Johnnie To’s gritty crime epic Drug War (37th HKIFF) is given a chic and adrenaline-charged South Korean renovation. Obsessed with hunting down a mysterious drug kingpin known as Mr. Lee, a hard-bitten cop goes undercover into the labyrinthine underground cartel, and is caught in a series of conspiracy and deceptions. Lined up with colorful characters illuminated by an all-star cast (including Kim Joo-hyuk in his final role as the vicious drug boss), this entertaining actionthriller rightfully claimed the Korean box office No.1 so far this year.
