The series of one mysterious Bad MutherF&$#r, and South Korea did no wrong with this smash hit.
Amazing movie with great action sequences and a touching story. One of the better action films to come out. slow moving but stay with it... it gets moving and does not disappoint.
The beginning was a little sappy & sometimes these SK films cast pretty boys with their hair combed over their face & we're supposed to believe they're hard as nails. But hang in there & there's some pretty brutal & VERY entertaining action to enjoy & the organ harvesting crime rich that uses child labor to make meth gets pretty dark. Not a A list pic but a solid B
This movie was so great, it had me feeling all types of emotions, I'm not even a fan of action type movies but this was a good watch.
