    “Cold Eyes” is a South Korean action-thriller inspired by the Hongkong movie “Eye In The Sky” which came out six years prior to this film.The Korean remake has a rather odd beginning from my point of view. The film takes too much time to introduce many characters but only three are truly addicting or important to the story where a special police department is hunting down high profile criminals. The first thirty minutes where everybody gets to know each other in the department and where the team follows a stupid criminal nicknamed “Thirsty Hippo” are rather lengthy. Some rather faceless unit members on one side and exchangeable criminals on the other are the main reasons for a mellow start of this movie. Once the three main characters take the lead and once some unimportant side-stories are eliminated, the movie gets a lot more dynamical around forty minutes into the film. The film is then carried by three characters. First off, there is the nervous rookie which is very well incarnated by actress Han Hyo-Ju. This character is very smart and has some impressive visual skills. On the other side, the young cop does a few fatal mistakes on her first mission. Han Hyo-Ju’s acting feels natural and shows us a young woman torn between cold professionalism and emotional struggles who is growing throughout this story. This character is easily the most addicting one and carries the entire movie.Chief Hwang is very well played Sol Kyung-Gu. At first sight, his character seems to be quite professional but also very arrogant, cold and severe at moments. Towards the end of the movie, his personal values come into play and show us a softer core where the aged expert is ready to sacrifice everything to save his men. He also becomes somehow a father figure for the rookie cop. This dynamical character and his actions add some diversity and a few philosophical thoughts to this film.Last but not least, there is the cold-hearted, well organized and extremely smart veteran villain incarnated by Jung Woo-Sung. This character also has some quite different sides. He seems pitiless at first sight but he also cares about his men and refuses to blindly follow his superiors. It’s a man that follows his convictions, his experience and his instinct. That’s why he has some identical character qualities with the rookie cop on one side and her chief on the other. This explains why he is a quite respectable villain and not just a one- dimensional brutal bully. The clash of these three characters is what makes the movie really outstanding. The film gets more and more tension-filled towards the end. The last twenty minutes or so are dedicated to an amazing chase through the city of Seoul where each of the three characters has to sacrifice something. These scenes will bring you on the edge of your seat.The modern film techniques are effectively used without adding too many special effects to it. The film always remains as grounded and realistic as possible. The settings in this movie are well chosen but not exceptional either. While the story is nothing innovating, it’s especially the great acting of the three main characters and the constantly growing pace leading to a dramatic turn of events that convince most. This is a welcome change to the effect-ridden Hollywood productions like “Mission Impossible” or “The Bourne” series.If you watch this grounded and well-acted action-thriller, just be sure to be patient enough to make it through the first thirty or forty minutes that are not completely useless but rather ordinary in comparison to what follows afterwards. Genre fans and those who care for South Korean cinema should appreciate this film even though it can’t mess with some of the contemporary cinematic milestones coming from this extraordinary country.

    This is a remake of the excellent Hong Kong film “Eye in the Sky” from 2007.A high-tech police surveillance team attempts to take down a gang of ruthless bank robbers. If you’d like more detail on how exactly the protagonists go about their job, check out my review of “Eye in the Sky.” Now in terms of “Cold Eyes”, events play out in a very similar fashion. Some sequences are practically shot-for-shot, but there are also a number of differences that make this worth watching – even if you’ve already seen the original film. In fact, these two films have become one of my “go to” double features. I love watching these back-to-back.One reason for this is that you get to see the differences between Hong Kong and South Korean filmmaking. The realistic, suspense-driven “tailing” sequences are preserved and proficiently executed, but “Cold Eyes” has a slightly higher octane, with some added punch in terms chases, shootouts, and hand-to-hand fighting. So it “pops” a bit more when the action hits. It’s also 30 minutes longer, which should probably result in some pacing issues – but that’s not the case. It takes a bit more time developing the characters and drama, but everything continues to movie briskly. There’s also a bit more comedy here that works well. However, that does not necessarily mean that “Cold Eyes” is a better film, because I slightly prefer “Eye in the Sky” due mostly to the fact that it really sticks the ending. The ending to “Cold Eyes” is certainly satisfying, but it’s more commonplace and less poetic.So what about the acting in “Cold Eyes”? It’s really good. Kyung-gu Sol is the lead actor here. Not a familiar name, but he’s been in a bunch of good movies: “Peppermint Candy” from 2000, “Public Enemy” from 2002, “Oasis” from 2002, and “No Mercy” from 2010. Very good actor, and this is probably my favorite role of his. The lead actress is Hyo-joo Han, who is always awesome. I’ll watch her in anything. And finally, the villain is played by Woo-sung Jung – who you may have recognized in films such as “The Good the Bad the Weird” from 2008 and “The Divine Move” from 2014. He plays the bad guy with slightly less nuance than Tony Leung Ka-fai did in the original, but Jung is very menacing in this one. A real cold-blood killer.On a final note, there’s a fun cameo at the very end of the film. So keep an eye out for that. Just like “Eye in the Sky”, I highly recommend “Cold Eyes.” It’s widely available on DVD. And I’m telling you that these two films make a fantastic double-feature for a movie night. Watch “Eye in the Sky” first though.

