Movie Info

In 2029, after the governments of North and South Korea announce a 5-year plan to reunify the country, strong sanctions by the world's powerful nations cripple the economy and lead to a hellish period of chaos. With the appearance of an armed anti-government terrorist group called The Sect which opposes reunification, the President creates a new police division called the Special Unit which amasses significant political power. However the intelligence service Public Security, which sees its own influence drop, hatches a plot to annihilate the Special Unit. Amidst this bloody struggle between two ultra-powerful institutions, rumors emerge of a secret "Wolf Brigade" being formed within the Special Unit.

Critic Reviews for Illang: The Wolf Brigade

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Action comes easy to Korean director Kim; it's actors that he doesn't always know what to do with.

Top Critic

The action sequences are mostly terrific: impactful, surprising and brilliantly choreographed...It's undergirded by a decent mystery-thriller storyline and two very appealing leads.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

There are some thrilling action sequences in this film, but they are buried under a convoluted conspiracy that amounts to nothing and wooden characters you won't care for.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

A movie that's 30 minutes shorter with half the characters would have made for a fun action drama.

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Too long (139 minutes), too repetitive and too conventional in its love plot, the proposal does not go beyond being a somewhat confusing show... and rather dramatically flat. [Full review in Spanish]

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

A film which is both over-plotted and melodramatic.
