Michael Leader Little White Lies The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil pulls off its familiar twists and turns with style and verve. Rated: 3/5 Nov 16, 2019 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian Like so many of the genre that hail from Seoul and its suburbs, this one punches well above its weight with an inventive reworking of well-worn plot tropes and slick production values. Rated: 3/5 Nov 15, 2019 Full Review Ben Travis Empire Magazine There's not much going on beneath the energetic surface, but for the most part The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil is a fast-paced, entertaining thriller buoyed by two engaging leads. Don't mess it up in translation, Sly. Rated: 4/5 Nov 14, 2019 Full Review Jae-Ha Kim Jae-Ha Kim (Substack) "The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil" is not a great film, but it's watchable because its star is Ma Dong-seok. The burly actor stars as a mob boss whose street credibility takes a beating when he is nearly killed by a floppy-haired serial killer. Rated: 2/4 Oct 14, 2023 Full Review Alix Turner Ready Steady Cut Action-packed thriller from South Korea about partnerships and competition in hunting a killer; a perfect film from Lee Won-tae apart from a few clichés. Rated: 4/5 Feb 9, 2021 Full Review James Mudge easternKicks.com Energetic and all the better for its sensible running time, though nothing new, it's an enjoyable film, if one that would have been improved by not pulling so many punches Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 21, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Flixster F The story is a bit different and the performances are good. However, the movie fails to rise above mediocrity overall. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/03/24 Full Review Gaming N super fun movie very enjoyable Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Max W Despite some pacing issues, the film manages to somewhat untangle a potentially compelling true story, largely thanks to the charisma of Ma Dong-seok. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Yvonne S This movie had a good plot, good action, and good acting. It was very interesting and had my attention the whole time I watched it.
