Not just a pawn (broker)
Bin Won, seen in Mother, gives another great performance. Cha Tae-sik is known to his neighbors as the local pawn broker, but who is he really? When his young neighbor is kidnapped, Cha Tae-sik shows everyone he's way more than just a pawn broker. But the real show stealer is Sae-ron Kim an 11 year old actress who puts many adult thespians to shame. A great action movie, with great acting and solid fight sequences, especially the knife fight near the end.
Slightly melodramatic at points, but The Man from Nowhere one knocks down 4 out of 5 Poblanos!
Director: Jeong-beom Lee
