Screener Squad: The Gangster, the Cop, and the Devil

The Gangster, The Cop, and The Devil Movie Review


The Screener Squad have gotten themselves caught up in the seedy world of South Korean crime in this serial killer/gangster/cop drama. The bulk of the story focuses on the tensions between the eponymous gangster (Ma Dong-seok) and the cop (Kim Mu-Yeol), with the cop unable to put away the gangster due to his chief being bought off. Things change, however, when a wanted serial killer attacks the gangster in the middle of the night. Not only does the gangster survive, but he has seen the killer’s face and is determined to kill him at all costs. Seeing a potential opportunity to bring the killer to justice, the cop strikes an uneasy alliance with the gangster and they use their combined resources for a manhunt. Who will get to the killer first though? Justin, Shak, Allen, and Bradly have plenty to say about this strange genre-mashing film, mostly about how much Ma Dong-seok is now their favorite person in the world! Check out their full thoughts here.

Starring: Ma Dong-seok, Kim Mu-Yeol, Kim Sung-kyu
