The Korean comedy Luck-Key was released on October 21, 2016. A professional assassin (Hae-jin Yoo) falls in a bath house and gets amnesia. A down on his luck actor (Joon Lee) switches locker keys with him and assumes his identity. When Lee sees a girl (Ji-yeon Lim) on a TV monitor, he falls in love with her and tries to find her, while Yoo becomes a famous TV star.
There is a lot of good comedy and action scenes in this movie. The acting was adequate. I had problems with the directing and the musical score. Korean humor seems to be a bit more conservative than American humor. It reminded me of American comedies of the 1960s. There was very little swearing, which was nice, and the fight scenes were very good. Hae-jin Yoo’s character could have been made clearer. Was he a bad cop or a professional assassin? If he was a cop, where did he get the money to afford all of the weapons, computers, and passports that he had?
The acting was good as I said and I suppose the film was funny. It kept me entertained, though. I would recommend that you watch it. I give it 3 stars out of 5.
