Typhoon

Typhoon’s plot centres on an attempt by a North Korean pirate (JANG Dong-Gun), to make a nuclear attack on the Korean Peninsula, and efforts by a South Korean agent (LEE Jung-Jae) to stop him. The agent comes to sympathize with the pirate, who grew up penniless in China after witnessing as a child the massacre of his family after a failed attempt to seek asylum in the South. Typhoon is the work of Kwak Kyung-taek, the critically acclaimed director behind the smash hit Friend and Champion and features Korean star actor Jang Dong-gun (Friend, The Promise). Shot on locations in Thailand, Korea and Russia, Typhoon is South Korea’s most expensive film ever made, with a production cost of 20 million US dollars. Typhoon set a 5-day Box Office record for the year 2005 in Korea drawing in 1.8 million people. US theatrical release by Dreamworks.

    En koreansk spionfilm, där allt inte är riktigt svart och vitt. Storyn har det klassiska upplägget med en galning som råkat få tag på radioaktivavfall och har en komplicerad plan för att hämnas på mänskligheten, och en helt igenom god kille som ska stoppa honom. Det som skiljer den från de västerländska filmerna är att det är lite mer drama, och lite mer djup när det gäller gott och ont.

    If You like Korean action movies, this is worth watching. Quite good music compositions in some scenes and some fighting scenes are like from modern FPS games.

    It is not a film I would recomend to anyone. I gave it just 2 stars for effert; there being some "good" editing in parts. There was some money spent on this, just not in the right places. There is nothing more to add.
