Gangland boss Kang suspects his girlfriend of being unfaithful and sends his trusted right-hand man Sun Woo, to sort out the problem. In an uncharacteristic moment of weakness, Sun Woo falls for Hee Su, taken in by her grace and humanity. When Sun Woo finally catches Huei-Su with her lover, he finds himself unable to kill her and allows her to flee. This infuriates Kang and orders his thugs to savagely beat him and leave him for dead. However, they do not finish the job and when Sun Woo eventually revives himself, he has nothing but vengeance on his mind.
Cast & Credits
I'm not very good with reviews but I thought I had to write one anyway 'cause this is the best movie I have ever seen!
Watched this movie 'cause it is directed by Kim Jewoon and I have always liked his movies.
The story might not be original, but who get's tired of revenge stories?
Really, who does?
For you who likes great action scenes, amazing fighting and bloody tourture scenes mixed with beautiful soundtracks, this is really something for you!
The acting is superb, with two of the best actors I know of. Lee Byung Hun and Kim Yeong Cheol. (Some of you might know the two of them from the IRIS Drama where they have a similar relationship.) They do not act, they ARE their characters in my point of view. That is how good their acting is.
The music is great and really thought trough. Not just some b-class composers work.
I have rewatched this movie four times now and it is still my favorite!
So all in all, it's a huge piece of fantastic art!
