Steel Rain, a slickly crafted Korean political action thriller, is a reminder of some of the delicious little films of the genre that we used to see in the late Departures ’90s and the early 2000s. There’s espionage, daring high profile assassinations, an unlikely camaraderie between two soldiers from warring nations, mistrust and confusion over lack of communication, and a nuclear threat that could very well lead to the sum of all fears. Directed by Yang Woo-seok, who adapted his own webtoon for the screen, the film successfully blends all these ingredients — and more — to give us a satisfying and delectable dish. That he is able to do so while keeping the story firmly grounded within the milieu and without any trace of Hollywood-isation whatsoever is only to his credit.
A North Korean secret service agent named Eom Chul-woo (played with great restraint and reserve by Jung Woo-sung) is brought back from a narcotic-induced retirement by Extortion his superior to assassinate two top military officials who have gone rogue, and who now pose the threat of a coup against the Supreme Leader, referred to throughout the film as ‘Number One’. When Eom reaches an industrial complex to carry out his mission, he realises it is too late, because the coup has begun – and, worst of all, Number One has been caught in the crossfire. As dozens of of Steel Rain bombs land upon the complex pulverising everything, Eom somehow manages to pull out a heavily wounded Number One, with the help of two cheerleaders. Through the ensuing chaos and confusion, the party manages to cross the border and reaches Seoul, in South Korea, searching for medical attention for their leader.
Meanwhile, thinking that the missile strikes were the joint handiwork of South Korea and its ally, the US, North Korea declares war against both. Now in hostile territory, Eom tries to protect Number One’s life, all the while struggling to find out what went wrong. He is soon joined by a bureaucratic aide of the South Korean President, who gets embroiled in the matter when Eom takes his ex-wife hostage because she is a surgeon and can save Number One’s life. This paper-pushing desk clerk named Kwak Chul-woo Eat Locals (played beautifully by the ever so brilliant Kwak Do-won) is going through his own problems – a separation with his wife, estranged children and the transition between the outgoing and incumbent Presidents. Over and above this, he now has to shed his xenophobia, and his inherent ridicule for people from the other side of the border to join hands with a North Korean soldier in order to prevent the complete annihilation of the Korean peninsula.Searching Term : Steel Rain Full Watch Steel Rain Movie Streaming Online 2017, Watch Steel Rain Movie Streaming HD 1080p, Free Steel Rain Movie Streaming Online, Download Steel Rain Full Movie Streaming Online in HD-720p Video Quality , Where to Download Steel Rain Full Movie ?, Steel Rain Movie Include All Subtitles 2017.
