As a big fan of South Korean movies I always tend to know which ones are good and which ones are rubbish. The Man from Nowhere is an amazing movie with an amazing plot. Yes SOME of the storyline is borrowed from the movie 'Taken' but this movie is a million times better with much more action.
Won Bin is an amazing actor, and this movie portrays how great he is perfectly. He sticks to the role well, and I am sure he is the reason this movie is such a big success.
I don't want to give away anything like the other reviews have, but if you love South Korean movies, and you love movies that have great action scenes you should buy this. The fight scene at the end of the movie is breathtaking, and if an action movie found a way to make me cry, then you know it's gonna be great.
Don't doubt yourself, watch this movie!!
The movie has one corpse nudity scene, some groping, and needless mf and f-bombs. The movie is straight forward action. One scene is a little awkward where there is a Chinese translator. A man would say something in English and then the translator would then say it in English also. Just one of those foreign movie things.
Also, the Blu-Ray is Region Free, so it will play on any Blu-Ray player!
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.
