It is intense and highly violent, offering some terrific and dynamic actions scenes. The heart of the plot is based on a spare of the moment decision made by Sun-woo, which in turn brings about dyer consequences. The story is well developed, leading to a conclusion that is left open for interpretation. What I found interesting about this film was how an act of mercy shown by Sun-woo caused such violence to break out. Perhaps even more mysterious is wondering why this particular assignment caused Sun-woo to question his ethics, especially when you consider how unattached he was to the couple involved. In short, the movie is well shot and well driven, definitely worth your time.
