The Tagline 

"Nothing to lose, nothing to compromise"


The Synopsis 

Scarred by his traumatic past, former special agent Tae-shik lives a life of solitude. His only contact to the outside world is his neighbour So-mi, a young schoolgirl with a troubled mother.

 

The Storyline

An ex-special agent CHA Tae-shik's only connection to the rest of the world is a little girl, So-mi, who lives nearby. Her mother, Hyo-jeong smuggles drugs from a drug trafficking organization and entrusts Tae-shik with the product, without letting him know. The traffickers find out about her smuggling and kidnap both Hyo-jeong and So-mi. The gang promises to release them if Tae-shik makes a delivery for them, however it actually is a larger plot to eliminate a rival drug ring leader. When Hyo-jeon's disemboweled body is discovered, Tae-shik realizes that So-mi's life may also be in danger. Tae-shik becomes enraged at the prospect that So-mi may already be dead and prepares for a battle, putting his own life at risk... 





The Warning

The movie was originally rated R for "strong bloody violence, pervasive language, drug content and brief nudity" and is definitely not for the faint heated...



The Geeks of Doom Review

"The movie is full of fast-paced and intense sequences that will keep your eyes glued to the TV, but it all plays out with some remarkable and often times beautiful cinematography. Director Jeong-beom Lee and his crew do an excellent job of offering creative shot after creative shot, helping to keep things fresh and moving forward with a certain determination, much like our antagonist, fittingly."
