    JR did a review on 2004 and gave it a very good review, yet in one of the weekend paper it gave it a bad one.

    I saw it at Odeon Covent Garden, i don't think its on general release, thought it should be, compared to all the parp on offer.

    Saw this at the weekend.

    Flippin' awesome in every regard. Thought it was going to be a Korean rip-off of Scorcese/tarantino/coppolla, but no. Just two hours of violent, masochistic madness, woven together in an excellent (if a little far-fetched) story with some great twists!

    Hard to understand in some places - one to watch slowly on DVD if you really want to understand what's going on, but you should definitely see this film.

    Very highly recommended.
