Critic Reviews for The Age of Shadows
The action is lengthy but well constructed, particularly a sequence on a wood-panelled steam train, but the torture scenes and occasional severed toes may try some viewers.
At 140 minutes, The Age of Shadows is a film that peaks early and ends late. Still, there is an upside to this ponderousness.
This film certainly believes in giving the audience bang for their buck: although it's a little over-extended.
The Age of Shadows is a giddily compelling South Korean movie about war, spies and resistance history.
This is pulsating storytelling, suspenseful and often very stylish too.
Audience Reviews for The Age of Shadows
Jee-woon Kim isn't coy about the narrative, we know where the character's loyalties lie and who/what they are playing. You'd think this would suck the tension out of this kind of movie, but it merely shifts the plot's focus to more interesting areas.
