An extremist Taliban group takes a group of Korean tourists hostage in Afghanistan. The Korean government dispatches Jae Ho, known as one of Korea’s most skilled diplomats, to handle the situation. Once he arrives, he asks for the Afghan government’s cooperation and uses every means possible to free the hostages. However, Jae Ho’s efforts are in vain. Due to his failure, he’s forced to work with Dae Sik, a special agent who is an expert on the Middle East. As they begin making their move to get to the Taliban, the first hostage death occurs. With nowhere else to turn, the two become unlikely allies in a race against time to save the rest of the hostages. (Source: HanCinema) ~~ Based on the true events of the Korean hostage crisis in Afghanistan. Edit Translation

The final act is the main highlight

It surprisingly turns out that this is less of an action movie than ever, in contrast to its movie poster and trailer that screams adrenaline. The focus on the tension between Hwang Jung Min as diplomat, and Hyun Bin as NIS agent is the main driver that pushes the movie forward, but that could be a hit or miss sometimes. The final act will be the main highlight of this movie, Hwang Jung Min's sheer amount of acting skills during the final negotiation is so prominent that it's keeping the audience at the edge of seats induced in fear. Overall the cinematography was shot with great attention to details, and a storyline that works well, it's still a brilliant movie to be fair.

Not my normal watch, however, it was based on a true story, so i thought i would give it a go. I have memories of this happening. I thought the story came over very well. How much of it is fact we will never know.
I really enjoyed watching this film. The pace, the feeling of chaos, the diplomatic infighting that must go on, the old guard verses a more proactive approach. I thought the two male leads did a fantastic job backed up by the translator, the support actors did a really good job adding to the atmosphere. The cinematography was brilliant, capturing the stunning scenery beautifully. i believe it was filmed in Jordan a country i would love to have visited.
All in all a entertaining watch which i will probably visit again.
