5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Taken, you'll love this movie January 10, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
WATCH THIS MOVIE!
Won't ruin it for you, but the basic premise is that someone gets kidnapped and this bad a@@ guy saves her. AWESOME! But not for little kids to watch as there is ALOT of violence and a lot of profanity. Action, Action, Action!
One of the best Korean movies that I have EVER SEEN. Won Bin is great in this movie and I have found a new found respect for the guy.
The theme song for the movie is by a Korean band called Mad Soul Child and it's called Dream...awesome song as well.

Riveting, pulse-pounding action and drama. "The Man From Nowhere" is simply magnificent!

The winner of seven Korea Film Awards (the most awards ever received for a film in Korea) and multiple awards worldwide, the 2010 film "The Man From Nowhere" will be released on Blu-ray and DVD in the US on March 8th!

"The Man From Nowhere" was written and directed by Jeong-beom Lee ("Cruel Winter Blues") and stars popular Korean actor Won Bin ("Guns & Talks", "Mother", "Taegukgi", "My Brother").

VIDEO:

"The Man From Nowhere" is presented in 1080p High Definition and is presented in 16:9 widescreen. The picture quality of this film is absolutely wonderful as grime, blood and scars can be seen with detail on the characters. You can see the detail of the suit and clothing of various people, including the buttons on their clothing.

It's important to note that this is a bloody film known for its spectacular knife fight and its violence but by no means is it sadistic in a horror-film type of way.

While a film that does showcase a lot of black and does take place during the nighttime, during the day-time scenes or neon-light club scenes, you do see the vibrant colors. As for the action sequences, no blurring or any interlacing. I saw no compression artifacting, DNR or any significant visual problems. A pretty solid release PQ-wise from Well Go USA.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"The Man From Nowhere" is presented in Korean and English 5.1 DTS-HD Surround Sound. While there is an English dub version of the film, I do not listen to English dubs for live action Asian films and prefer to watch the film in its original language, Korean dialogue with English subtitles.

Random acts of kindness make a `good action picture' into a `great action picture' with THE MAN FROM NOWHERE

South Korea's mega-popular THE MAN FROM NOWHERE was successful for very good reasons, so many that there's no way I could touch upon all of them in a single review. Suffice it to say that it's an action picture whose formula is broad enough to appeal to men (once the action starts, there's never a dull moment), women (there's a strong through-line about caring for society's lost children), male teens (who wouldn't want to be as coolly quiet as the film's lead), and female `tweens' (I've been assured by ladies that star Bin Won is very `easy on the eyes'). If that winning combination isn't enough, then add to the mix the social messages and perhaps a metaphor on "random acts of kindness" and it's no wonder that the film was a huge hit overseas.

Bin Won stars as Tae-sik Cha, who, quite literally, is the film's "man from nowhere." As our story opens, he's seen doing his best to blend into the landscape, buying some sausage to eat in his small apartment. He's treated like anyone on the street who has his slightly disheveled appearance: mostly ignored but slightly suspect due to his unkempt guise. Arriving back home where he runs a pawnshop shop out of his apartment in a quiet, rundown tenement building (the place looks much like he does), he meets the young So-mi hiding in the darkness at the bottom of the stairs. We soon learn that they're begrudging friends (of sorts), with Cha not taking any responsibility for the young girl (whose mother has essentially abandoned her to a life on the streets) but feeling tied to her more as the only responsible adult in her life.

But So-mi's mother is guilty of more than being a bad mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie February 11, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie is a cross between leon the professional and taken, so if you like either of those you will love this movie. The details are limited on this release which is why I'm going to wait on pre-ordering it. It says language: English, do they mean its english dubs or contains english subtitles with the original korean audio.

::EDIT::
Got the Blu-ray in the mail today and just finished watching it. It has audio in Korean and English dub and also has English subtitles. It comes also in a slip case with some embossing of the shattered glass in the picture and the movie title.

I did notice there were a few minor misspellings in the English subtitles but overall they seemed good to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Won Bin - Need I say More! June 13, 2011
By K.Louis
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Highly recommend! Great acting between Won Bin & Kim Sae Ron. Good stunt performance by Won Bin who insisted on doing his own stunts. Kim Sae Ron just melted the hearts with her performance which was heart breaking to see. Talented for such a young age. As for Won Bin - Need I say More! WOW!
