The President's Last Bang (2005)

2 Stars (out of 4)

Shoddy Politic

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Reportedly based on a true incident, Im Sang-soo's The President's Last Bang depicts the events leading up to South Korean President Park Chung-hee's assassination at the hands of one of his own men. Some have called it a political black comedy in line with Dr. Strangelove, but I found it muddled and un-engaging.
