Retired right-hand man from the syndicate, Yoon de Heun, has decided that he wants to open a restaurant.  He enrolls in cooking classes where he meets the young and mysterious, Se-bin.  It isn’t long before he finds himself being pulled back into the crime boss life when his former boss is murdered.  As he tries to keep away from that life, he finds out that there is more to Se-bin than meets the eye and he may have to go back to his old life to save hers.

This is an entertaining story with great action sequences.  It’s not too hard to figure out who is double-crossing whom, but it is still a fun ride to get there.  There are some wonderful stunts that will take your breath away.

It’s a good action/romance movie.  The characters are enjoyable and the writing is fresh and fun.  The ending is fabulous!

My only complaint is that it does not have a dubbed soundtrack.  It is all in English subtitles and you have a choice of Korean dialect or Korean dialect.  

A good action movie for those looking for an entertaining foreign film.  I really enjoyed this one and the interviews and featurettes are just as enjoyable as the film itself.  Very nicely done.

That’s my review and I’m sticking to it!
