Running 7 Dogs, aka "Dawn of 7"

Part of an interesting and unique genre common in Korean Cinema: the Organized Crime Comedy. This one is so overtly comic, that mostly comedians are cast in the various gangsters, mobsters, and street thugs.

The narrative seems to borrow heavily from Quentin Tarantino and is similar to the later Smokin' Aces or Guy Ritchie films, where numerous criminal interests collide. However, the directing is not skillful enough that unfolding the narrative non-chronolgoically doesn't really seem ot have an interesting dramatic effect, rather makes the film almost confusing at times, making the audience wonder as to why certain scenes are shown at certain times.
