 Caught a free showing of this Korean action flick last night. While I'm not the world's biggest action movie guy this was OK and being free always makes things a little better. This is about a spy from North Korea who defects to the south and gets accused of murdering a politician. From there it's a bunch of standard chases, fights and gun-play and double crosses. This has a pretty big cast of characters from different groups with competing interests with a kinda complex plot that left me a little confused at first but everything wraps itself up pretty logically by the end. The one complaint I have with this and pretty much every modern action film is that the fight scenes are shot and cut in such a way that you can't really tell what the fuck is going on during most of them. Also, as is typical of most current Korean films, it's a little long at over 2 hours but is probably worthwhile for fans of movies where a lot of stuff happens at a quick pace.
 There are a lot of comparisons with this movie and those Bourne films but since I generally detest new films I haven't seen any of those.
