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 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.

I've seen good Korean movies, and I've seen VERY good Korean movies... this one is VERY good. The idea of the movie isn't too original, but it doesn't matter because the actors are great (i.e Shin Hyun-Joon) and there's plenty of great humor. This movie made me laugh harder than almost any "comedy" I've seen.
There's not much camera trickery, but the movie is still very stylish and looks good enough. Even tough the movie is about killing other people (well... that's not the POINT of the movie), I found this movie to be fun, heartwarming and smart. It's not like the Tarantino (or Tarantino-wannabe) movies, where every character is a very ANNOYING person and you can't relate to ANYONE on screen.
I recommend this movie to ANYONE, who enjoys action and humor in one shiny package.....
