Sure, director Lee Seung-jun’s “The Spy: Undercover Operation” isn’t going to re-invent the wheel. Heck, it’s basically “True Lies” with less muscles and a better looking villain. Nevertheless, I chuckled a time or two during this English-subtitled trailer, especially at the payoff delivered by the woman in the control room. The rest of the film looks pretty amusing, too, if you’re in the mood for a little Tomfoolery without too many expectations, that is.
Check out a first trailer for “The Spy: Undercover Operation”. Just imagine the hero as a less muscular version of Arnold Schwarzenegger. (So who is Tom Arnold?)
Chul-soo is one of Korea’s best intelligence agents: he can accomplish any given mission. One day, a mysterious explosion takes place in Seoul. Chul-soo flies to Thailand on a mission to rescue a person who holds clues to the incident. Meanwhile, Young-hee goes on a business trip to Thailand and gets entangled with Chul-soo’s mission. Will he accomplish his mission and save his wife at the same time?
Starring Sul Kyung-gu and So-ri Moon, with “X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s” Daniel Henney as the charming bad guy.
The film opens in South Korea this September.
