Unstoppable (Seongnan hwangso)

Part of the World Perspectives Strand


This tightly paced South Korean action film (which has been favourably compared to Taken) features a larger-then-life performance by the charismatic Ma Dong-seok (billed here as Don Lee) as Dong-chul, a hard-working family man whose wife is kidnapped by sex traffickers. Bad move by them. He was not nicknamed ‘Angry Bull’ as a teenager for no reason and, with the aid of his best pal and a bumbling private detective, nothing will stop him. The action is brilliant, but Unstoppable also has great comedy moments and wonderfully loopy villain. [15]
