Movie Review - Going by the Book

Caper movies are a special type of good mainstream fun. They are a demanding type, as the plans devised and/or thwarted and the sequence of events leading to the ending need to be both exciting and pretty hole-free. When done right, it is magic.

When a town's new police chief (Son Byeong-ho) is asked to do something about a string of bank robberies creating bad reputation for the force, he comes up with a plan to form a realistic police drill and gain the public's trust. Jeong Do-man (Jeong Jae-yeong) is a recently demoted officer who is a perfectionist about his work. He sticks to the rules religiously and has great work ethics.
