Byung-Hun Lee plays the villain of the movie. It's super obvious from the first frame of film he walks in on. It's a good performance. He's just like-able enough with a ton of sleazy snake-i-ness oozing off of him in just the right amounts. He's got a pretty boy underling, who might have paid for those looks with plastic surgery in film and is the only human character in the movie, and a nemesis in the form of a guy who looks like he recently graduated from a K-Pop crew. The casting is for the ladies here but it works well. They all got enough screen presence and charisma to drag you through onscreen graphs and the impossible job of making abstract funny money crimes visually appealing. The pretty boy accomplice is also a surprisingly good actor. I've never seen him in anything else but he can vary his tone and can hide his motives just well enough that you never know what he might do next. He can also exude a skanky quality that works well with the character.
The movie eventually becomes an action movie. It's a bit like Tom Twywker's The International in that sense but better executed and visualized, which is a huge compliment as Twywker is a bit of a genius. The action scenes work well and are edited in a way that geographic space isn't repeated vandalized like Marvel or DC film. The cinematography works well here too. It's candy colored mayhem. Michael Bay theatrics retooled for people that wouldn't be caught dead watching one of his films.
The movie isn't perfect but unlike something like The Big Short where the only thing you'll ever remember is Margot Robbie, who is always memorable, the film will stick with you. A solid car chase here. A well edited montage here. A humorous almost cartoon level of violent escalations in the plot. I got plenty more things I could mention too.
If you enjoy interaction films (ie and your okay w/ subtitles), you will LOVE this.
Each lead role was competing, and the MLM and story line is believable. excellent movie.
