KIMCHI FLAVOR: THE OUTLAW [MOO BEON JA a.k.a. 무법자]

UPDATE: READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE! – – – – – – Maybe Korea can still produce serious thriller fare: THE OUTLAW by director Kim Cheol-Han tells the story of a detective who’s trying to hunt down a serial killer and is forced to operate outside the law to catch him. That doesn’t sound too original, but THE OUTLAW might be a genre film worth watching after so many disappointments in recent years.

Since the worldwide popularity of Korean cinema producers have started to commercialize each and every niche and the industry has unfortunately come to a state of irrelevancy, just on a very high level. The times of the raw and edgy Korean movies seems over.  THE OUTLAW may not be that great after all, but hopes are high that it turns out to be a bit more sincere than many other flicks of this type. Starring Kam Woo-Seong, Jang Shin-Yeong, Lee Seung-Min, Choi Won-Young, Yun Ji-Min and Tak Teu-In. Check it out in Korean cinemas now.
