4.0 out of 5 stars A movie with heart., 21 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Man From Nowhere [DVD] (DVD)
The Man from Nowhere is not exactly unique. The premise is a young girl who is kidnapped by drug-dealers/ organ traffickers after her mother get's involved with them. Her neighbor is a mysterious young man who owns a pawnshop and while he doesn't show it to her face, he cares deeply for her and she is his only friend in the world. What follows is a riveting ride featuring the somewhat reluctant main character in his quest to bring back the young girl. The cinematography is superb, as is the acting and the writing. The pace is also good, and we have a nice mix of action and story at the start to make Cha Tae-sik's attachment to the girl believable, the action gets more involved and quicker as we progress. The acting is good, Bin Won is convincing and for a change so are the villains, they aren't over the top comic book evil, they are just criminals, and the big surprise is that Sae-ron Kim manages to play the annoying child character without being annoying, an excellent performance from her as well. The action sequences are well done, violent without being very gory, some elaborate martial arts and some simple brutality. Entertainingly, the movie was beautifully crafted. I was at my seat all throughout enjoying every moment. This comes highly recommended especially if you like Korean action films, even though it has some similarities to some Hollywood films like Leon and Taken, I still thought it was great. Do yourself a favor and check this movie out.
