Tha Korean Thriller Handphone

This is the Korean thriller handphone.

The Korean thriller Handphone tries to tackle the same territory as it’s hollywood and HK counterparts Cellular and Connected.
The problem is that the film isn’t quite focued on what it wants to be, a traditional thriller like the other two films, a social satire about the media and our dependency on technology, or an existential thriller about two men on a collision course.
In the end the existential thriller in it wins, but it’s no Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance or Old Boy.
That’s a shame, because it has some great performances (especially by Uhm Tae Woong who is one of my favorite Korean younger generation star) and fairly decent pacing.
Worth checking out for fans of the star of for die hard fans of dark Korean thrillers, not the best example of the genre though.
