Brilliant but flawed

The movie is well paced with great performance and some nail biting scenes. The emotions and investigation scenes are very well packed together. Even though with the amazing thriller plot the movie lacks a foolproof ending. The protagonist who was the culprit in the first abduction being not aware of the similarity in his grandchild's abduction, to be precise the exchange of ransom in the duffle bag and with military outfit is enough for him to suspect the victim of the first case. And another loophole in the case is even though he was forced to confess that he was the abductor of his grandchild, it is obvious the child will tell her parents that it was a lady and not her grandfather who took her. Apart from these plotholes the movie is worth watching and quite entertaining too.

My rating 7.5 out of 10 for having such a clever ending!

If you have seen as many films as I have in my life you may feel compelled to stop watching this movie, because, who cares about Another kidnapper, another obsessed and tormented mother ("Azooma") piecing the case together? and a hunted detective?. Seriously? How many times we have seen this and the (sometimes) over-melodramatic Korean style? Well,I am glad I pushed myself to see how this story would end! The clever and twisting last half of it, made me regret those times when I paused it to fix coffee,I am so glad I did not walk away when I felt a little bored with the "familiar" plot. The last thirty minutes will stick on your memory as one of those endings that must be watched again to savor a good writing,so rare and hard to find. Acting is good enough, in any case this is a must-watch, and I will recommend it to anyone who ask: Have you seen a good movie lately? So my rating 7.5 out of 10 for having such a clever ending!

Another great Korean movie.

You got to give it to the Koreans, well the South-Koreans that is, as they yet again made a most enjoyable movie to watch. They did it again and I'm not really surprised as over the years the Korean movie industry is one of my favorites. This time it's writer/director Geun-seop Jeong, another name I will try to follow, as I'm curious if his next movies will be of the same quality as Mong-ta-joo (or Montage for the English title). Montage is well written, full of suspense, good twists, and an almost incredible ending that nobody will see coming. The cast also contributed to make this movie stand out from the rest. Korean actors are unlike their neighboring Asian countries never overacting, which is a big problem in those other countries. I never remember their names though, and I'm sorry for that, but I certainly recognize familiar faces from the Korean movie industry. Mont-ta-joo is another great Korean movie, the list is getting long.
