This is a stylish depiction of a plot to destabilise the Japanese occupation of the Korean peninsula in the early 1920s. The resistance fighters are determined to smuggle explosives into Seoul to destroy key facilities; to kill leading individuals in the oppressor's administration whilst avoiding the Japanese Imperial police who are hot on their trail - and who may well have a spy amongst their number too. I found it a bit too dialogue heavy and you certainly can't doubt the perspective of the good v evil narrative taken by director Jee-woon Kim exemplified by the occupying forces use of some pretty eye-watering brutality on their captives. Kang-ho Song. Yoo Gong and Byung-hun Lee - and the train on which they are travelling - work well in perpetuating the suspense and jeopardy - right until the end. The attention to detail is classy, creative cinematography lending much to the overall look and feel of this tautly paced effort and as cat and mouse adventures go, it is certainly a good one.
