Superstar actor and director Jung Woo-sung will be in attendance for a special post-screening Q&A after the NOV 11 screening.
It’s hard to be a Man of Reason with a target on your back. Soo-hyuk wants out of the criminal world after serving 10 years for wiping out his old boss and a clutch of gang soldiers. Although this made room for his former criminal-in-arms to move up to “chairman” of the new corporate organized gang, the new boss remains wary of Soo-hyuk. An overly ambitious underboss figures taking out Soo-hyuk is his ticket to the top floor and hires a decidedly off-beat hit team who prefer explosives and arson along with a tricked out nail gun. When they kidnap Soo-hyuk’s newly discovered daughter it unleashes his “very particular set of skills” spelling vengeance for all.
The directorial debut of superstar Jung Woo-sung, in A MAN OF REASON Jung unleashes his own John Woo skills with elaborately and explosively choreographed fight and chase scenes. Offering a stoic performance as Soo-hyuk, Jung brings together an all-star cast, crafting a classic action revenge film with flair, finesse, and a touch of comic relief for good measure.
