About Showdown, The
Manchuria, 1619. Chinese and Joseon forces clash in a deadly winter battle, and three soldiers manage to survive. Taking refuge in an abandoned tavern, Heon Myung (Park Hee Soon), Do Young (Jin Goo), and Du Soo (Ko Chang Seok) appear to be compatriots from the same side, but each man is harboring secrets of his own. As the hours wear on, loyalties wavers, tables turn, and friends turn into foes as each man's true nature is slowly revealed. The real battle for survival has only just begun.

The first directorial effort from I Saw the Devil and The Unjust screenwriter Park Hoon Jung, The Showdown stages a good ol' Mexican standoff in Manchuria. The handsomely lensed period actioner launches a battle of both words and swords, as each soldier tries to kill the other first through strategy and ambush. The Showdown has a formidable lineup of actors in Park Hee Soon (A Barefoot Dream), Jin Goo (Mother), and Ko Chang Suk (Rough Cut), not to mention Kim Gab Soo and Jeon Gook Hwan in supporting roles.
