Featured reviews for

Rough Cut
Korean Movie Reviews, by Darcy Paquet source:
«Debut director Jang Hoon is one of an increasing number of filmmakers to have apprenticed under Kim Ki-duk. Yet aside from a few plot points, and an obvious Bad Guy reference, this film feels very different structurally and stylistically from anything Kim Ki-duk has ever made. Jang Hoon appears to have some real talent in his own right.»
Lunapark6, by luna 6 source:
«What “Rough Cut” has to offer is a tantalizing premise and that eye-popping performance by Ji-seob So. The movie also has plenty of energetic action sequences, the final duel between Gang-pae & Su-tae being particularly memorable. The movie’s drawbacks would be the lack of depth in addressing the duality of the main character’s selves & the bad habit of becoming too much tongue-in-cheek at times.»
