Gang Pae, a ruthless mafia member, finds solace in solitary movie screenings despite his violent reputation. Similarly, actor Su Ta harbors an aggressive streak, having injured fellow actors on set. When they cross paths in a bar, Gang Pae requests an autograph, leading to a tense standoff. Later, as Su Ta faces a halt in filming due to his temper, he remembers Gang Pae's offer to perform real fight scenes. They strike a unique deal, but it means real danger on set.

Punch! This movie is like a punch. Weird description, I know.

There were a lot of clever, artsy, indy details built into this movie that I got a real kick out of:

1) They played up the fact that this is a movie with a movie in a very obvious and clever way.

2) So Ji Sub's name is Kang Pae (gangster) and Kang Ji Hwan's name is Su Ta (star).

3) The scripts for the "movie" in the shooting scenes were the actual script for the movie.

4) And the ending...

I loved the intensity of both Ji Sub and Ji Hwan, their acting and characters. I loved that Ji Sub always wore black and Ji Hwan wore white. I loved the spoiled angry child in Su Ta and the way he got in over his head so deeply. Kang Ji Hwan always impresses me..Always.

I loved So Ji Sub's anger...his pure rage. His character's desperation and desperate grab for something more in his life, something he wanted, to make a change. The frustration of his inability to understand what to do with it once he'd grabbed on. And how his past, his personality and his lot in life were like a greased palm that made it impossible for him to keep hold. And then the terrible acceptance...He doesn't have to say much. That is the beauty of his acting. (sorry fangirl)

Watch it for the punch...beginning, middle and end.

First of all you can't go wrong watching So Ji Sub and Kang Ji Hwan in a movie together!!! This is a movie within a movie and both main characters have a problem with distinguishing reality from fiction. Both Ji Sub/Kang Pae and Ji Hwan/Su Ta are so intense. They play off of eachother very well.

I am a total Ji Sub fan...he plays dark and scary very well.

If you are looking to watch something violent, then this is so the movie to watch!!! It is great!!!
