Spoiler Free**

First off let me say that the actual premise of the movie is fantastic and gripping. Its essentially a Cat and Mouse Mystery Thriller. But who is playing who? So much deception will make you want to know the truth and will be your main reason to even continue watching the film after you see how ridiculously out of place the action scenes are. The action scenes are so out of place in this type of film that I can only blame the Director in his choice of placing them in this type of film. It was like he didnt know what kind of film to portray. The actions scenes seem like something out of Jason Statham Movie (you know what I'm talking about if you seen The Transporter or Crank). They just seem so oddly out of place that they destroy the pacing of the movie. Some action sequences are even unnecessary. A more realistic approach would have made the movie so much better and keep the audience immersed in the plot of the story. All in All, I would recommend a watch so long as you can overlook the action scenes. 3 1/2 Stars.

Better Korean Films to watch:

Old Boy
Mother
The man from nowhere

3.0 out of 5 stars Cataclysmically appealing April 21, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
"Confession of Murder" has a fantastically gripping opening. We see Choi sitting at a restaurant while it pours down rain as he remembers his pursuit of the killer. The camera does some pretty incredible stuff perspective-wise during this foot chase. Like the camera work in "The Raid 2," the camera seems to contort itself to allow full use of dynamic angles while following these two characters. The camera slides underneath a car at one point and even seems to smash through a window as the killer jumps out of one to escape the clutches of a determined Lieutenant Choi.

But the excellent beginning only strengthens the South Korean action thriller's slow but steady building decline. The main storyline of the film is riveting, but there's this entire secondary storyline that nearly ruins everything the film has going for it. Comedy and goofy behavior has no place in a film like this, but writer/director Jung Byung-gil forcefully stuffs as much unwanted absurdity as he can into the film.

A group of the killer's victim's relatives and loved ones gather and pursue a fresh-out-of-prison private investigator to gain revenge on Lee Doo-suk, but unfortunately this ragtag faction of over trained nincompoops only muck up Detective Choi's investigation. Look no further than the unrealistic car chase in the middle of the film which features balancing on the roofs and hoods of multiple cars and hospital gurneys all while barreling down a highway. The blatant green screen shots are beyond preposterous as are the ludicrous actions of a certain knife wielding private dick.

"Confession of Murder" has a captivating primary storyline with superb performances from the short-tempered Jung Jae-young and the overconfident Park Si-hoo.
