THE MERCILESS (K-Movie 2017)

Jae-ho (Sol Kyung-gu), who aims to become the number one in a crime organization, gets to build-Vup trust with Hyun-su (Im Si-wan), an ambitious newbie in the prison. While they try to take over the organization after the prison release, their ulterior motives start to emerge.

This movie is all about the violent underworld of gangsters, moles, and cops where the plot evolves in friendship and betrayal between a prisoner leader and a new inmate.

The two leads team up to take over a gang when they will be out of the prison. As the story progress to the reality of their goal, unspoken tensions became burning and you will never sure who’s got the upper hand at the end.

With the great charisma of the two leads, I wasn’t able to feel the stomach-churning scenarios, maybe I was used to it when it comes to Korea action movie. The cinematography is stunning and the action sequences impressively were done.  The essence of the plot is collective, but the great deal is, it was well presented and executed.
