A group of people who, under the guise of a taxi company, take revenge for people who have no other recourse.
The general concept, which is pretty awesome. Those people gathering so as to help others get the revenge they themselves were denied is a nice premise.
I also like the crew, and especially the friendship between Le Je-Hoon’s Kim Do-Ki and Pyo Ye-Jin’s Go Eun. They have a tacit understanding that I absolutely love.
The music is also really good—I never thought I’d say this, but I’m loving the 70s vibe it’s got going on.
The sheer violence of it. The crimes committed are absolutely horrifying. Every time you think you’ve reached the bottom, the show reveals a new layer of horror. I’d wondered why someone on twitter had asked if it fell into the horror genre—because this clearly seemed like more of a thriller than anything. But now I really understand the question, because yes, this is horror in a way. The horrors only Man can bring down upon their fellow Man, and maybe the most terrifying of all as a result.
On top of that, the show has a habit of making the bad guys pee themselves in terror. While I could get over it if it happened once, it’s been twice already in four episodes (once per case), and I don’t want this to become a trend.
Finally, the fight scenes are badly filmed to the point of being barely legible. It’s annoying because I’d like to enjoy Kim Do-Ki’s combat ability to the max, but as it is, I’m not feeling anything at all.
