The Korean Police Force Special Crime Unit (SCU) tracks high-profile criminals using the most sophisticated surveillance technology, but the real work is accomplished by perseverance and perception. Young Ha Yoon-ju (Han Hyo-joo) wants to be one of the select few, and she seems to have the necessary skills—a photographic memory, for starters. But gruff Chief Hwang Sang-jun (Seol Kyung-gu) needs convincing. When a spectacular bank robbery occurs in broad daylight, the chief relents and puts Yoon-ju on the squad and on the trail of James (Jung Woo-sung), the cold-hearted mastermind who always seems one step ahead of the police.

Like the sudoku puzzles that the chief likes to play, both the heists and the chases in Cold Eyes are elaborately constructed. As Yoon-ju racks her memory for clues, we rewatch crucial scenes over and over and discover that the surprising solution was always hiding in plain sight.—Dave Nuttycombe

    I probably won't post it as a separate meetup, but I'm going to go to a happy hour somewhere nearby around 6:30. Reply here if you are interested in joining me.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
