New World (Park Hoon-jung, 2013)

Park Hoon-jung's thriller New World is too twisty by half, with so many upheavals that the plot cannot remotely support them all. Even so, it is elevated by a few dynamic setpieces, especially a late assassination attempt in a parking deck that at last matches the frame to the outlandish lurches of the narrative. Would that the rest of the film could match its heights.

My full review of the film is up at Spectrum Culture.
