YesAsia Editorial Description

Korea's remake of the 2007 Hong Kong police thriller Eye in the Sky, Cold Eyes transplants the intense battle of wits and surveillance to the streets of Seoul. Sol Kyung Gu and Jung Woo Sung step into the opposing roles originally played by Simon Yam and Tony Leung Ka Fai – a grisly surveillance unit leader and a coldly meticulous criminal mastermind. Also on the police surveillance team are Han Hyo Ju as the impulsive greenhorn and 2PM member Lee Jun Ho in his film debut. Co-directed by Jo Eui Seok (The World of Silence) and Kim Byung Seo, Cold Eyes is the rare remake that lives up to the original. The tense crime thriller stays true to the original's storyline while also setting itself apart in character and tone through strong performances, impeccable pacing and nerve-wracking chase scenes.

After taking an on-site test, Yoon Joo (Han Hyo Ju) becomes the newest member of the police surveillance unit led by veteran Detective Hwang (Sol Kyung Gu). Through tracking devices and good old legwork, the unit's task is to gather intel for other teams by finding, following and observing suspects, but never engaging. While Yoon Joo's taking her test, elsewhere in town a bank robbery occurs in broad daylight. The entire job is orchestrated down to the last second by the leader of the group, James (Jung Woo Sung), who observes from a nearby rooftop and allows no mistakes.

Detective Hwang and his team begin combing the area for the bank robbers, gradually narrowing the field and closing in on the suspects. James, however, catches scent of the police and stays one ruthless step ahead, escalating the cat-and-mouse game to life and death stakes.

This edition comes with commentary, making-of, action and production design featurettes, deleted scenes, poster shooting and trailer.

Professional Review of "Cold Eyes (DVD) (2-Disc) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

December 30, 2013

It's remake time again, as the 2007 Milkyway outing Eye in the Sky from director Yau Nai Hoi and producers Johnnie To and Tsui Siu Ming gets a Korean makeover in Cold Eyes. The film was directed by duo Jo Eui Seok (The World of Silence and Kim Byung Seo (a noted cinematographer who recently worked on the likes of Dangerous Liaisons and Hindsight), and stars Sol Kyung Gu (Public Enemy), Jung Woo Sung (Reign of Assassins) and Han Hyo Ju (Masquerade) in the roles originally played by Simon Yam, Tony Leung Ka Fai and Kate Tsui. Pulling in more than five million admissions at the local box office, the film was one of the biggest Korean hits of 2013, and also proved popular with the critics, Han Hyo Ju winning Best Actress at the Blue Dragon Awards – all of which is no mean feat for a remake.

The film kicks off in similar fashion to the original, with police surveillance team new recruit Yoon Joo (Han Hyo Ju) being put through a test on the streets of Seoul by veteran Detective Hwang (Sol Kyung Gu). Earning the codename "Piglet" Yoon Joo joins the team in tracking and gathering information on suspects, while sticking to the shadows and never getting involved in arrests themselves. Things change when they are assigned to identify and stalk a gang of ruthless bank robbers, led by the methodical and vicious James (Jung Woo Sung), a mastermind who watches over his henchmen from the rooftops. As Yoon Joo and Hwang close in on the criminals, James becomes aware of their presence, and a deadly test of wits ensues.

Although Eye in the Sky is perhaps not one of the more famous Milkyway productions, it has its fair share of fans and is an interesting choice for a Korean remake, even though the very notion is probably enough to make some wince. Thankfully, this is one of the rare instances of a remake getting pretty much everything right, Jo Eui Seok and Kim Byung Seo managing to stay faithful to the original while successfully adapting it to a new setting. Certainly, just as Eye, like most Milkyway productions, was very much imbued with the character of Hong Kong, Cold Eyes has a similarly strong sense of place, making great use of its Seoul setting. The films both have the same strong depth of character, and though the Korean version is perhaps slightly more driven by events, it features some very impressive and substantial writing, and there's a very pleasing feeling that real work went into the script and into fleshing out the various relationships between the team members. The teacher pupil bond between Hwang and Yoon Joo is very much it is heart, and is compelling and believable, with Sol Kyung Gu and Han Hyo Ju on great form. The film's most obvious change comes with James, who is this time working for sinister fence Kim Byung Ok rather than for himself, though this works well and adds to the karmic undertones that are suggested throughout.

There's also a bit more action thrown into the mix, though thankfully this has been done in a thoughtful and considered manner, and the extra chase scenes and violence fit very well, partly since Jo and Kim do a great job of orchestrating their set pieces. At the same time, the action never gets in the way of the focus on procedural details, the film going to some lengths to depict even the smallest nuances of the surveillance work, and this makes things even more fascinating and convincing. The sense of realism helps ensure that the film is tense right from the start, getting maximum mileage from its cat and mouse scheming, and with it being made clear that James is a particularly brutal and controlled villain, it's never too clear whether or not the protagonists will make it out alive, even for those who have seen the original. The film looks fantastic too, with some superb cinematography and great production values, and this gives it the air of a slick, classy blockbuster, the money spent all being up there on screen.

Cold Eyes is a minor triumph as a result, emerging not only as a very worthy and accomplished new version of an already excellent film, but as a top notch thriller in its own right and one of the best Korean genre offerings of the year. Jo Eui Seok and Kim Byung Seo have done a great job here, and with a delightful cameo at the end providing the icing on the cake, it really does demand to be seen.

Refreshed and Refreshing Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I am a fan of Johnnie To and I love Eye in the Sky - watched it twice. It was a clever, gritty and well-paced movie that had me glued to the screen. For this reason, I had eagerly anticipated the DVD for Cold Eyes. The Korean version, updated with all the new technology, was edgy, fast-paced and sleek. In fact, I felt as if I was watching a new movie instead of a re-make. The cameo appearance by Simon Yam was such a classic moment for fans of the Hong Kong movie. Cold Eyes was definitely a worthwhile buy.
