A phantom sniper methodically assassinates key figures in a South Korean intelligence investigation. Special Agent Ryu and his partner, Lee, suspect North Korea's most lethal female operative, Hee. When a security breach prompts the theft of high-tech liquid explosive, CTX, from South Korean authorities, Ryu and Lee are certain there's a mole within their ranks. Deceptions are uncovered, loyalties questioned and two nations threatened in the thriller that smashed the Korean box office record set by TITANIC!
A dazzling action movie from South Korea, Shiri follows two South Korean government agents, Ryu and Lee, as they pursue a female super-assassin from North Korea. Meanwhile, an elite paramilitary squad from North Korea has stolen a shipment of CTX, an undetectable liquid explosive of enormous power, which they've planted all over the city of Seoul. As their investigations are successively foiled, Ryu and Lee begin to suspect that there is a mole within the ranks of the agency--and it may be one of them. Both hyperstylish and hyperrealistic, Shiri rips along as a smooth fusion of Hong Kong and American action movies. Ryu's troubled romance with his alcoholic fiancée adds a striking emotional counterpoint to the blazing gunfights and high-speed chases; the ending is unexpectedly moving. It's not surprising that this film beat Titanic's box-office records in Korea. --Bret Fetzer

|Nowhere to Hide
Lowest new price: $7.70
Lowest used price: $4.45
List price: $14.98
A U.S. marshal guards a hit man slated to testify against a mobster.
The most kaleidoscopic crime thriller you'll ever see. Nowhere to Hide is about a team of cops tracking down a murderous drug lord--but the plot is the only ordinary thing about the movie. Nowhere to Hide uses just about every visual trick imaginable: slow motion, rapid-fire editing, different film textures (from gritty black and white to luminous color), freeze-frames, as well as techniques that have only become possible with computers and that are impossible to describe. But the movie has more than visual razzle-dazzle: scenes go off in bizarre directions, the tone shifts radically from hyperviolence to total sentimentality (in one scene, the loose-cannon detective is brutally beating a handcuffed prisoner; moments later, he's as happy as a little boy when his sister gives him a pair of gloves), the characters are outrageously melodramatic. The soundtrack shares this amazing cinematic schizophrenia, featuring light pop songs, shrieking heavy metal, moody Spanish guitar, and soaring classical. The overall effect is dizzying, disorienting, but at the same time giddy and exciting. The closest American equivalent is Charlie's Angels; these are movies that have moved beyond story logic and character development into sheer sensory enjoyment; movies that push action-movie techniques to the point of becoming almost avant-garde, some insane hybrid of John Woo and Jean-Luc Godard. Not to be missed. --Bret Fetzer

Sex Is Zero is to South Korea what Porky's, American Pie, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High are to the United States. The Korean film has all the classic elements of a sex comedy: gratuitous breast shots, unusual use of bodily fluids, and a plot that's secondary to the physical comedic skills of the actors. Eun-Sik (Chang Jung Lim) is a 28-year-old sad sack of a college student. Though he's served in the military and is a skilled martial artist, he's insecure and socially inept. He accidentally wolfs down a sandwich made from rat poison and fried, um, sticky fluids (courtesy of his bizarre roommates). He ingests a drugged beverage intended to make women frisky. And when part of his dinner lands on a pin-up poster, what's a guy to do but lick it off? The highest-grossing comedy in South Korea, Sex Is Zero is slowed down with some drama that doesn't ring true. When the girl of his dreams suffers from a complicated abortion (after an affair with the selfish campus playboy), Eun-Sik matures into a caregiver--a role that is out of context for him in this movie. --Jae-Ha Kim
