      Leslie Felperin Guardian Suspenseful but fiendishly complex... Rated: 3/5 Jun 23, 2021 Full Review John DeFore Hollywood Reporter Though touching on a le Carre-like web of loyalties, ambition and hidden agendas, the film is generally less engrossing than that might suggest... May 26, 2020 Full Review Cary Darling Houston Chronicle Stylistically, there are echoes of such notable '70s American political thrillers as "Parallax View" and "The Conversation." Even if you're not sure what's going on at any given moment, it is never less than compelling. Rated: 4/5 Feb 9, 2020 Full Review Daryl MacDonald InSession Film For all the opportunities to explore the positions of its various main players, what we’re left with is a staid, plodding drama which feels too afraid to really explore its concepts. Rated: C Apr 26, 2024 Full Review Calum Baker Radio Times Overall, the film's involving period detail and simmering intrigue allow it to stand alongside those classic American political thrillers of the 1970s. Rated: 3/5 Sep 29, 2022 Full Review Daisy Leigh-Phippard Screen Queens It seems that perhaps the melodrama of a significant political moment in South Koreas history, and thus its attempted epicness, may have ultimately failed the film and its actors.
