★★★★½ "An exciting, entertaining, tension-filled thriller." - Stuff.co.nz. 

Director Ryu Seung-wan’s political action thriller is based on an astonishing true story. 

Rival diplomats from North Korea and South Korea become trapped as civil war rages in Mogadishu, Somalia. With no aid from either government, their only shot at survival requires uniting with bitter adversaries to escape.

★★★★ "If Hollywood is looking for someone to take on the next Fast & Furious movie, they might want to give Ryoo Seung-wan a call." - Time Out

★★★★ "The fact the action is never without strong emotion makes it quite irresistible. The film ought to have a seat belt warning." - Sydney Morning Herald

★★★★ "This beautiful film is, in every way, a memorable experience." - The Australian

★★★★ "A rollicking masterclass in escalating tension." "Impeccable structure and pacing... well executed" - CineVue

★★★★ "An involving and suspenseful action-thriller that Ryoo Seung-wan handles with flair" - Houston Chronicle

"Propulsive and intelligently written" - Variety

"Propelled by a naturally cinematic true story, the thriller blends action with humor and heart to crowd-pleasing effect." - Deadline
