Storyline

Professional baduk player Tae-seok loses a high-stakes game to infamous underground gambler Sal-soo, and ends up framed for the murder of his own brother and locked up in prison. He vows revenge and trains ferociously. After serving his seven-year sentence, he gets in touch with his brother's former associate "Tricks," hermit and blind master player "The Lord," and skillful junkyard owner Mok-su; together, they begin formulating a plan to get back at Sal-soo and his men. Tae-seok slowly penetrates Sal-soo's inner circle and his gambling joint, and eliminates Sal-soo's men one by one. But Sal-soo discovers Tae-seok's true identity and engages him in one final game that will seal the fates of the two men involved. Written by Owais Sunasara

Okay I guess
21 February 2018 | by EiriksterminatorSee all my reviews

This movie is marketed as an action movie, but it really isn't one. It only has a couple of fight scenes, and only the final one actually lasts a while (the fights are all well coreographed though, and the final fight is awesome). It is a revenge-thriller first and foremost, but the larger part of the movie actually focuses on the board game "Go", so the movie is actually pretty slow, which got kind of boring to me. The plot itself is okay enough. Standard revenge-thriller fare. The music and the acting were both good.
