WARNING: Keep in mind, "The Man From Nowhere" has considerably more blood, gore, and violence than most movies. It didn't bother me, but if you have a weak tolerance to these things, then this movie may not be very pleasant for you. Originally, I was looking for a movie to watch to kill some time. I kept scrolling down and down but nothing really caught my eye. "Sunny" sounded ok, and "The Man From Nowhere" was even better; still not quite what I wanted, but the options were starting to get pretty slim; and since it was ranked #2, I decided to trust the statistics. Now I feel EXTREMELY guilty that I was so hesitant to watch this movie. I should not have taken it so lightly. In the beginning I kept thinking how this movie reminded me of the Hollywood movie "Taken". They both have a lot of fast-paced action, a sense of justice, a feeling of wanting to protect something important, and a seriously kick-ass hero to dish it out. :) (though in my personal interest, Won Bin is quite a bit more attractive than Liam Neeson;)) I loved the little girl~! I couldn't help it. She was adorable ^^ More than that, this movie would be nothing without her. Won Bin did an incredible job. I haven't seen very many Korean movies, but I honestly believe he could be the best actor in Korea, and one of the best in the world. Amazing, I'm telling you, amazing. This movie made me laugh, and made me cry. That's not something you can do easily in action movies:) Now, I think I'm going to go watch it again :D