    Movie: Cold Eyes (15)Rating: 5/5I was willing to watch this film since quite long. The trailer was very impressive and the posters too excited me to watch it soon. Finally, I saw it yesterday and was totally impressed. Not for a single moment did it let me move. Right from the first shot, COLD EYES pulled me into its atmosphere and engaged from start to end.Han Hyo-joo is amazing. It’s a pleasure to see an actress like her step into this genre. She’s pretty, of course, and not just her looks but even her strong performance won’t let you take your eyes off her. Sol Kyung-gu: mastermind genius! He’s such a great actor. His performance is excellent and is to be watched out for. Jung Woo-sung: EXCELLENT. He’s not just a manly, handsome actor but also a strong performer. These three actors are simply one of the best things about this film, apart from the tight screenplay, stunning action sequences, splendid cinematography and edge of the seat thrills.The film has rich production values. What also impressed me is that the directors have not wasted even a single second and have told the story very skilfully. COLD EYES, undoubtedly is one of the best action thriller films, ever, ever, ever. It’s so good that I would love to see it again and again and again. It has got a great repeat value.

    Impressive opening scene. Excellent photography. Awesome visuals. Fascinating story. Action-packed and unpredictable. What more could you want in an action thriller? The film is about a group of police specialists who are the best in their field, and a mastermind criminal the best in his field, and them trying to outwit one another. He gets hired to steal specific items, and never deviate from the plan. Woo-sung Jung is excellent in the role of the ruthless robber.

    Following on the heels of films such as ‘New World’, ‘Nameless Gangster’, ‘A Company Man’, and ‘The Man From Nowhere’, ‘Cold Eyes’ continues the recent run of entertaining crime thrillers coming out of South Korea.An armed and dangerous gang of criminals have pulled off a near-perfect bank heist, in large part due to the planning of their highly intelligent leader James. The Korean Police Forces crack surveillance unit are tasked with tracking down the gang. Headed up by the reckless but kind-hearted Hwang Sang-jun and with highly-skilled new recruit Ha Yoon-ju on board, the team will need all of their skills to track down the gang before they strike again. But with James possessing an almost unparalleled sense of strategy and unerring attention-to-detail, the team will be hard-pressed to stop him.’Cold Eyes’ has a definite sense of style with its whirring CG effects and energetic set-pieces but this in no way overshadows the overall substance of the film. Told from the perspectives of the three leads – the firm but fair veteran; the determined but untested rookie; and the cold and calculating crim – the film barrels along at a rhythmic pace with some kinetic and exciting action sequences, whilst at the same time keeping you hooked with an intriguing cat-and-mouse storyline and well-developed characters. Good guy or bad guy, there is a definite sense of attachment following each character as they try to outfox their counterpart. Han Hyo-ju in particular does brilliantly as the rookie surveillance officer struggling with her emotions and her sense of professionalism – she has such an expressive face, its mesmerising at times. Fan favourite Jung Woo-sung (notwithstanding the dodgy hair-do) also has a memorable turn as the precise and cold-hearted gang leader.There is a definite suspension of belief required whilst watching this film but it never gets to the point where it becomes outrageous or over-the-top silly (although it does get close a couple of times).If you’ve enjoyed the recent string of crime thrillers from Korea or are just in the mood for an entertaining modern take on the cops-and-robbers story, this is definitely worth your time.

