He spends the next five days seeking vengeance on his captor and this is when the fighting begins. This highly rated movie is dark, violent and action-packed.
  2. "A Dirty Carnival" This Korean fighting movie is not your ordinary mob story.

"A Dirty Carnival" is dark, emotional and realistic. The fighting scenes are quite brutal and bloody, but the movie is very interesting.
  3. "JSA – Joint Security Area" A complex friendship exists between soldiers stationed at the border between North and South Korea, known as the Joint Security Area. The friendship is illegal as the pairs of soldiers are on opposite sides divided by political and physical boundaries. One night something tragic happens; the soldiers end up fighting each other, but their may be more than meets the eye. The two North Korean soldiers are left dead and the South Korean soldiers are in shock and suicidal. Although "JSA" is sad, it is realistic and reminds us all of the possibility of brotherhood with those we consider enemies.
  4. "The Brotherhood of War" When it comes to Korean fighting movies, "The Brotherhood of War" is a smash hit. This epic movie of the Korean War is emotional and dramatic as two brothers forced into war struggle to survive and protect each other.
  5. "Friend" This movie deals with loyalty and betrayal among four friends who grow up to lead different lives. Two make an honest living working and the other two become gangsters.
