The Drug King – A Movie Review

“The Drug King” was a film I watched while waiting for The DaVinci Code to be released. Being a fan of the first two films, I knew that I would be awed by this one. I figured someone who hadn’t seen any of them would be a good candidate to review the film. It can sometimes be difficult to find something fresh in a theatre filled with action, dramas, comedy flicks, thrillers and other genres. In this instance The Drug King is a great choice. It is a compelling story, superb acting and some truly bizarre creatures.

It takes place in Japan today and the hero Hidehiko Yamane, plays it. He is a young Japanese man who is transformed into a powerful and vicious drug lord. The acting is flawless and the story is captivating. the drug king (ma-yak-wang) (2018) เจ้าพ่อสองหน้า But the film is often missed in its focus on all the stale, repetitive characters, uninteresting plot developments, and uninteresting twists. This film would benefit from a better plot, more original characters, and better acting in order to stand out against the other action-packed movies of the current summer.

Instead, the film glides through the action as it’s designed to do: with little or no anticipation. There aren’t any brightly colored characters, spooky locations, vibrant costumes, Chinese mysticism or martial arts rituals. The action scenes are monotonous and the only thing that seem to change from scene to scene is Kim’s hairstyles and her clothes. There are a lot of boring scenes and activities in the film. The movie revolves around the drug trade from the drug traffickers to their victims, through the obligatory police meetings and inter-office politics. The only thing that is different from scene to scene are the colors of the uniforms.

Doo-sam is the main character in the movie. Doo-sam portrays Kim, the brilliant drug lord who is able to become a powerful figure on the Korean peninsula. He is a brilliant strategist and intelligent man. He is also a skilled planner and ambitious planner. He is master manipulator and plans to make use of the power of fear to attain his goals. He also loves Onmyo (Choi Hong-Sul) and wants to protect her. The film focuses on how power corrupts and the reasons why loyalty matters more than wealth in a country controlled by the drug trade.

However, Kim is also a determined and brutal criminal whose past is hidden from Onmyo. Kim is angry over the disappearance of her husband and suspects that he is involved in the drug trade. On the other hand, Doo-sam has a rival in drug lord Bum-shing, who wants to control the lucrative drug business. When the two fight it out over the turf of drugs, the police discover that Kim and his goons have also set up an interview with Yoo-jung, the Chinese drug Yoo-jung, the lord of the drug trade.

When the Chinese learn that Doosam and Yoo-jung are in a relationship they attempt to stop them but are defeated by the good officers of the Korean National Police Force (KNPF). They soon learn that Doo-sam and his gang have also kidnapped the daughter of the KNPF chief and taken her to their secret hideout. The KNPF decides to raid the compound and rescue the girl. Meanwhile, Doo-san realizes that the drug king also acquired a number of powerful weapons and decides to use them against the Koreans. The movie ends with a shoot-out between NPF and Doo-san’s gangs.

The film focuses on the lives of two distinct characters, highlighting the constantly changing culture of Korea. The first scene depicts the drug king and his crew having a barbecue while the helicopter hovers over. The Chinese restaurant in the background shows their traditional Chinese meals while Doo-sam and Yoo-jung sit together for their dinner. It is interesting to note that the choppers in background are actually Korean helicopters, which are used in military operations.

This film is not suitable for those who enjoy action scenes or superheroes. While the film has a lot of action sequences, it’s primarily a story about two different characters who to be caught in the middle of a power struggle. A lot of films follow a similar plot structure and the plot was not as complicated as I thought it would be for it was not written as screenplay. Overall, it’s a decent movie from Korea, but not as good as other favorites , like the Replacements and Meet the Parents.