    You don’t have to watch the original, 2007, Eye in the Sky HK movie. But then you won’t get the ending cameo.Personally I don’t think there will be an sequel. Korean movies are not known for that. Casue the find new materials every time.Sometime they make good remakes, (like this or remake of Japanese “Trains”), sometimes not as so (I heard “A Better Tomorrow” or “White Nights” are not as appealing) Story is about a team of surveillance cops vs. a cold calculated criminal, who can plan, execute and getaway a crime with precision and detail to account for almost everything. On the other side is a rookie with pinpoint memory who is recruited by a weary veteran.Usually I won’t waste time trashing a movie if I don’t have a long line of reasons to (like the missing science in the Star Trek reboot – but it so bad that is was funny instead). And why waste time/words, effort on a review to trash or to vent if you could have walked out in the first place.Howerver, there is no “real” central focusing character in this setup. I think they didn’t want to be completely on the ‘rookie’ female cop. But added more back story to the villain to carry the load instead. This maybe the weak point for me. It’s all very very well-done but lacking some kind of soul. For example, compare to the Howling, The man from Nowhere. But as entertainment, yes. No complaints.

    I haven’t seen the original Hong Kong edition, but only compared with the posters, the hostess will obviously be much more beautiful. The whole film has a clear rhythm, and the characterization is a success.

    Its a story about a surveillance team operation and a robber group lead by a mysterious. Decent story and moderate action sequences. The whole movie concentrate on hide & seek of two group of people and there is no one else. Movie is missing the background of the mysterious leader AKA shadow character. His motives and issues with handler is not clear. I found tailing the target scenes are bit immature, could have been much better. But overall story and cinematography is good.

    A young woman is tracking somebody through the subways and streets of Seoul, taking care not to be seen but observing everything about, and around, her quarry. She and the man she’s following both end up in a restaurant, where the man confronts her – turns out that he’s police detective Hwang and that she has been completing the final test required for recruitment to his special surveillance unit. While this is going on, however, another scene is unfolding: a car suddenly explodes in a parking building, creating a diversion that draws all available police personnel while a gang of thieves rob a nearby bank – not only of money, but of specific security boxes. What was taken, and why? And who is the mastermind behind the spectacular robbery? Soon Hwang and his unit, all going by the code names of various animals, find themselves tracking a possible satellite member of the gang, in an attempt to close in on the leader. But that leader is very wily – and very, very dangerous….”Cold Eyes” is a super-charged action movie, with a few big car chases but far more chases on foot, which tend to create much more tension in the audience as you never know if the tracker is going to be caught. Aside from the high stakes in the film, the city of Seoul itself becomes a character, as Detective Hwang and his people use CCTV, computer triangulation and good old maps and feet on the ground to discover, and then track, the movements of various bad guys. For such a high-octane film, there’s not a massive amount of blood spilled here, although there is some. This is a fast-paced thriller which will keep the audience on the edge of their seats from start to finish; lots of fun!

    From the start to the last minute I played the movie, I couldn’t look away for a once. the track of the story is amazing. I did’t feel bored nor did I expect what will happen at the end or during the movie.

