    Korean hostage thriller that tries to mimic the big budget blockbusters from Hollywood like Speed, Die Hard and Under Siege. It's a pretty fair attempt and provides enough excitement and action during its near two hour duration, but it treads old ground and doesn't come up with any new ideas or surprises. A worthwhile watch though if you like action thrillers.

    Baek Woon-hak delivers <i>Tube</i>, which is Korea's answer to <i>Under Siege 2: Dark Territory</i>. This is not a remake. It is just similar in concept. Funny thing is the tag line for this film is: Under Siege. Underground.</p><p>Anyway, the plot for this story is a decent one, but there is room for more. Most of the movie takes place on a subway train as well as it should and the 1 hour 50 minute film will not necessarily fly by. It will not take forever though. After a pretty good shootout in the beginning there is a bunch of character buildup for the hero, Jay, and the second hero, Kay. This buildup works wonders for the ending. There is also some good background for the head villain. The rest of the villains are forgettable. This is a shame since there are very few of them, so there is room for emphasis on these characters as well.</p><p>There is a decent amount of action with some great suspense. The hero and the villain even bang heads more than once. The fire fights are nicely done and the brawls aren't too bad either.</p><p>Seok-hun Kim pulls off a decent hero in Jay and he will remind many people of Chow Yun Fat. Don't believe me? Watch this and you will see. Bae Doo-na, of <i>The Host</i> fame, is a great supporting character. Sang-min Park is an OK villain and the rest of the supporting cast is more than mediocre.</p><p><i>Tube</i> isn't anything original, but that doesn't make it any less of a great thrill ride. This is for fans of Korean action thrillers.

    Sounds like a rip off of "Speed", but actually is better.

    Cool Asian action film in the city's subway and Seok-Hoon Kim is a great action hero as well as the new South Korean Chow Yun-Fat.
