Product Description

A jaded detective on the mean streets of Seoul will stop at nothing to bring in the most enigmatic killer the city has ever seen. But Internal Affairs is dogging him, he's feuding with his superiors, and brawling with every gangster, loan shark and drug dealer he meets. After a series of inexplicable murders, the detective has latched on to the suspect, but will anyone believe that a wealthy upstanding citizen is capable of such heinous crimes? Can an embattled detective stop a killer who chooses his victims at whim? Hard-hitting thrills as police take no prisoners in their relentless search for a Public Enemy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Smithereens May 9 2006
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Woo-Suk Kang directs "Public Enemy" with a different sense of rhythm and style from our Hollywood products. His characters are vivid. There is a logical story line, punctuated with some great fight sequences. Some combat seems to be thrown in because it'd be a nice time for a fight. Sol Kyung-gu who won a Best Actor award from the Seattle Film Festival for 2003's "Oasis" plays the bumbling cop who takes bribes and would rather bash a criminal's head to smithereens rather than bring him into the station and have to do the paperwork. While all the other cops have desk drawers full of paper, his drawer contains only one pencil. Lee Seong-jae plays the heavy Gyu-hwan in the movie. He is a corporate type who is completely amoral as he wheels and deals. Unfortunately, his aging father wishes to buy and orphanage and help children rather than invest in one of Gyu-hwan's schemes. Gyu-hwan decides on the obvious solution and shows up in a raincoat on a stormy night and slashes his parents to death, thus inheriting the money. As a criminal, Lee Seong-jae is handsome and sinister. I didn't particularly understand the necessity for the male nudity in the first part of the film. We get a backward glance at Gyu-hwan in the shower performing some manual manipulation. This is followed by a hot tub scene where Chul-Choong's partner who is tattooed from head to foot showers and gets into a naked fight with his partner. That's followed by an odd scene where the tattoo cop scrubs his partner's back. Culturally, this must have a different significance in Korea. Some of Woo-Suk Kang's scene selections seemed to make the film unnecessarily long. There's a sequence where Kang Chul-Cheoong who's been put back on the street as a beat cop stops the wife of Gyu-hwan for a traffic violation. He accepts a bribe and then crumples up the money. However, the wife connection doesn't lead him toward catching Gyu-hwan; it just seems tacked onto the plot. Oh Seung-myeong and Oh Seung-tae as the father and mother of Gyu-hwan do nice jobs as their son's victims. However, while it may be a bit long, the film is filled with good characters and riveting action. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Public Enemy is hard edge drama that's funny Nov. 30 2005
By Phillip Colyette - Published on Amazon.com
I really did enjoy this picture it was funny but not a comedy. It was more drama based. The story starts off Soule, Korea with a dirty detective who never arrested anyone in his carrer. He crosses path with this sociopath. (how that happens is very funny) The detective doesn't know he just murder two people till a week later. So he's determined to prove to his superiors that he's the guy. No one takes him seriously, because they know he's a big MESS up. He not the sharpest tool in the shed, he's hard headed, and one tuff cop. He probally one of the dumbest cops around but this movie is not a spoof type movie. It have a lot of great one liners and the action isn't what you expect from a Asian movie. There in no karate, some gunplay, but a lot of people getting getting knocked off there block. All fights are street styled fighting. When I seen the detective in this movie, he reminds me of Charles Bronson as far as being tough and taking no crap from anybody. He also reminds me of Chow Yun Fat in those old Hong Kong films when he goes off on just about anybody. You'll be say he's bad a## but why can't he just do this or that to get this guy. That where some of the comedy comes in. It a different type of movie if you're tired of seeing the same old tired movies.

Wow, what an awesome movie! I bought it a while ago and didn't have time to watch it, but once I did, I can say I was totally satisfied with the quality! Another Korean gem- nothing more and nothing less. The action is believable,funny and smart, the characters well developed and the whole atmosphere just makes you watch without even wanting to blink. I definitely recommend this movie!!!! You won't be let down.
