I have been waiting for this movie ever since I saw the movie trailer and when the movie finally release at my country, you could say I'm thrilled and excited. With popcorn on one hand and drinks on the others, I am ready to watch Hitman Agent Jun!
Before we begin on the review of the movie, let's give a bit of synopsis on what's this movie is about. So, this is a story about Jun (Kwon Sang Woo), a once legendary hitman agent in a secret national project team. Despite being an agent, his true passion was to become a comic artist. Thus, he fake his death during his mission to chase his true passion.
15 years later, Jun who is now a husband and a father have achieve his dream to become a webcomic artist, but his webtoon was a total FLUNK. He receive a lot of negative review on his webcomic which cause him to feel furious. That evening, in his drunk state he decides to draws a comic based on his real past life as a hitman for the national secret team. The next day, his comic become a HIT but gave Jun a whole lot of trouble due to all classified information that he has leak on the comic.
Okay, I'm not exactly a fan of Kwon Sang Woo. I literally only watch of his works which is Accidental Detective and that's it. However, this movie really satisfying for me.
I love the concept where they merge a bit of animation into this movie which is so cool! I'm a person who love a nice action movies and this movie have a nice action scene. I'm not an expert on martial art but I have to say, in my opinion, the fighting moves felt so clean and sharp! Kwon Sang Woo really done a good job in portraying his character as an agent and a family man.
Despite being an action movie, it also a comedy and I have to say it is pack with comedy. The facial expression and those puns are funny. Well, I can't say it super hilarious since it's not. However, it's still funny for me. Bear in mind, that I'm not a person who is easily laugh on comedy so it might be super hilarious for you. So, give it try!
Now, my most favourite part of this movie is those badass soundtrack. It's not original since they use some of old hiphop songs which is so COMPATIBLE with the scene of the movie! Apart from that, there is one instrumental song that they use during the animation scene that I have fell in love but I'm not sure whether it's original or not.
Kwon Sang Won also work together with Hwang Woo Seul Hye, Lee Ji Won, Jung Joon Ho and Lee Yi Kyung. All of them works well together and have good chemistry. Each of them have interaction with one another and most of those interaction a comedy scene. Thus, you could look forward on that when you watch this movie.
My advice, if you feel doubtful on this movie, watch the trailer available on Youtube because that trailer gave out some of the good scene. So, if you like the trailer, you will like the movie but if it's vice versa then that movie is not your cup of tea.
That's all for me! If you decide to watch the movie, have fun and enjoy! If not, then let's find another movie, shall we?
