South Korea has long made the best crime films, and New World is no exception. You may get lost in the plot twists -- this is not a film to watch with half your brain turned off -- but if you make it to the end, it's hard to argue with what you saw. Min-sik Ch'oe is at his weary, skeezy best.

I have watched many gangster movie but this one was far way higher than my expectation. The end is Dramatically outstanding beyond my prediction !! All the main male actors have their tremendous performance. The story was intense from the beginning to the end. Such a 100% Great Korean movie !!

I had to watch this twice just because it demands your complete attention. The layers of intrigue, political maneuvering and emotional yet subtle character development make this classy crime thriller outstanding. As a fan of "The Departed" I was also pleased to see various parallels between the two films...and fans of the former can look forward to an equally unsettling amount of plot-twists in "New World" as well as an ending that leaves viewers with a need to sit back and adjust.

Honestly rented this on a lark because I had an extra slot. Very glad I did. They just don't make crime movies like this any more: smart, clean, tight. It kept me what was going to happen next, which is a rarity for me I'm sad to say. I recommend this movie if you're a fan of the gangster/mob movies for their drama more so than their violence. Surprisingly, not a blood fest. I know, I didn't think they made gangster movies without gallons of blood, but alas, here we are. If you're not a fast reader (subtitled) this may not be good for you. Otherwise, brilliant movie.

Good gangster movie but I did not like the ending

An under cover cop, who managed to rise high up into the top echelon of the criminal organization, was assigned by his police handler to back his immediate crime boss to succeed the chairmanship when the syndicate chairman was killed unexpectedly in an auto accident ... started out like another movie with similar theme but took quite a different turn in closing.
