Synopsis - IMDB
Photos - MovieXclusive

Myung-sin, who has become a pirate, lives with hatred in his heart and endures the hardships, seeks revenge on the two nations, North and South Korea, using nuclear waste that has the devastating power of plutonium. Se-jong, a South Korean naval officer departs with his team of elite forces to prevent Sin's master plan of Nuclear Typhoon. Born under the same skies of the same race, but of a completely different nation... Living a life so different, the two point their guns at each other's heart...

I really liked the movie! It was a breath of fresh air for me. I haven't seen a Korean movie in a while and this one did it for me. I love how both leads live different lives but were able to understand each other's pain through experience and finding the truth.

The climax scene seemed like it was taken from a Hollywood movie! Many shots were unrealistic but beautifully shot!

Many people will say that the storyline is nothing new but it doesn't matter, as long as it's a well-made movie, then it's good to go!

Definitely worth a watch. I really really am starting to like Jang Dong Gun. I've seen him in other films but dang! He's getting better and better!
