City of Violence

City of Violence (2006; dir. Ryoo Seung-wan) 4
This was a fun martial arts/gangster movie with a great sense of humor, including a number of references to cult films like The Warriors. Highlights include some beautiful street-fighting choreography, and even some good acting. The only disappointment was that there weren’t more action sequences (though the last thirty minutes is basically one extended rumble).
