Hitman: Agent Jun

Cine 2 - 12/04/2020 - 21:30


Festival 2020 cancelled.

At a young age Jun gets recruited in a top secret training program and grows up to be the ultimate lethal weapon of the Korean government. Capable to solve two Sudoku’s – you know, expert level – and neutralize a dozen terrorists at the same time, this alpha male is the incarnation of quick and efficient justice. If it wouldn’t have been for Jun’s lifelong dream of becoming a comic book writer… His bosses aren’t exactly thrilled imagining their local Rambo drawing cartoons, so Jun fakes his own death. Fifteen years later and with a new identity, Jun is now a failed comic writer incapable of supporting his family, that doesn’t have a clue about his past. One night after one too many glasses of soju, Jun draws from his secret agent experience to write a new comic on the web. The good news: it’s an instant massive hit, finally! The bad news: with all these classified secrets out in the open, his old bosses can’t wait to pay him a little visit. Same goes for his arch enemy, whose face Jun back in the day unfortunately scorched while poking out one of his eyes… In the mood for a feel-good movie without any nasty viruses? Here’s what you need: a hilarious version of TRUE LIES charged with manga intermezzo’s à la KILL BILL and combats worthy of THE RAID! The quintessence of quality entertainment!
