5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on May 2 2011
Format: DVD
This film is a little scorcher, what it lacks in originality it more than makes up for in pace, tempo, tension and buckets of action. The plot without spoiling it is fairly simple. A former Special Forces operative has gone into semi hiding, taking up a job as a downtown pawn broker. He deliberately cuts himself off from the outside world, except his young neighbour So-mi.

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.

I rank it with top notch "theme" movies such as:

The PROFESSIONAL (Jean Reno)

KISS OF THE DRAGON w Jet Li & Bridget Fonda

The Transporter - Statham

SAFE - Statham

TAKEN - Liam Neeson

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.

“You can absolutely say this could be connected to other movies, in terms of action an story,
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,
Widescreen 2.35:1
Runtime 119 Min.
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Korean With English Dub an Subtitles.

Like other Korean films such as "Oldboy", what makes this movie work is it's meticulously crafted use of violence using minimal (apparent) special effects. The movie expertly sucks viewers in with scenes that merely imply violence, waiting until your imagination is fully engaged before depicting the real action which serves to enhance the impact of these scenes all the more. There are no fountains of blood or fireball explosions, no walking away from multi-story falls or dodging endless rounds of bullets from a dozen heavily-armed opponents, and by avoiding these Hollywood clichés "The Man From Nowhwere" allows getting stabbed with a knife to be as serious as it would be in real life. The writing, directing, and acting are all excellent (certain extras notwithstanding), delivering a movie full of memorable scenes despite a somewhat typical plot. Overall, the "The Man From Nowhere" is a solid 8/10.

Amazing movie, one of the best I have seen in the past year. gritty and well paced for me. The action scenes are fast and to the point in a way that makes them shine, true that the build-up can be a bit long for some but for me was fine. The little girl's performance is amazing too. Even if the story is nothing new it is a masterpiece of intensity. The editing and cinematography deserve notice too even if some screenshots are taken from other classic movie (you will know if have seen the other one). The closing scene was a bit too much though but it is the director's vision. Nevertheless Great stuff and I had a really good time watching this one.
