Mokpo Harbor, Gangster’s Paradise” is a Korean Gangster Comedy, so right away there are certain things you can expect. As with the “My Wife is a Gangster” films and various others, 90% of the film will be played for laughs — that is, until the moment (always toward the end) when the filmmaker decides it’s time to get serious. At this point a movie that had resembled “Police Academy” will suddenly turn into “Scarface”, with the whole thing drenched in overly melodramatic moments only possible in Asian films. As with formulaic Hollywood schlock, the Korean Gangster Comedies have become so generic that they’re now nothing more than connect-the-dots filmmaking.
