My Life Is A Gangster 3 조폭 마누라 3 (2006)

My Life Is A Gangster 3

first of all, the film barely has anything to do with the title. she wasn't his wife to begin with, but a "guest" from Hong Kong. she was laying low from gangsterism rivalry in Hong Kong. she choose Korea, where her mother is. nor did the film touched on gansterism politics. its more of a personal thingy .. he, on the other hand, is the underling of her father's friend - a Korean mob boss. he was ordered to take care of her. which turned out to be her taking care of him. the story kinda lacked of focus. there are no real danger, nor tension. just enough actions to show that she is not some girl to mess with. the love story ain't that interesting either. average. no lovey-dovey neither. the translation joke started out to be quite funny n enjoyable. it managed to lighten the boring sequence of the film. but then again, too much of a good thing cheapens it. the Korean translator girl gets pretty darn annoying as the film progressed .. *speechless* anyway .. watch the film if you are a fan of Shu Qi (舒淇). won't recommend it otherwise. gotta admit that she looked pretty cool in the film !! in a manly way though. i wonder if that's a good thing to start with .. hm .. *sweat*
