왕년엔 복싱스타. 지금은 매맞는 남자. 이제 더 이상 물러설 곳이 없다!!

한때 아시안 게임 은메달리스트로 잘 나가던 태식, 현재 그는 길거리 한복판에서 돈을 받고 사람들에게 매맞아 주는 일을 한다. 도박으로 진 빚과 공장의 화재로 인해, 가진 것을 모두 날린 후, 생계를 위해 어쩔 수 없이 거리의 매맞는 복서로 나서게 된 것. 그에게 유일하게 남은 것은 아내와 사랑하는 아들뿐. 이제, 그를 찾는 것은 소문을 듣고 전국 각지에서 몰려든 구경꾼들과 빚쟁이뿐인 처량한 신세다. 몸과 마음이 모두 피폐해진 그에게 설상가상으로 아내는 이혼을 요구해 오고, 삶의 유일한 희망인 아들 ‘서진’이와 함께 살 수 없게 되자 태식은 깊은 절망감에 빠지게 된다. 이제 더 이상 물러 설 곳도, 잃을 것도 없는 인생 막장의 늙은 복서 태식은 다시금 희망을 품고 신인왕 전 출전을 결심하게 되는데…

ROUND OF 유상환

아무것도 하고 싶은 것이 없었다!! 하지만 이제 권투로 세상과 싸울 것이다.

패싸움과 삥듣기가 하루 일과인 상환. 어느 날 큰 패싸움에 휘말려 합의금이 필요하자 동네 유지의 돈을 노린 강도 사고를 벌이게 되고 이 사건으로 상환은 소년원에 수감된다. 수감 첫날부터, 권투부 짱 ‘권록’과 한판 싸움을 벌이고 독방에 갇히고 순조롭지 않은 생활이 시작된다. 권록과의 싸움을 눈 여겨 본 교도 주임은 상환에게 권투부 가입을 권한다. 하고 싶은 것도 되고 싶었던 것도 없던 19살의 상환에게 권투는 처음으로 무언가 할 수 있다는 의지와 기쁨을 깨달아 간다. 그러던 어느 날, 공사장에서 일 하던 아버지가 갑작스런 사고로 돌아가시고 할머니 마저 쓰려졌다는 청천벽력 같은 소식이 전해져 온다. 쇼크에 쌓인 상환은 아버지를 잃은 슬픔을 잊고 할머니가 하루빨리 깨어 날수 있도록 신인왕 전에 출전해 결승의 꿈을 이뤄보려는 전의를 불태우는데…

Professional Review of "Crying Fist DTS Limited Edition"

View Professional Review:
April 2, 2008

This professional review refers to Crying Fist (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)
The traditional underdog boxing story gets a Korean facelift in Ryoo Seung Wan's Crying Fist, a genre-busting box office smash about two men from different walks of life searching for a little redemption. Rather than focus on one boxer alone, the film explores two different fighters, both of whom are undergoing troubling upheavals in their personal lives.

Ryoo Seung Bum (from Arahan and No Manners) plays Yu Sang Hwan, an angry teenage punk with a penchant for crime. His out-of-control antics result in constant brushes with the law, a pattern of behavior that eventually lands him in prison. His hot-temper sparks a number of jailhouse fights, a fact which paves the way for his acceptance into the prison's boxing program. While Sang Hwan reluctantly steps into the ring to vent his frustrations, he soon finds that it may be his ticket out of his delinquent lifestyle.

Choi Min Sik (Old Boy), plays Kang Tae Shik the other half of the film's boxing duo. Unlike the wayward youth Sang Hwan, Tae Shik is an older man going through a midlife crisis of the most serious kind. Having once won the silver medal for boxing, Tae Shik is now up to his ears in debt with creditors and various shady criminal types. With his family disintegrating and his money situation dire, Tae Shik is forced to earn cash on the streets, utilizing his boxing skills in a most unconventional way. Rather than dish out punishment, Tae Shik is forced to take it, offering himself up as a punching bag for any passerby who's willing to pay the required fee.

