Is it possible to bring those to justice that are as corrupt and evil as we imagine some to be? I'm not talking any conspiracy theories here, no I'm talking those who are corrupt because ... well you know money! And how to prove their guilt ... in the real world that is quite something to achieve and even if you do that, they mostly have so much power, they walk away with almost nothing to fear.
But this is a movie, so we can expect that at least there is a ... fighting chance of that happening one way or the other. No pun intended. And if you watch a movie about that, why not make it this Korean effort. When it comes to action and intriguing story, South Korea has quite the output. I can really highly recommend quite a lot of their movies. And since they won best movie at least years Oscars the awareness of their industry has been raised (finally). Not for the faint hearted and maybe predictable for quite a lot of people, this still can entertain quite a lot to say the least!

Lee Kang-hee is an editorialist of a influential newspaper in South Korea. With the power of the press, he makes the congressman Jang Pil-woo to one of the candidates of the next presidential election. That is the result of a secret deal between Lee and Ahn Sang-goo, a political henchman of Jang Pil-woo. But Ahn makes an almost fatal error, when he gets caught pocketing the record on the Jang's slush fund. The prosecutor Woo Jang-hoon is about to investigate and becomes absolutely determined, because the case would help him making big steps in his career. Ahn gets in real trouble, when he gets dropped by Jang and should have been killed, but is able to flee. Now a bitter war starts between one who is lusting for power, the one who wants vengeance and the one who is eager for success.
