On the day of the U.S. presidential election in 2024, Ahab (HA) and his team of elite mercenaries embark on a secret CIA mission to abduct North Korea's Armed Forces Minister in an underground bunker below the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). However, they get caught in the crossfire which causes tensions to escalate to the brink of World War III.
It's election day in the US in 2024, and the President is going to lose because of Korean policy missteps.CIA agent Jennifer Ehle has a plan to have Jung-Woo Ha disrupt peace talks between North and South Korea. This will give the President an excuse to destroy North Korea's nuclear arsenal and take over the nation, boosting his popularity. Then, however, the leader of North Korea is seen, and the mission evolves rapidly, again and again in an atmosphere of paranoia and realpolitik.
There's a real neo-noir edge to the movie. All the mercenaries are tired and want to go home, but they need one last score. The authorities are beyond corrupt; the plans break so rapidly in the face of events that there's no time to modify them, only react, and there are three directors of photography, each covering a different front with a moving camera, fit to drive the audience up the wall. Every time I thought the story was about to move ahead, something else would happen to reset my expectations of utter disaster. If you're looking for a dark thriller, this one certainly fits the bill.
