Born To Kill

YesAsia Editorial Description

Jung Woo Sung was Born To Kill! In Jang Hyun Soo's gripping thriller, the star of Musa The Warrior and A Moment to Remember portrays the orphan Kil, who is gradually pushed into a career as a killer after his single-parent mother decides to commit suicide. Working as an assassin for a deadly underworld syndicate, Kil seems destined to spend the rest of his life as a killer for hire. The only person who is able to offer him some kind of comfort is bar waitress Soo Ha (Shim Eun Ha, Christmas in August) whom he encounters by change. One fateful day Soo Ha collapses on the street and is discovered by Kil. He sees no other alternative but to take her back to his home - a decision that leads to drastic changes for both of them.

고독한 킬러와 호스티스의 슬픈 사랑...

폭우와 사람들로 붐비는 도심 한 복판, 일개 조직의 보스의 눈알이 아스팔트위에 떨어져 구른다. 그 상황을 만든 장본인은 바로 주인공인 킬러 길...

원숭이와 함께 살고있는 전문 킬러 길은 받은 돈은 모두 냉장고에 넣어둔채 세상과 차단된 생활을 한다. 조직의 우두머리 염사장의 명령에 따라 살인을 대행할 뿐 길에게 의미 있는사람은 건너편 아파트에 사는 수하 뿐이다.

가수지망생 호스티스 수하. 술에 취한 그녀를 바래다주면서 둘의 관계는 시작된다.하지만 가수의 꿈을 포기할 수 없었던 수하는 결국 길의 돈을 가지고 어디론가 사라져 버린다. 또 다시 무료하고 의미없는 일상으로 돌아온 길은 수하의 행방을 찾아 방황하기 시작한다.

초라한 모습으로 다시 길을 찾아온 수하, 그녀로 인해 한없는 행복을 느끼는 길. 수하는 순수한 영혼의 소유자인 길에게 마음의 문을 열기 시작하고, 길 역시 수하를통해 자신이 인간으로서 살아있음을 확인하기 시작하면서 킬러로써의 생활에 점차 회의를 느끼게 된다.

길의 갈등을 눈치 챈 염사장은 수하를 미끼로 길에게 두목을 제거하라는 마지막 킬러 임무를 명령을 내리는데...

Shame on Winson! Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
"Born To Kill" appears to have been inspired by Kazuo Koike's famous Crying Freeman saga. Jung Woo Sung plays Gill, a man trapped by fate into being a master assassin for a thoroughly evil mid-level mob boss. Detesting his life, Gill lives alone and shuts himself off from the world. One day Gill stumbles upon drunken bar hostess Soo Ha (Shim Eun Ha), whom Gill picks up off the street. Willful Soo Ha becomes a demanding whirlwind that shatters Gill's oddly static existence. When one of Gill's assassination targets offers him a revelation into his hidden past, Gill is unable to complete the hit. Soon Gill finds himself at odds with his employer and all heck is about to break loose.

The film is uneven, and uneven in ways that are unexpected. The relationship between Gill and Soo Ha is believable and, ultimately, quite affecting. The Soo Ha character is not particularly likeable for much of the film and Shim Eun Ha is not afraid to play up her character's faults. The action, which I would have expected to be handled well sometimes goes way over the top, particularly in the movie's climactic brawl, and the cinematographic tricks employed in some of the fight scenes are a silly distraction.

Those of us who view this film on the DVD issued by Winson Entertainment are at a considerable disadvantage. The image quality of the Winson DVD is beyond murky. In some darkly lit scenes it becomes impossible to discern facial expressions and sometimes nearly impossible to discern action. Moreover, the Winson DVD's English subtitles are of poor quality. Shame on Winson for seeking to profit from such shoddy work.
