Movie Monday – A Hard Day (2014)

Starring: Lee Sun Gyun as Det. Ko Gun-Soo, Jo Jin Woong as Park Chang-Min, Jung Man Shik as Det. Choi, and Shin Jeong Keun as Det. Squad Chief

Rating: PG-13, subject matter and some violence

Running Time: 120 min

Twinkies: 4 1/2 stars

Synopsis: Detective Gun Soo is involved in a car accident which he attempts to cover up. He then falls into an unexpected situation with the only witness Chang Min threatening him. Chang Min hides his true purpose and identity from Gun Soo.

Musings: I’ve been a fan of Lee Sun Gyn since first seeing him in the drama, Pasta. Little did I know that there were so many movies out there where this consummate actor has starred in. So, as I slowly tic down my list of movies to watch, it is always a joy to come across this actor’s name.

This movie is definitely about one man’s wrong decision that takes him down the proverbial rabbit hole. The movie is full of twists and turns as Det Gun Soo tries to hide his bad deed. But what is amazing about this movie is that you really have to watch it from beginning to end as the story slowly unravels.

This movie was amazing! But then what else would you expect from Lee Sun Gyun! If he has ever done a bad movie, I just haven’t seen it. Nothing happens in this movie that you expect and just when you think you have everything figured out….what an ending! That’s all I’m going to say!

But the movie wouldn’t be complete without the presence of one of the best character actors in both movies and dramas, Jo Jin Woong. As Park Chang-Min, the villain with a smile and in the background, you get to follow his character as he takes the poor, unsuspecting Gun Soo through the wringer. But make no mistake, you are not prepared for the ending. Kudos to the writer and director, Kim Seong-hoon (He Was Cool), for putting together a great story as well as assembling an even better cast! What’s the coffin for? You have to watch the movie!!

Trailer is available on on YouTube Website only. The movie is available on various streaming websites. Also available on Netflix if you are a subscriber.
