Critic Reviews of "Commitment"Philadelphia InquirerDecember 06, 2013
Lots of family tragedy, saccharine love, and high-impact tae kwon do.New York TimesDecember 05, 2013
For all the shooting, knifing and nattering about sleeper cells, the film feels weirdly static and terminally tired.Seattle TimesDecember 05, 2013
In this expansive, even elegant movie, Myung-hoon turns from assassin to knight-errant in pursuit of a virtue he barely has time to understand. His rapid evolution is nothing short of moving.Washington PostDecember 05, 2013
The filmmakers are committed to tragic romanticism. If they muster few thrills and no surprises, at least they don't stoop to a happy ending.Village VoiceDecember 03, 2013
When Commitment isn't a perfectly forgettable action film, it's either an oil-thin melodrama or a charbroiled treat for meatheads.Movie MezzanineMarch 13, 2014
Commitment may not be the next big K-cinema import, but it's a fine display of solid craftsmanship.NYC Movie GuruDecember 30, 2013
An entertaining, well-cast action thriller, but it grows increasingly mindless, pedestrian, contrived and convoluted.TheDivaReview.comDecember 07, 2013
Enjoyable, if slightly tepid teenage spy actioner and a must-see for fans of KPop star T.O.P of Big Bang, Commitment's mix of gunplay and hand-to-hand combat is harder and bloodier than one might reckon for the film's expected demographicFilm Journal InternationalDecember 04, 2013
The story of an undercover spy caught in a web of intrigue, this South Korean import slams North Korean ruthlessness and treachery via a tale that's derivative and-in both dramatic and political terms-frustratingly shallow.
