[Movie Review] Confidential Assignment 2 : International

 [Movie Review] Confidential Assignment 2 : International

Introduction





Jang Myong-jun, the leader of a North Korean criminal organisation, is about to be transferred to Pyongyang when FBI agents are attacked by North Korean gangsters and Myong-jun flees. Because Myong-jun allegedly entered Seoul using a forged passport, the North Korean government dispatches Im Cheol-ryong to catch him. Kang Jin-tae meets Cheol-ryong and decides to resume the investigation to track down Myong-jun, but their work is thwarted by an FBI agent named Jack, who wants to bring the North Korean criminals back to the United States on charges of murdering FBI officials. They agree to expand the operation to a trilateral collaboration of Koreans and Americans. The plot hinges on how the trio captures Myong-jun.

 



Review

This is a sequel to the action comedy Confidential Assignment (2017), and both Hyun Bin and Yoo Hae-Jin reprise their roles as Cheol-Ryung and Jin-Tae respectively. Yoona also returns as Jin-Tae’s sister-in-law, Park Min-young that has a crush on Cheol-Ryung. Daniel Henny's Jack, an American FBI agent, would be a new addition to the premise.

 



It's been a long time since we've seen such an entertaining package of action-comedy that includes action-packed choreography in addition to funny slapstick lines and scenes. From the beginning to the end, the film is packed with action and hilarious scenes that will undoubtedly brighten your day. There’s not a single dull moment in the show. Kudos to the director for the great action sequences and the brilliant use of slow-mo at the right timing that further enhances the impact of the scenes! (Yes, the slow-mo here is really a highlight)

 




I really enjoy watching Hyun Bin, Yoo Hae-Jin, and Daniel Henny interact. Despite having very different personalities, this trio worked well together. All of their conversations are lighthearted, fresh, and funny, and they fit perfectly into a buddy-cop film like this. The charms of Hyun Bin and Daniel Henny are no joke, and female fans will enjoy them. In fact, the show is self-aware and has consistently emphasised their charms. Yoo Hae-Jin, on the other hand, is a comedy genius who makes the audience laugh every time he appears!  Yoona should also be praised for her portrayal of an innocent yet love-hungry character in the show. She works well as a comedic actress, and I hope to see her in more of them.

 









The plot of the show is quite generic in the "cop hunts down baddies" style, but they have added a twist at the end. Some may have predicted this, but the story is overall very palatable and not overly complicated. The pacing is smooth and slick, with a good balance of comedy and action. The soundtracks are also excellent and perfectly complement the film.

 

The only drawback would be the use of CGI in certain scenes that were clearly shot with a green screen. However, this is a minor flaw in light of the overall enjoyment of the show!



Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the film. In fact, I thought it was one of the best films I'd seen in recent months. If you haven't seen the movie yet, please do so!
