it's one of those ones were it starts out good and then it keeps getting even better. there are quite a few twists but that's okay with me.
That's what I like about ones like this. the biggest twist of all for me was the mastermind who was behind everything. my eyes
and mouth were wide open. Yes I won't spoil it for you and Yes I'll let you watch and find out for yourself.
As I've read this was also based a true story that happen to couple on a boat. but of course alot of other stuff was
thrown in to make the movie worth watching. anyway check out traffickers you won't be disapointed I wasn't.
in Korean Language with optional english subtitles
as previous costumer reviewers said there are no extras just some movie trailers from WELL GO USA
Now Young-Gyu fronts stolen goods and has fallen in love with a ticket agent at the port terminal. Her father is dying for want of an organ transplant. When she turns to a loan shark for help, Young-Gyu seeks out his old partners for one last job.
Though not technically a horror film, "Traffickers" contains a great deal of suspense, creepy atmosphere, and a host of unsavory characters. It's unusual to make the protagonist not merely an organ smuggler, but a sympathetic one. Young-Gyu is not your typical movie hero. He's not a man who's gone straight, and he expresses no apology or excuse for earning his living from illegal enterprises. Despite lapses in logic and over-dependence on coincidences,"Traffickers" holds the viewer with a brisk pace and lots of action.
In Korean, with English subtitles, "Traffickers" contains no bonus extras.
On the same ship a black market dealer Yeong-gyoo (Chang Jung Lim) travels with three passengers. Yeong-gyoo, who once retired from the underground business he would rather not talk about, is called back to do the same job for the last time. What he doesn’t know is that his last assignment involves someone he knows very well.
A 2012 Korean thriller “Traffickers” (“Gong-mo-ja-deul”) is reportedly inspired by a real-life incident about a Korean couple who got involved with an illegal human organ trafficking. I don’t know the details of the event, and I am pretty sure that artistic liberties taken in making this thriller, which is dark and gripping, but requires lots of suspension of disbelief.
Directed by Hong-seon Kim (his feature debut), “Traffickers” is a disturbing thriller supported by fine acting and effective storytelling.
The effectiveness of the film lies solely within the method in which it never leaps over the boundaries of realism throughout its 111-minute duration. The concept is somewhat unbelievable, but the way it's accomplished is remarkably realistic. The danger of getting caught is also a huge factor, but there's this element of trust that is purposely left up in the air. Who is actually working with Young-gyu and who is only in it for himself? What you think you know is completely turned upside down in the film's conclusion.
The story is never boring or uninteresting in "Traffickers," but its big reveal isn't very easy to swallow. It's supposed to be this shocking moment that the filmmakers probably aimed to affect you the same way a Christopher Nolan twist takes your breath away, but it just isn't as satisfying. It's more of an intriguing development that adds fuel to an already dying fire.
"Traffickers" is like the South Korean equivalent to "Taken" that is more imaginative in concept, but almost just as disappointing in execution. The Kim Hong-sun directed crime thriller is riveting from beginning to end with compelling performances from both Im Chang-jung and Choi Daniel, but the film loses its momentum in its final act. "Traffickers" is just physically unable to overcome the massive convoluted hurdles it constructs for itself.
