Film: Kundo - Age of the Rampant


Once again, the South Koreans have delivered a masterpiece of samurai style antics. The main cast comprise the 'Kundo', a band of rebel fighters who are driven by the Robin Hood motive of stealing from the undeserving rich and distributing to the poor. Their arch nemesis is Jo Yoon, an illegitimate nobleman's son who is a scarily cold and who is also a deadly master in the martial arts. Of course, much bloodshed ensues and the film builds up to a grand climactic battle between the two sides. If you are in the mood for a kick-ass martial arts flick which you can pass off as cultured foreign cinema (there are subtitles), this will fit the bill nicely.
