On a rainy night whilst on duty, Kang Chul-joong encounters
a suspicious man in a hooded raincoat. When he tries to question
him, the man cuts his face and casually walks away, leaving
the weapon behind. A week later, the bodies of an old couple
are found with multiple stab wounds. Investigating at the
murder scene, Chul-joong recalls the man in the rain, and
notices that the stab wounds on the corpses were made by the
same knife. When Chul-joong comes face to face with the man
he suspects is the killer, the two men attempt to outwit each
other until a brutal and bloody battle to the death ensues...
Enemy is a movie about a cop. He is not a nice cop. In
fact he is not very nice period. He is as corrupt as they
come; he beats up his prisoners and takes advantage of the
poor criminals. This being said, from the word go you believe
that he really isn't that bad. And when he goes to investigate
a double murder he becomes personally involved in the case.
He suspects a man who stands to gain a lot from the double
murder. He then starts to hound the suspect with Colombo like
explosive mix of stylish violence and blackly comic action,
this relentless thriller form Korea has a wicked sense of
humour. This has been compared to Dirty Harry in terms
of content but I can't see any real relation.
is a straightforward redemption film, and a damn good one
at that. It has plenty to offer and you hardly even notice
the two and a half hour running time.
is a fine piece of cinema and you do end up wishing that all
of Korea's exports were as good as this.
