Then a drug deal goes very bad and So-mis's mother is involved leading the drug bosses and police to come calling. Then it all kicks off. We are told the story of Tae-shik in flash back and how he came to be as isolated as he now chooses, and how he is actually an excellent if not ruthless killing machine.
This then is a full throttle re take on the `Leon;' formula with a Korean twist. It is superbly acted and even if some of the `baddies' are a bit two dimensional it works as they are surrounded by so many more fully developed characters. The cinematography is brilliant as I have come to expect from South Korea and the action is first rate. The plot may be simple but you do not feel that whilst you are watching as it just carries you along with the momentum. This is in Korean with English sub titles that are very easy to read. With a running time of 114 minutes, this is not a short film, but it felt more like half an hour. This really is a great action film, with a bit of heart, it does have an 18 cert, so if you are on the squeamish side you may be put off. I found it just top rate entertainment and thoroughly recommend.

Let God raise up Men of JUDGMENT like this - and the other movies - movie portrays.
Oh, and also comparable to MAN ON FIRE w Denzel Washington.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Justice & JUDGMENT are themes that are near and dear to our Father in Heaven. Amen.
but if it’s done on a massive scale of brutality, like it’s done here, I will say it could stand out on
it’s own, like the knife fight, don’t forget the BMW scene as well, but the one thing it has,
Sad very Sad, to think that people who do these downright nasty deeds, have a court date, But,
not here, I will be your Judge Jury an Executioner, with my relentless pursuit of your demised,
I keep saying this for people who like these type of movies, the subtitles are a breeze to get through,
but there is an English dub, I did not use it because I like to keep it in it’s original form,
watching this guy (Won Bin) with his gracefulness an such a determine style of playing this character,
is nothing more than outstanding, people you need to see this, thanks’ for reading,
please don't hold your breath, i'm good,

The movie chugs along at a steady pace and there is a decent amount of action but for the most part it is forgettable. Read morePublished on April 14 2012 by Sorpse
