There’s nothing like a little Ocean’s Eleven mixed with a dash of Korean. The Host was once Korea’s most-watched film and now it has been topped by Dong-hoo Choi‘s The Thieves.
It doesn’t look all that special or worthy of topping The Host, but it doesn’t look bad by any stretch. I’m really struggling with viewing this trailer and not thinking of Soderbergh’s perfect trilogy, except without Brad Pitt and George Clooney and instead a whole bunch of Koreans.
Nothing wrong with that.
The Thieves opened in the US on October 12th, 2012.
