Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Every scene does its job, tears flowing on cue.
Fresh: A familiar yet compelling South Korean courtroom drama, propelled by Song Kang-ho's strong performance as an unlikely hero.
Rotten: "The Attorney" is on the side of justice, but it's a ham-fisted dramatization of real-life events that mistakes anger for persuasion.
Fresh: The movie is carried by its rousing pro- democracy message and a lively performance from the versatile leading man ...
Based on true event by Roh Moohyun, one of the greatest president in South Korea.
A beautiful story with an amazing cast. It is one of those movies that went straight to every vein in my body. It sent signals of love, courage, and virtues that are rare human qualities today. It made me want to join his protest.
And just the right touch of humor to balance out the intensity.
One of my all-time favorite movies
I’m a sucker for a movie where the little guy takes on the big guy, especially when it’s about fighting for freedom. I love this movie.
