Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Slow yet powerful, Nameless Gangster pales in comparison to New World but deserves some credit for making you feel like such a big part of this law breaking family."
‑ Chris Sawin, Examiner.com
"Nameless Gangster does what a number of recent Korean films manage to do so well, mix genre elements with serious social and political realities. This mix makes the films richer in their themes and emotional impact."
‑ Beth Accomando, KPBS.org
"Yoon Jong-bin's film has the epic sweep and detail of a gangster movie like "Scarface," but none of the mythologizing."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"A well-acted, intelligent and riveting thrill ride that will take your breath away. It's one of the most powerful gangster films in years."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
