Film Review:The Man From Nowhere
A very recent Korean Action/Thriller of vengeance and suspense directed by Lee Jeong-beom and starring Won Bin. The film starts out with Cha Tae-sik, a reclusive pawnshop owner that befriends a young girl, So-mee. Her mother is a junkie that steals from a drug trafficking gang and that leads to the mother and daughter being kidnapped until they find the heroin. This leads a gang of thugs into Cha tae-sik's pawnshop and they get a little surprise about his fighting ability. A former special forces agent that went into hiding and now holding a one man war against a ring of gangsters. The fighting sequences in the film are amazing and simply made me jump out of my seat. Accompanied by a very stylish cinematography made this simply one film to watch. Looking forward to more films from this director.
