Synopsis
Having once done time behind bars, CHA Tae-sik now leads a quiet life. His only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. So-mi’s mother, Hyo-jeong, smuggles drugs for a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-sik with the product. When the traffickers find out they kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. Mistaking Tae-sik for another mule, the brothers that lead the gang—Man-sik and Jong-sik—promise to release Hyo-jeong and So-mi if Tae-sik makes a delivery for them. Tae-sik makes the decision to face the outside world in order to rescue So-mi. However, the delivery was part of a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader, Mr. Oh, and Tae-sik is arrested. At the same time, Hyo-jeong’s disemboweled body is discovered, and Tae-sik realizes that So-mi’s life may also be in danger. He fights off half a dozen detectives and escapes from the police station. Now on the run, Tae-sik pursues Man-sik and Jong-sik. In the process, he discovers that their drug ring operates around kidnapped children. Stumbling upon a factory where the brothers have children’s organs removed to accommodate the drugs, Tae-sik rescues one child just before surgery and becomes enraged at the prospect So-mi may already be dead. Tae-sik prepares for a battle with Man-sik and Jong-sik, putting his own life at risk…

    excellent movie by ilovehockey

    T
    his movie was terrific from start to finish. Although, it is clear that this film definitely took the ideas from two mainstream Hollywood movies: Taken and Man On Fire, which in turn; were taken from The Professional aka Leon, it was still a very well written movie. It combined drama, suspense, action, and thrilling sequences. Won Bin, was absolutely wonderful in this and I think he definitely played into the character to make it that much more believable. I'm not particularly a huge fan of when a movie steals an idea from another one and remakes it, but if it is done well, then I have to be well impressed. And impressed I was. The little girl in this movie, did a very fine job in making her seem like the cute and innocent girl that she was portrayed to be...but, with a little bit of spunk. A movie well worth watching. I would give it perfect marks if it were not for the fact that this was a remake. Otherwise, it was a movie that I will see many times over.
