p★★★★ a class='liennormal' href=Title: "Days of Wrath"

Genre: Action, Thriller

Length: 103 min

Release Date: 2013/10/31

Director: Shin Jai-ho ("Wedding Scandal", "100 Days with Mr. Arrogant")

Stars: Yang Dong-geun, Joo Sang-wook, Lee Tae-im

The Short and Sweet: The victim and bully from school reunite after 15 years with Yang Dong-geun as they bully and Joo Sang-wook as the victim.

Actors Yang Dong-geun ("Perfect Game", "Grand Prix") and Joo Sand-wook ("90 Minutes", "The Scent") square off this week in Shin Jai-ho's fourth feature "Days of Wrath" (aka "The Punisher"). Sin's previous work revolved around romantic ("Wedding Scandal", "100 Days with Mr. Arrogant") comedies and the action sci-fi adventure film "Super Monkey Returns"; but his new film deviates heavily with its dark imagining of an unsettling reunion of Joon-seok (Joo Sang-wook) and his school bully from fifteen years ago. Action thrillers have become a mainstay of Korea cinema; it's a polished genre and style that Korean cinema frequently returns. Sin's new flick looks to join the bandwagon here with a twist that looks not too dissimilar from Park Chan-wook's "Old Boy". "Days of Wrath" looks intriguing and it will be exciting to see if Yang and Joo strike are able to invoke the sort of tension and thrills fans of the genre have come to expect.

★★★★
