Synopsis


The Man from Nowhere
A retired special agent forges an unlikely bond with his neglected young neighbor, and vows to bring the girl back home safely after she's kidnapped by violent criminals. When Tae-Shik hung up his guns to open a small pawn shop, he also shut himself off from the world. Tae-Shik prefers to live in solitude, yet he still takes a liking to his precocious neighbor So-mi, whose mother pay her little attention. When So-Mi's mother crosses a local gang of criminals who respond by kidnapping the desperate mother and daughter, Tae-Shik realizes that he may be their only hope of making it out of the situation alive. After entering into a tenuous agreement with the local mob, Tae-Shik becomes the target of an intense police manhunt and finds himself besieged on all sides. Now the closer Tae-Shik gets to So-Mi and her mother, the more his dark past finally begins coming into focus. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A very good movie with a very big problem

    This Korean movie mines from the same vein as films like "Taken," "Man on Fire" and others. Here a man who has withdrawn from his violent world and life in general comes back to save a little girl. The hero gives a good performance although he seems a little young to have given up on life. The villains are completely despicable. And the little girl, who is treated cruelly by nearly everyone in her world but still soldiers on with a good heart, is brought to life by a truly remarkable little actress. Unfortunately, there seem to have been major flaws in the dvd production. I bought five discs. None of them played without some freezing or stopping incident. I finally kept one which played everything but one chapter. That shows how much I liked the movie and how widespread the problem with the dvd is. (Can't speak to the Blu-Ray.) So this is very much a buyer be warned recommendation.

    I heard a lot about this movie as it tends to be a bit of a cultural reference in Korea, and I had to look it up in Wikipedia for the American title since it is known as "Ajussi" in Korea.

    This is a great movie. Wasn't expecting much, but the action scenes are done very well. The plot could have been better and Korean writers seem to not know how to end a movie very well.

    Very good action thriller! Dark themes but great performances, especially the little girl, and don't be afraid of the subtitles !
