We gave it an A-

Two disciplined South Korean intelligence agents, romantic Ryu and music-hating Lee, are entrusted with tracking down a female super-assassin on the eve of a grand diplomatic dog-and-pony show. Directed by Kang Je-Gyu, Shiri,/b> is the big, gorgeous espionage thriller that catapulted sleek mainstream Korean cinema onto the world stage; it sparkles with sophisticated production values, frank political skepticism, and a finely wrought aquatic metaphor that threads through the propulsive plot like a silver river.
