If you've been missing the goofy earnestness of '80s action movies, then we've got good news-they haven't gone away, they simply changed location.

Wins the match, but only on points.

Writer-director Kim Yong-wan delivers a palatable product, with leftover ingredients.

May 16, 2018 | Full Review…

First-time director Kim Yong-wan lays the melodrama on thick, and his cliched script never threatens to surprise.

Jul 24, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Like all the best Rocky movies, you'll get a lump in your throat from watching a good person triumph rather than fail.

A superb job at tugging heartstrings.
