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?

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.

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.

**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:

Mother
The man from nowhere

Warning: This is a Korean movie with English subtitles. Despite the obvious flaws in this movie, it's still a great watch. A serial killer is on the loose and is being stalked by a police officer. There is a confrontation that doesn't end well for the officer. Years later, the serial killer writes a book confessing to all the murders. He does this because there is a statute of limitations for his crimes. Women and the media are entranced by the good looking killer. The officer wants justice. Or is it revenge? The families of the victims want revenge and plot to kidnap the killer. But then there's another twist during a televised debate where a third party comes forward to threaten the claims of the killer. There is a great ambulance chase scene, great acting, and a great plot twist. I'd love to see someone do an American version, but I don't know how they'd get around the obvious roadblocks in our justice system. But judging how bad American versions of foreign films are, perhaps they should leave this classic alone. This time, the $3 fee is worth it. I highly recommend this movie.

I've been on a great ride with movies I've watched lately. This Korean gem is no exception. A serial killer murders 10 or 11 women, you'll see, after the statute of limitations run out the killer comes forward with a book he has written on the subject but the law can't touch him. I will not say more about it but this totally loved the actors, loved the dialog, loved the action, loved the suspense and loved, loved, loved the ending...they got me good. Give this movie a chance, I still say Asian films are the best! I'm pretty sure some writer here will steal the idea but it still won't be as good.
