Swiri was the first Hollywood-style big-budget blockbuster to be produced in the "new" Korean film industry. This was due to South Korea's major economic boom that occurred in late 90's. See more »
For the hijack of the CTX, the hijackers are waiting for the truck as it emerges from a tunnel. This tunnel is there in shots from the ground, but the shots from the helicopter before it lands were clearly filmed elsewhere, as there is no tunnel in sight behind the hijacked truck. See more »
One scene was removed by the director from the 2 disc Korean special edition DVD: whilst running away with Hee, Park murders a Police Officer by spike through the heart. This cut was made because the murder did not make any sense during the scene before and immediately after. It is included in the deleted scenes section on the second disc. See more »
When I first saw that movie I didn't know anything about the korean movie industry and I was in for a big surprise! "Wow, they can make big budget action movies in other countries besides the US!" Was one of the first thoughts that came to my mind. The beginning with training the north korean spies was very "fascinating" to watch. I have seldomly seen such gory scenes that left the impression of "hell, they are mean" despite the usual: "cool, that blood spilling is really funny". I admit that I only understand very little korean and I saw that one without subtitles and the whole story was translated to me while watching. Still I thought it was a superb action movie with great actors. I can only recommend it to anyone who would like to see a non comic and also Asian action film for a change. It's really worth it!