    This would have been a cool k-drama series, for maybe 12 or 16 episodes. I know this is suppose to be a remake of a Chinese movie, but it just seemed a bit undeveloped. It’s about a surveillance team, that tracks down bad guys using the camera around the city. But they meet their biggest match when they encounter a leader that runs a crew of robbers. This flick has few quick cool moments in between, but nothing all that memorable. This is Jung Woo-sung’s first role as the bad guy, and he basically plays the typical charismatic cool bad guy that is way too underdeveloped. As a matter of fact, you know almost nothing about any of the characters in this movie to even care what happens. Which is unfortunate since their seems to be some interesting character. A bit more information on their personality, background and motives would have made this movie better. It’s worth a watch, but you won’t be missing out on much if you miss out on this one.6.5/10

    Hello, I will be your reviewer for the rest of this paragraph. As your reviewer, I can tell you that this thriller is one of the best of its kind ever produced anywhere in the world, and you will not be bored. In fact, you will be superbly entertained. The bad news is that, as your reviewer, I cannot tell you precisely how they pulled this off. Let me be clearer — these sorts of “team” cop shows have been around since the 1930s G-Man pictures. In the 60s we had Mission Impossible with a dozen knockoffs in the decades that followed. Robert Redford liked this specific format a lot and did one or two in this vein. Still — this is the point — you have never really seen a “task force” cop film until you have seen this one. Somehow this film offers a perfect balance — enough idiosyncratic characters to form a connection; yet simultaneously enough technology and team action to make the experience more like a sports movie (any team sport) than a simple crime film. In the west, we glorify the individual. In the east, not so much. Perhaps that is the secret? But one thing for sure – great film.

    You can call it a remake or inspired but this movie resembles Simon Yam’s ‘Eye in the sky’ and a little bit of ‘Infernal Affairs’. And that confirms when Simon himself appears as a cameo at the end. This Korean movie was very stylishly made especially the character appearances. An exciting pace with high tech electronic devices implements to spy the criminals gives a very modern look on detectives.The movie begins with a twist at opening itself like some interview to hire somebody. Its a surveillance theme where a team of Korean intelligence works together to take down a group of bank robbers. Piglet is a given pet name to a newly recruited officer for the special crime unite. Her impressive observation talent puts her straight into a major spying case. Soon she gets her first field assignment to track the movements of one of the heist member. The thrilling story of ‘Cold Eyes’ tells how Piglet and her team led by Lee jointly acts to get the ruthless thieves.This movie portrayed only between the two groups and nothing else like the rest of the world is blind. Between these two, the thieves and cops, it is demonstrated like a cat-mouse game. It was a good entertaining movie one can enjoy it thoroughly. If you have already seen ‘Eye in the sky’ or not, no matter this movie is still looking good on its own so you will have a good time. There were no hardcore stunts in the movie except a couple of quick sequences. After all it is a spying theme which fulfills its purpose in a stylish manner.

    Cold Eyes is a fast paced crime drama which begins with a pretty young girl on a subway who seems to be a regular passenger with other riders. Hyo-ju Ha is the actress, and she is the star here, a natural beauty who you cannot take your eyes off of. She turns out to be an undercover cop tracking bad guys. Later on, she is teamed with other police, all men, by the way, who join together to catch a ruthless group of criminals who have robbed a bank. Most of the film is set in a large room filled with monitors showing various parts of a Korean city. It moves along quickly, with a solid cast and decent storyline. The ending is nothing new, but overall it is better than average.

    i have never heard about this movie before but today i was surfing the net looking for a good action movie and because i love Korean movies i stumbled upon this great piece of entertainment.the movie starts with a very spectacular heist executed precisely by an armed gang with the supervision of a man that seems like he doesn’t wanna get his hands dirty (i was wrong about him) instead he instructs his gang members from an elevated position he is basically the architect of the heist.on the other side a group of high tech police squad that chooses it’s recruits carefully as they have to be very brilliant in many aspects in this demanding field and the chase begins in this action packed edge of seat thriller.this movie is simply a chase that lasts like 3 days if i’m not wrong involving followings stakeouts and bugging houses in order to identify the members of the bank robbers as they plan another even more daring heist. the directors kept the same pace through the whole movie in order to give the audience a feel that time is running out or rather a feel of doing something risky and trying to get away with it. they also focused on the Villain of this movie who in my opinion stole the show with his intelligence and fighting skills as he manages to stay one step ahead of the police the entire time.and how can i disregard the brilliant camera-work and the editing that despite the nature of most of the action happening in this movie still manages to capture every single thing. overall this is a great cops and robbers movie with some good thrills and fight scenes. my rating 7.5/10

