film synopsis

Korea, the 1920s: the country is under Japanese military occupation; the resistance has been forced underground, and may soon be eliminated. Korean police captain Lee Jung-chool (Song Kang-ho, Snowpiercer; The Host) is enough of a pragmatist to throw in his lot with the occupiers, but when he's tasked with tracking down the guerilla leaders neither side can be sure where his allegiances lie-and nor is he. What ensues is a complicated game of cat and mouse, only the cat could be rat, and the mouse might be a mole...

If the screenplay (loosely based on historical events) evokes John le Carré, director Kim Jee-woon, who may be familiar to audiences for his Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle The Last Stand, and/or gonzo favorites like The Good, the Bad, the Weird, takes his cue to channel Brian de Palma in a succession of virtuoso action set pieces, engineered with the kind of clinical composure we rarely see these days.

"An electrifying double agent drama... This rousing gem has everything one wants for an evening's entertainment." Jay Weissberg, Variety
