Editorial Review

Korea's top box-office draw for 2010, the stylish and violent crime drama The Man from Nowhere is a high-octane adrenaline rush for fans of Asian action cinema. South Korean superstar Won Bin (Mother) made his comeback after military service as “Ajeossi” (or “Mister,” the film's original title), a pawnbroker in Seoul's vice district who allows only young So-mi (Kim Sae-ron) into his reclusive life. When her mother (Kim Hyo-seo), an exotic dancer saddled with a habit, steals a package of heroin belonging to second-tier gangster Oh (Song Yeong-cheong), the thug retaliates by abducting her and her daughter, sending Ajeossi on a blood-soaked search for the girl. As the pawnbroker racks up an astonishing body count, the facts about his past come to light, which send both the police and the mob on his trail. Director Lee Jeong-beom pitches his film at the same breakneck pace as Ajeossi, pausing only briefly to allow audiences to catch their breath between feverish fight scenes; as an action star, Won Bin displays both impressive athletics and a magnetic screen presence. The violence hews towards the extreme, as does one particularly unsavory aspect about the gangsters' drug trade, so Nowhere is best suited for mature audiences. The DVD includes a making-of featurette and trailers. –Paul Gaita
