The tattoo on the left shoulders of Gon and Chaoz is the emblem for the legendary Vietnam War unit MAC-V SOG. Although they were disbanded in 1972, the movie may be implying the backstory between them as being former U.S. Special Ops. And the tattoos were a continuity error. See more »

Awesome shot gun sequences. Brutal hand to hand combat. What else an action fan wants
Saw this recently on a rented DVD. What an amazing action flick man. The plot - After accidentally killing a young girl during a hit, the hit-man is traumatized by the event. Soon, he is assigned by his contractors to then eliminate the young girl's mother, causing further conflict for the damaged hit-man. Expectations were high as this is from the same director, Lee Jeong-beom who gav us The Man from Nowhere. Jang Dong-gun (My Way) gav a stunning performance as the haunted and complex hit-man. His action choreography was awesome. The films many violent action scenes are quite well executed. In short, this is a very stylish, emotional, high octane action flick. The action sticks to blazing shootouts, some slick close-quarter-combat - brutal n engaging, and some knife play. Most of the action is towards the second half of the film. The rooftop shoot-out is one of the best action sequence. The gunshots scenes, especially the shot gun scenes were violent n blazing. (Myself a fan of shot gun action sequences). Fans of Michael Mann n John Woo will love the gun action scenes. Fans of Heat, Miami vice (final shoot-out), The getaway (Steve Mcqueen one), Hard boiled, The killer, Tombstone, etc will definitely enjoy this.
