Vengeance never dies.

Much in the same spirit as the hit film Taegukgi, Kwak Kyung Taek's latest is a big budget blockbuster that seeks to comment on North and South Korean tensions.

In this tense, pulse-pounding adventure, a pirate by the name of Myeong Shin (Jang Dong-kun), a rebellious upstart, defects from North Korea only to find himself turned away by South Korean authorities. Furious at this blatant snub, the fanatically motivated Myeong Shin decides to exact vengeance on South Korea, engaging in a level of terrorism that could very well result in numerous deaths across both Koreas. Myeong Shin's opponent in this high seas adventure is Kang Se Jong (Lee Jeong-jae), an honorable naval officer who'll do whatever it takes to bring Myeong Shin to justice...

It's a 6 or 7 out of 10 film:thumbsup:

Same Q here... I still dont understand what a 'good deal' works out to in this forum...I would have thought a movie for less than 5 quid with an IMDB rating of atleast 7 with possible mainstream appeal would interest folks but I see posts about random movies with no recognisable names or even ratings being posted as HOT !! Maybe I'm just too thick !!

Ok here goes. IMO.
1) If all we had posted was mainstream movies then what about the folk who HATE mainstream movies; isn't it fair on them that they get to buy a bargain?
2) IMDB is not the lord almighty of what is or isn't a good movie and film is a matter of opinion; just like music. Anyone bought a Spice Girls CD lately, but jeeeesus, they spent forever dominating the charts?
3) If the price of something is cheaper than everywhere else then I reckon that's a good deal. Sure if it's only pennies cheaper than most places then it isn't.
4) Maybe you should buy a film without recognisable names for a few quid and you might find that you too end up realising thatt Hollywood is to film as MacDonalds is to restaurants. But, I do like a burger every now and then

I am voting hot because it is good to try something a lil different. I saw a korean horror movie on tv last year ]http//ww…72/. I think they did a season of them on weekday nights. There was something about reading the subtitles and it increasing the fear factor by 50% which scared the carps out of me. I like those Japanese movies starring Takeshi Kitano:)

Great film, well worth £3 of anyone's money.

Yeah, it's not a bad film at all. 95% of my movies are asian, either Japanese, Chinese, Korean or Thai. Compared to western films I find them a lot more entertaining, especially Jap/Hong Kong films of the 80's-90's where budgets were tight, film crews were daring/spontaneous and shot a lot of stuff 'on the sly' and the actors did their own stunts. Such dedication.
Comapre that to American movies where £100,000,000 is spent on an overworked script and body doubles are used for every actor when they do something dangerous like tie a shoelace.
