The Point Men to save hostages in Afghanistan
The Point Man is the new action movie from Korean filmmaker Yim Soonrye starring Hwang Jung-Min and Hyun-Bin.
In the film, a group of Korean tourists are taken hostage by an extremist Taliban group in Afghanistan. The Korean government dispatches Jae-ho, known as one of Korea’s most skilled diplomats, in order to handle the situation. Once he arrives, he asks for the Afghan government’s cooperation and uses every means possible to free the hostages.
However, his efforts go in vain. Due to his failure, he’s forced to work with Dae-sik, a special agent who is an expert on the Middle East. As they begin making their move to get to the Taliban, the first hostage death occurs. With nowhere else to turn, the two become unlikely allies in a race against time to save the rest of the hostages.
The Point Men hits select theaters in the U.S. and Canada on January 27. Watch the trailer below.
