Storyline

After his father's botched espionage mission, North Korean Myung-hoon and his young sister Hye-in are sent to a labor prison camp. In order to save his sister's life, Myung-hoon "volunteers" to become a spy and infiltrates the South as a teenage defector. While attending high school in the South (his cover), he meets another girl named Hye-in and rescues her when she comes under attack by school bullies. South Korean Intelligence soon discovers Myung-hoon's activities and begins tracking him, all the while as his own government sends a vicious assassin to eliminate him.

Crossing the line
14 June 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

While this movie has not as much impact as other Korean action movies, this still has quite a lot of punches in it. The movie itself stars with one big punch that hangs over the movie the whole time. It's about suppression and blackmail and it is about the late North Korean dictator too. But some of it is just facade.

There are motives to some of the characters that come off as clichés and you'd be excused if you didn't like this because of that. But look beyond that and you'll see a more than decent action movies. The action stunts are really good. The main character could have a bit more flavor though and some story strains get left behind to get to the whole picture. Good, but not great then
