Tonight’s Movie: The Man From Nowhere

imageA 2010 South Korean movie that has been suggested to me by a few friends. I will give a longer synopsis after I watch the film.

From IMDB, a seemingly standard plot, think Leon: “A quiet pawnshop keeper with a violent past takes on a drug- and organ trafficking ring in hope of saving the child who is his only friend.”

More @ IMDB.

Update. Not as good as Leon but there were elements of very artistic camera work that was, unfortunately, too lonely in a sea of “seen it done better before.” And I hate voice overs but I had no choice. I much prefer the original language with subtitles. I can read.

More derivative than original but worth the watch if you are in the mood for a South Korean crime thriller about drug smuggling and illegal organ harvesting.

And yes, I suck at movie reviews.

I liked the aspect ratio of the film.