Crying Fist cuts back and forth between the two characters, as they both struggle to take back a measure of control in their lives. The film does a fantastic job of integrating the performances of Ryoo Seung Bum and Choi Min Sik into one powerful whole. Each storyline is worthy of its own movie, but director Ryoo Seung Wan rightfully combines the two in order to avert formulaic notions associated with these kind of films.

Most boxing movies focus on a singular individual, an underdog who trains hard for the big fight. Even the most pedestrian boxing film will still be able to earn a hefty measure of sympathy and loyalty from its audience in favor of the film's protagonist. Crying Fist, however, succeeds in aligning the viewers with both of its protagonists, a circumstance which causes a peculiar kind of problem once the finale kicks in. If we, as the audience, recognize that each man desperately needs this win, who do we cheer for in the final bout? With our divided loyalties, we can only watch as the film's gripping resolution plays out, with no clue as to what will happen or what we hope will happen to our two characters. At the end of the day, it may only be a movie, but Crying Fist is a gritty, powerful film that captures your attention from the very first frame and throws you headlong into its double plot. Although who wins in the climactic bout is revealed by story's end, the real winner of Crying Fist is most definitely the audience.

I must admit to approaching this film with some trepidation. After all, the only other film I'd seen by director Ryoo was Arahan, and while that was fun, mindless entertaiment, I was hard-pressed to imagine him succeeding with something serious.

My fears were unfounded, because this is a genre-defying drama which succeeds wonderfully. Choi Min Sik will always be watchable, whatever the role and whatever the film, and he imbues his down-and-out boxer with real humanity. Moments that, in lesser films, would have been cliched and saccharine, here turn our expectations around and force us to see the world as it can be, rather than through the lens of stereotype.

I have many favorite scenes here, but one that stands out concerns Gang (Choi) being beaten by a gang led by a former Asian Games teammate. Most viewers could recite the predictable path this scene takes, and they'd be wrong. Gang takes his beating, not with spitting defiance or whimpering fatalism, but with a dignity both stubborn and admirable. Choi handles the difficult task of presenting a man driven beyond his bounds but still clinging to whatever shreds remain of his past life, and handles it superbly. Not surprising, since every performance that Choi essays is marked by subtlety and nuance.

The greatest surprise, however, came from Ryoo Seung Bum, who plays Yoo Sang Hwan. Since I'd only seen him in Arahan, I must confess I didn't have a very high opinion of his acting skills. The fact that he's the brother of the director compounded my concerns. But his performance here is excellent: he inhabits his character with an angry energy that's totally compellling. No sign here of the charming doofus from Arahan, Yoo is all pent-up aggression and fury, erupting at the slightest provocation.

That is not to say that he presents just an aggressive bonehead, full of violence and braggadocio. We see that Yoo is constantly on the edge of exploding, but there's a tension keeping him in check. Even the way he smokes, long drags that draw the burning edge right up the tube, hints at the way he's struggling to keep from flying apart. The sheer physicality that he used in Arahan with naive enthusiasm, and which gave that film much of its energy and charm, here gives a portrait of a man constantly on the edge of explosion. Not much charm here, but a lot of energy.

Given these two fine actors, the story tells itself. There are some moments that drag, particularly those dealing with Gang, whose life is desperate and who has little reason for optimism. But these moments are few. As the focus shifts between the two desperate characters, we are entangled in their lives and problems, and when we come to the crucial fight, we find we're facing a fight where we want both fighters to win.

I won't tell you who wins, but I will tell you that I was surprised yet again by the quality of the fight scene. Not, I hasten to add, because of its bone-crunching and kidney-jellying effects, but because it was heartbreakingly realistic. For an audience more accustomed to MTV-style sharp cuts and frequent editing for 'highlights', it might seem tedious, but to me it displayed the reality of the fight, and the evolution of the characters, far better than any amount of dialogue could have done.

It also provided a suitable ending for a film that presents a microcosm of the human condition: you get a kicking now and again, but life goes on. Goethe would have been pleased. (Cultural note: Goethe penned the quote often attributed to Nietzsche: "What does not kill me makes me stronger." What's with those Germanic types, eh?)
