Helmer Lee Jeong-beom shows a flair for action sequences, squeezing tension out of every fight scene choregraphed by Park Jung-ryul.

South Korea may just be the most exciting place on the planet these days when it comes to stylish and violent thrillers.

Audience Reviews for The Man From Nowhere
- Tae-shik: People like you live only for tomorrow. People like you get fucked up by the people living for today. I live for today.
- Tae-shik: I'm her next door neighbor...
- So-mi: Mister? I embarrass you too, right? That's why you ignored me? It's okay. My teacher and all the kids do that too. Mom said that if I get lost, I should forget our address and phone number. She gets drunk and says we should die. Even though that pig called me a bum... you're meaner. But I don't hate you. Because if I do, I won't have anyone I like. Thinking about it hurts me here. So I won't hate you.
