City of Violence, The


South Korea 2006, 92 minutes
Dir. Ryoo Seung-Wan
In Korean with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Gangsters, Martial Arts


Aroview: A dazzling, action-fantastic revenger by way of Korea, this draws its considerable bloodletting from the aftermath of a funeral, where two childhood friends seek vengeance for their murdered comrade.

A little formulaic but boasting two particularly killer martial arts scenes, and an epic finale, dir. Ryoo Seung-wan brings his noted boxing prowess into this brutal tale. As you’d expect, sleazy villains, short tempers and wacky melodramatic montages enhance the adrenaline kick of the proceedings.
