The Reviews for The Chaser (2008) 720p


Stylish, dark, entertaining and depressing movieReviewed byAThamesVote: 7/10

This was a very dark movie, even by Korean standards. The movie starts of as a kind of black comedy. The protagonist is a pimp who has a hard time controlling his prostitutes. When one of his girls doesn't return, he believes that someone is picking them up and selling them. He calls his former buddies in the police force, that unfortunately is busy dealing with a case of someone throwing feces in the face of the city mayor. The comical mood changes when the perspective changes to one of his girls, who finds herself in a very creepy house with an even more creepy customer.

This is not about a typical chase, where the protagonist has to track down and capture the antagonist. That all happens inside the first 15 minutes. This chase is about tracking down the girl, and later, about tracking down evidence in order to convict the antagonist. But it also becomes far more complicated than that.

During this chase, you are really feeling the frustrations that the main character is having. You get equally mad at the incompetent police force, and you will feel a need to scream "pick up the phone moron!" or "Noo, don't go in there!" on several occasions. The chase scenes are very well done, and the action/fighting scenes are also very well done. They feel very realistic and are well choreographed (and violent). Also, the villain of this movie does not look like a villain. But you will still end up getting the chills every time he looks into the camera.

The dialogue is harsh. It's mainly the protagonist throwing insults at the people he is encountering, it can be comical at times, but it can also be the exact opposite. No one is talking nice to each other in this movie.

The cinematography is well done. It's a very dark toned movie, but that doesn't bring down the beautiful shots of the city (Seoul). It really helps set the correct mood for the movie.

My only complaints would be that it becomes a little too long for it's own good, and some of the scenes felt a bit forced in order to finish the storyline.

That's another user or commentator, here on IMDb. And his last sentence is "Go and watch the movie". I fully stand behind this, because this was one of the best movies I've watched this year (at the Fright Fest in London).

There's only a little thing that you should bare in mind: If you actually don't like Korean (or Asian movies for that matter), than this won't be for you. Especially if you like your movies to be according to a somewhat linear structure. While with other movies of this nature, you might foresee things happening, I was baffled (in a good way) with the directions this movie took. Very brave choices and a great script. The actors of course are phenomenal too. It all fits together in one whole perfect piece. If you like your thrillers to be ... well thrilling, than this is the one to watch!

Korean movies have gotta be some of the most intenseReviewed bylee_eisenbergVote: 10/10

I knew nothing about Na Hong-jin's "Chugyeokja" ("The Chaser" in English) when I started watching it, and that made it even more intense. This story of a detective-turned-pimp who decides to look into the disappearance of his prostitutes makes Seoul look like one gritty polity. All manner of nasty things take place throughout the movie, but none of it is gratuitous. Quite the opposite, everything is there to show the unpleasant existence that the characters lead. And boy are there some unpleasant things here! This movie has no place for subtlety.

The movie reminded me of another South Korean crime drama that I saw recently: "A Hard Day". What I conclude is that the bottom half of the Korean peninsula turns out some of the most intense movies in the world (I suspect that the upper half only makes propaganda movies). There are lots of intense movies made throughout the world, but South Korea's crime dramas are possibly the most extreme. I doubt that you've seen anything like "The Chaser". I recommend it.
