New World

Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Bestowed with a somewhat novel twist, Park Hoon-jung's New World employs the good-guy/bad-guy power dynamic of the typical cop-gangster flick and treats it as the primary source of the story's intrigue. But the mole-imbedded gang war at the heart of this film plays out less like an organic round of Go between cops and criminals than the elaborate scheme of one character operating like a sadistic Creator and wreaking havoc in the lives of his ants.

  • Conclusion: New World is a complexly structured and rather dense entertainment, and so it requires the kind of close attention that some filmgoers aren't willing to invest. For those who can navigate the admittedly confusing first half hour or so, the film pays off in spades—and then some. With a number of really well done (and for once, relatively unexpected) twists and turns, Park keeps the viewer guessing until virtually the last moment of the film.

  • Summary: A stupendous effort from a new filmmaker, New World is definitely worth seeing, and the Well Go USA blu-ray is a great way to do that. Recommended.

New World

High-Def Digest
11 July 2013
  • Conclusion: 'New World' certainly isn't offering anything the world hasn't seen in terms of undercover cops and the criminal organizations they're attempting to infiltrate, but what it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in style and presentation. This isn't a terribly poignant film, as it often favors telegraphed twists or shots of shocking violence over character development. Still, the movie manages to be engrossing and entertaining throughout.

New World Movie Review

  • Summary: South Korean gangster film is long, at times violently brutal, and pretty predictable, at least until the end. It's pretty much your average shoot-em-up.