    “Eye in the Sky” was one of the most under-appreciated movies of 2007, a taut and tense Hong Kong thriller from auteur Johnnie To’s Milkyway Image banner which boasted compelling performances from Milkyway regulars Simon Yam and Tony Leung under the auspicious directorial debut of To’s frequent assistant Law Wing Cheong. Fortunately for fans of the original, “Cold Eyes” isn’t one of those remakes that ends up sullying the reputation of its predecessor; instead, directors Cho Ui-seok and Kim Byung-seo have succeeded in creating an equally gripping movie that is both reverential to its source material and imaginative enough to stand on its own. Indeed, the beauty of their film lies in how it manages to balance elements from the original with its own ideas, trading one metropolis for another without losing the idiosyncrasies of Seoul’s urban landscape or for that matter of Milkyway’s high-brow concept.Like “Eye”, Cho begins with the team’s latest addition, Yoon-ju (Han Hyo-joo), being assigned to track a middle-aged man whose identity she is oblivious to. In actual fact, the man is none other than her soon-to- be leader Hwang (Seol Kyung-gu), the “mission” an on-the-job interview for the Chief to assess her abilities. While trading Hong Kong’s signature tram cars for Seoul’s underground subway, the details remain the same – Hwang drops a newspaper along the way, bumps into another lady, enters a phone booth, scribbles on a piece of paper torn from the phone book, and finally sits down in a café where he confronts her – every single one just as important for Yoon-ju’s assignment.As Hwang is testing Yoon-ju, a band of criminals led by James (Jung Woo- sung) execute a high-precision heist at a bank in downtown Seoul, eventually making off with millions after evading the police in no small measure due to a diversion created by one of their members. He’s the equivalent of the original’s Lam Suet, a crucial mark the team will eventually focus on to get their first break into a seemingly flawless plan. James is however here a criminal-for-hire rather than his own mastermind, a new addition from the original being a mysterious broker (Kim Byeong-OK) whom the former gets his orders from.Staying true to the nature of such operations, Cho keeps their target elusive in the first hour of the film; instead, he takes the opportunity of that waiting game to emphasise the character beats that will pay off later in several surprisingly affecting scenes, in particular, that between Chief Hwang and Yoon-ju. Kyung-gu plays the strict but warm- hearted Hwang visibly tougher than Simon Yam was in the original, but otherwise the dynamic between mentor and rookie is pretty much similar – and in the days spent waiting for their mark, Hwang will come to recognise and admire Yoon-ju’s intelligence and tenacity, while the latter will take to the former like a daughter to a father. That bond was the heart and soul of “Eye”, and Cho’s retelling loses none of the original’s poignancy, especially given Seol and Han’s heartfelt chemistry in their scenes together. Yet even in the midst of these character-driven moments, Cho keeps a tight grip on the film’s pace set in motion from the very first riveting frame. Like a procedural, every fascinating detail of the team’s stakeout from their covers to their routine is carefully depicted – even their disposition on the field, as exemplified by Yoon-ju’s break from protocol by intervening to assist a woman being bullied by a group of thugs. And as a perfect counterbalance, we are also acquainted with James, whose potent combination of methodical and meticulous injects frissons of menace into the proceedings.From tense to intense pretty much describes the second half of the movie, which kicks into high gear when the team follows their target to discover the rest of his crew – sans James, who manages to keep his cover a little longer by always keeping a safe distance, though never letting his watchful eye slip, from his associates. Once again, Cho stays true to the spirit of the original – choreographing edge-of-your- seat moments as Hwang and Yoon-ju trail James through a myriad of small alleys – while expanding the scope of the action thanks to a much larger budget, including a car chase that unfolds amidst Seoul’s busy streets and culminates in a standoff in the middle of a flyover.Perhaps most significantly, Cho retains the karmic twist at the end of “Eye” despite dropping such a reference in the English title this remake adopts – and for those who have not seen that earlier movie, let’s just say it has something to do with Buddhist teachings. Cho’s respect for his inspiration is clear at every turn – even in the alias ‘Piglet’ Yoon-ju assumes in the field – which is probably the reason why he manages to snag Simon Yam to appear in a brief cameo right at the end.Whether as a remake or as a film on its own, this is without a doubt a first-rate exceptional thriller that makes the most of its distinctive premise to deliver an edge-of-your-seat adrenaline-pumping ride. No wonder then that the movie has gone on to become one of the biggest hits this year in its home territory – and with original lead star Yam clearly on board, we can say that obvious sequel has become one of those we really cannot wait to see.

