The Chaser

The Chaser ( 2008 imdb wikipedia ) is an impressive hard boiled crime drama. Eom Joong-hu is an ex-police officer who has become a pimp. A number of his girls go missing. He at first assumes they have run away or been ‘sold’ to someone else. He quickly learns that this isn’t the case and that the girls have been killed. One of his girls goes to a customer that he works out is the killer. The police become involved. The characters are all flawed and seem very believable. The police are not the boring, bland, magically able police of CSI. One moment it is fast and funny, the next horrid. The mix is interesting. Overall The Chaser is quite engrossing. A fine film.

4/5
