My sister went for the movie preview courtesy of Sony Pictures Singapore yesterday. She came home sharing with her after movie experience. Before I move on with the review, check out the trailer and the movie synopsis for a better understanding.
Hardcore gamer Kwon Yu (JI Chang-wook) wastes his life away playing video games at internet cafes. But after he returns a lost phone, he is arrested and given life imprisonment for sexually assaulting and murdering a minor. With the help of his online team mates, he has a chance to clear his name. As they dig into his case, they uncover a massive plot and a shadowy organization that puts innocent people to prison on behalf of powerful men in the country.
The story plot is interesting and unexpected twist along the line. The actor and actresses did a good job in showcasing the individual role character especially the emotional scenes. The facial expressions reflecting emotions and mentality are well-played. Although the initial part appeared to be confusing, I slowly pieced up all the scenes and figured out the whole picture. It is rather interesting as it gives me a room of imagination and kept me at the edge wondering what is next.
