Review:
This movie is about a police team in-charge of hit and run accidents. One of the cases involves an arrogant race car driver avoiding arrest and lying about the hit and run incident a few months ago which later turns out to be much more – bribery, death, betrayal. But our squad is staking their lives to catch him before he flees the country.

I think the real star of this movie is Ryu Jun Yeol’s character Minjae who at first looked like an eccentric cop with good instincts but once we find out more about his past, we realize he isn’t as clueless as he seems. I love his relationship with his dad and the ambulance scene was 😭😭😭.

I’m not used to seeing Jo Jung Suk as the bad guy but he kind of has that scary look on his face when he tries to threaten Siyeon or Minjae. There were two scenes which I think were inspired by fast and the furious when Jaecheol was running after Minjae and Siyeon.

I was expecting more of Gong Hyojin’s character Siyeon but she didnt do much. I liked her with Taeho, i’m happy he didn’t die. That twist with her boss was unexpected but was so sudden it didnt really had much impact.

The ending also felt incomplete. So what happened to the boss? Is there a sequel? Kim Go Eun’s character is only a cameo? The police commissioner’s accident is he dead?
