The Target (2014) - Remake of French movie 'Point Blank'

Recommended Posts

At the end of April action movie 'The Target' will be hitting the big screen on its native soil of Korea. A re-make of the 2010 French movie 'Point Blank' and directed by Yoon Hong-seung, who hasn't made a full length feature since his popular debut with the 2008 horror 'Death Bell', it stars Ryoo Seung-ryong in one of his rare leading man roles an ex-assassin who is framed for the murder of a renowned corporate leader. What entails is a 36 hour pursuit, and from the looks of the trailer below it looks to include some quality action -

Didn't see a topic about this, so I decided to create one

 

As I understand, it's a Korean remake of French movie Point Blank(2010)

I haven't seen the original movie, but I found the remake to be quite good. Good pacing, decent acting for the most part (I really enjoyed a policewoman character, good performance by  Seong-ryeong Kim), some decent action. You get a few fights, a car chase, some shooting. Nothing extraordinary, but quite solid.

Overall, I'd say it's one of the better Korean thrillers out there. So, if you haven't seen it, check it out
