That scene where Mister and the cameraman simultaneously jump through a third story window was one of the better "How did they do that!?" action stunts I've ever seen.
Also I love non-American action movies:
Bad Guy: How did he get a gun? Is he a cop or something??
The Man From Nowhere looks like it will be Korea's answer to Léon the Professional (pitched younger for both characters), but soon turns into a Bourne or, by the level of darkness and violence, rather a Punisher film. And an affecting one at that. The film keeps its action mostly off screen in the first half, only unleashing it when we're good and primed (about at the point where the bad guys get thoroughly despicable - Asian cinema really knows how to ramp up the evil, and that's a warning as much as it is a promise). If you can take the violence, I think you'll find this quite satisfying.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
