    I really want to know the exact number of cars destroyed in this film because it was *at least* a full level at a parking structure worth. And that was AWESOME.
    Gong Yoo was amazing per usual, Kim Sung-kyun who I *just* watched in NAMELESS GANGSTER was great, and Jo Sung-ha who is generally very classy and handsome was super out of control and eeeeeeeevvvviiiiiiilll which was super awesome.
    All the huge car smash-ups and fight action stuff was great. Good one!!!!
