HKFanatic's rating of the film The Man from Nowhere

This is one of my favorite films of all time and probably the best blind buy I have ever made. I bought the blu-ray off the strength of a little online word of mouth, figuring that it was a gritty Korean revenge movie so it had to be good. Little did I know. This is a just an immaculately crafted thriller with amazing performances, crisp cinematography, and fight choreography that hurts. 5 stars.
