No Mercy for the Rude

Brutal violence blends with post-modern comedy and absurd set-pieces in this hip Korean flick about a man with a severe speech impediment who refuses to speak until he has saved up enough money for an expensive operation. The aptly-named Killa decides to work as a hitman to raise the necessary funds, but will only take out obnoxious targets. Already slated for an American remake this pulsating black-humoured thriller stars the excellent Ha-kyun Shin who worked with director Chan-wook Park in 'Sympathy for Mr Vengeance', in which he also played a mute.
