Hwanghae

Na Hong-jin South Korea, 2010

Richard!'s rating of the film The Yellow Sea

The first part of the movie plays as an incredibly well-done dark thriller about a poor chinese man in debt to gangsters, who is smuggled into Korea to kill a wealthy man, while at the same time trying to locate his wife. This is unfortunately ruined by the later part in the movie when it switches to preposterous action, that might have been entertaining if it didn't ruin everything that was built up until that point
