Didn't police search warrant the entire house at the end?


It makes no sense. Of course they must have, and ended up finding the bunker.

I doubt they'd try to look behind a big ass shelf that looked to be stuck to the wall, and they had no reason to expect that he was still in the house

I'm sorry I just don't buy that. Surely the idea of him still being inside must have gone through the police's heads at some point. Likewise to the point of there being a hidden place. If the maid knew most mansions had one of those, then surely the police must also be aware of this concept. I also think it's weird that the previous owners never told the Park family about that room. I mean, apparently it's there some of the core of their electricity comes from too?

You're looking for realism where it doesn't exist. This is a movie where an entire family is able to swiftly and successfully deceive another entire family into employing them under pretenses that are never once questioned or investigated. Bong is a genre man, and this film, like most genre films, requires massive suspension of disbelief.

I agree 100 percent.
