The story here is about a police officer who is uncovering a case dealing with a young girl that is kidnapped, also the mother of the girl goes missing she's later found deceased they're trying to find out what is going on. There is not a sex ring but a body organ transplant sort of thing I've seen quite a number of these in the last few years there was one with Dolph Lundgren(Skin Trade) and then there was another one a couple of years ago with Tony Jaa(Paradox)and those were good films. This film branches off and kind of gets into a secondary story he had killed this really brutal guys brother without him knowing of the connection so this, in turn, leads us to the story we're dealing with now, this intense individual is played so well by Lee Jung Jae who was in "Along With The Gods", he plays a villain of by the name of 'The Butcher' deservedly so this guy is ruthless about as ruthless as a henchman can be, I don't know the last time I saw somebody so vicious, with that knowing how vicious he and his gang are the government agent turn mercenary played by Huang Jung Min he was in "The Wailing" so he knows that he has to meet the brutality with the same sort of brutality. I will just say somebody doesn't have as many fingers as they once did when he was trying to gather some information from a known source that knew where 'The Butcher' was and where the girl was, so he had no alternative but to resort to extreme violence.

I was sent the Blu-ray from Well go USA through Taro PR, the Behind The Scenes making of this film are fascinating how they did a lot of the shots.

They apparently did the fight scenes frame by frame so when it played back the fight scenes were pretty intense to do that but it really pays off because I thought for sure they were making full-body contact and in a way they were but without anybody getting hurt not like in the UFC.

This is definitely not everybody's cup of tea, just the storyline alone probably turns a lot of people off.

This is a Korean film with English subtitles. If this is your kind of film I don't think you'll be disappointed and the action scenes, there's a chase near the very end of it blew my mind we'll just say it to it's between a car, a windshield, and a man and we'll leave it at that you'll have to see the film to know exactly what happened.
