Captain Ahab, employed by the private military firm Black Lizard, is assigned a covert CIA mission: infiltrate a secret underground bunker beneath the Korean DMZ and eliminate a high-value target. However, the mission takes an unexpected turn when they discover the target is the Supreme Leader of North Korea, with an immense bounty on his head. Ahab's team defies the CIA's orders and goes after the prize. As they navigate danger from both the CIA and a rival PMC squad, the bunker is destroyed, leaving Ahab critically injured. With the Supreme Leader also gravely wounded, an unlikely alliance forms as they must cooperate with an elite North Korean doctor to save their lives and escape the ruined bunker.

Confusing

Take Point (2018) aka PMC: The Bunker

I had to pause this movie after watching for 10 minutes because I didnt understand what was happening. So i had to search google for the plot. (I watched this mainly because Ha Jung Woo looked hot with this haircut lol)

So this movie is about a group of illegals hired by US to fake kidnap the King so that the current president will gain sympathy and the votes in the upcoming elections (or so i thought haha the plot was so confusing!). But the kidnapping failed when there was another group who set the trap and almost killed the King. Now US wants to abort and bury the mission by leaving Ahab's team to fend on their own.

With a bad leg, Ahab had to manage the whole operation in a room, instructing his team on what to do, fighting off the hostiles, while trying to revive the King. Good thing he was able to work with the NK doctor and try to get out of the place.

This action thriller felt too long, with so many things happening - elections, kidnapping, north korea, china, illegals, betrayal, manipulation etc. I was mostly curious how he will get out alive. Ahab is brave and decisive, even when it's a matter of life and death, he chose to save his team up to the last minute. Didnt expect that his parachute story will happen again in the third act, but it was impressive for Ahab to save himself, and two other people while falling down from the plane! (Just like Mission Impossible). Also liked the bromance between Ahab and the NK doctor.

The camera was shaky and made me dizzy at times, but I think it was meant as if we were there inside the room, so it wasnt such a big deal to me.

Rating: 7.5/10

This review may contain spoilers
The only main cast Korean guy here, Ha Jung-woo, from Along with the Gods. It seems to mimic as though it's an Hollywood movie, but really the executing of this movie is bad. Most of the conversations here are in English, except for when he is communicating with the North Koreans. For the first 30 minutes, the cinematography here is really very bad. While trying to make the intense tension look between both parties, but the zoom-and-focus shots between each shots, combined with the handheld feel of the camera, is really very dizzy. Tracking is good in times like this, but the tracking shots here is as though it is shooting Cloverfield.

It has good cast of people, and script written. Footages of MIM-104F Patriot (PAC-3) clearing a SCUD. Although I find it impossible to be in the situation where the Captain is single-handedly doing sit-rep for the whole command centre. He has been saving the key victim, while at the same time looking at the situation inside the bunker, from each turning point and planning their escape route.

Will add another 0.5 score, for having an V-22 Osprey for medivac, and it recounts back when he was doing his parachuting to save another person life. Just so because he couldn't let go of what is the responsibility laid on him. This was the part I didn't expected, I thought was already SAR moment for ending. That entire sequence from plane, to airborne to landing all in the single shot. It's never the end, until you have safely reached home.
