Three old friends and rivals from high school days who get their invitation to the big fight for the chance to win $200,000 and much more. 25 years later - Deok-kyu, whose Olympic dreams were dashed, now runs a struggling noodle shop. Jae-seok who always wanted to be number one but still finds himself in a third-rate gang. And Sang-hoon, a thug turned corporate executive who must go back and find his bloodlust one last time.

Pretty badass
30 August 2015 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

Now the reason I wanted to check this movie out is because I like movies that has mixed martial arts in it. Plus it has Hwang Jung-min who is an actor that really grows on you. However unlike a lot of martial arts movies, this one is focused way more on the story than the actual fights. So the plot of this movie is about middle aged guys who are fighters and delinquents that gets a second chance to relive their dreams over a fighting tournament. I did like the build up of this movie but for a film that is around 2 hours and 30 minutes long, I think it could have been cut a bit shorter. Cause some parts just didn't seem all that necessary and some parts just seem to drag. However what really made a lasting impact was when the main protagonist gets caught in a dilemma. I just wish the fight sequences was a bit better. Cause it was kind of boring to watch. The first two fight sequences was cool in the intro, but after that it wasn't that good.

7.8/10
