"A taut, elaborate narrative with poise, control and near-faultless technical execution (...) punctuated with skull-cracking combat scenes and propulsive chases.”
VARIETY

“This slick, dynamic, twist-heavy police thriller combines supercharged suspense with flashes of dark humor. Kim Seong-hoon’s A Hard Day offers a masterclass in throat-squeezing, stomach-knotting suspense.”
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
                    
“Refreshing and ultimately a great deal of fun, A Hard Day is [...] full of suspense and amusement.”

SCREEN

“A Hard Day stands as one of the best pieces of genre filmmaking to emerge from Korea in half a decade.”
