The Man From Nowhere (2010)

Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

The Man From Nowhere (Ajeossi) was biggest and certainly most popular movie of 2010 in South Korea, and currently probably is one of the most well known Korean films of past few years in west. Written and directed by Jeong-beom Lee who had already proved himself as capable director in his debut Cruel Winter Blues from 2006.

Plot summary is simple, a quiet pawnshop keeper with a violent past takes on a drug and organ trafficking ring in hope of saving the child who is his only friend.

Story itself is quite the cliche of action genre, but don't be discouraged by that, whats important is the raw energy and drive that this movie is accompanied by. Young movie star Bin Won who just year ago played shy and quiet boy in fantastic drama Mother, now takes complete makeover and becomes action movie superhero delivering spectacular performance as a powerful lead.

If you are a fan of thrillers that have likable and cool male characters, lots of action, and in general are really stylish, you will love it. If you like movies like Man on Fire, Léon: The Professional, Taken you will love it.

I do love it. It has everything that makes a great action movies. Everything.

A must see.

And Hollywood doesn't sleep, remake right were quickly acquired.

Blu-ray | DVD from Amazon.