    “Cold Eyes” is a new thriller and we can pronounce South Korean mastery in thriller genre.An elite Korean police surveillance unit, led by Hwang Sang-jun/Falcon (Seol Kyung-gu), is after an ace gang of robbers led by James (Jung Woo-sung). At the same time, rookie Ha Yoon-ju/Piglet (Han Hyo-joo) joins the surveillance unit and needs to learn how to fit in.”Cold Eyes” is a taut, proficient and tense thriller. It delivers every minute detail of the surveillance team, and we are in sync with main characters and their competencies. Everything we need to know about them for the story is mostly presented through how they do their jobs, and most of them are smart and resourceful enough to be the competent players of their crafts. In their intense battle of wits, a trivial thing noticed in one situation can be a crucial chance for reversal in the other circumstance later, and, like many good thrillers, that makes us constantly anxious about what will happen next.The movie draws our attention from the beginning with its terrific opening sequence introducing its main characters as also subtly signaling to us that something is going on under the surface. We initially see a young woman in the subway that seems to be on some clandestine mission, and we also notice an ordinary-looking middle-aged man in the same subway car. Both are very watchful about their surroundings, but they are also very, very careful about being not noticed by others – and each other, perhaps.”Cold Eyes” is the remake of Hong Kong thriller “Eye in the Sky (2007)” produced by Johnnie To, and he also has a cameo. “Cold Eyes” is a perfect remake with genuine South Korean style and substance.7.8/10

    This tells the operations of a team of surveillance officers tracking some most wanted criminals in South Korea.Piggy is a new recruit into the surveillance team, and her initial test to see if she has photographic memory is already very impressive. When she is on the field and put to test, she and her team continues to excel in all ways possible. The technology they used, their analytical power and their brilliant skills dazzle viewers. The numerous close shaves keep viewers on edge, and there were many occasions I could feel myself holding my breath, waiting for critical events to unfold.I have watched a few Korean films lately, and I have been thoroughly impressed by all of them. “Cold Eyes” continues the streak of great Korean films to be exported abroad, as it is a thriller that cuts right to the chase and keeps you on edge throughout the film. If you have the chance, go watch “Cold Eyes”.

    I came to this without real expectations… first five minutes I was lost and uninterested, ten minutes warming up. Suddenly, I felt like being part of the film, of the team, (the good guys), following the robbers and “Shadow” from the edge of my seat, and all this without CGI involved! Catching the bad guys hasn’t been so much entertainment for me in a little while… and the characters do not scream their lungs out, or run through the streets knocking everyone else down, on the contrary they act as discreet as a surveillance team should in real life.”Cold Eyes” is a movie that delivers, and the action is not over the top, so it may be unsatisfying for Hollywood standards, but what it lacks in explosions and heart pounding chases, fulfill with characters and situations that we care,so, if you like good thriller with some action just sit and enjoy this Korean Movie!

    I am lucky enough to attend a premiere of Cold Eyes. Without any expectation or prior knowledge of the movie ,I was drawn into the movie within 10 minutes. I do not want to spoil the movie for anyone but if you are into terrific Korean thrillers like Man from nowhere, The Chaser etc., Cold eyes is definitely for you. The characters are vivid, the action is exciting and heart pounding, the fight scenes are well choreographed and believable, the cat and mouse tracking between the detectives and the villains will keep you on the edge of your seat. The jokes are natural and laughable too, which are inserted at the correct points of the movie to create a tense and loosen effect, catching hold of the audience and letting go a while when necessary. Go and watch it, it is well worth your time. Hollywood productions, better buck up as Korea movies are coming strong.
