“Serial killer meets gangland pulp in midnight madness. — A string of unsolved murders leads to uneasy teamwork between a cool mobster (played with pinstripe swagger by Korean American actor Don Lee, aka Ma Dong-seok, of Train to Busan) and a blustering junior detective in The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil. A wily mix of genres and spoof-edged amusements keep it playful and intermittently thrilling —  Its fighting scenes, generally hand-to-hand and foot-to-foot combat, have a free-for-all wildness aimed at the fun-loving midnight crowd.” – Deborah Young / The Hollywood Reporter
