Film Review : No Mercy (2010)

Netflix Watch Instant

IMDB Score – 7.1

This film from Korea follows it’s contemporaries pretty closely. South Korea is known for pushing the envelope with its crime thrillers and this is no exception. The story revolves around a forensic scientist who must tamper with evidence to get a suspected murder out of jail. The reason for this is because the murder has kidnapped his daughter and if he’s not released in three days, she dies. The story was pretty bland for most of the way through and had some pretty annoying characters but the ending made up for it all as we are treated to a truly screwed up climax to cap off the whole story. I’ve seen more disturbing endings in Korean cinema but not many exist in the states. This is why I love foreign cinema. You can get away with so much more and people will love you for it.

3/5
