The Roundup: No Way Out (2023) movie review.

In “Recap,” Ma Seok-do, Lee’s renegade cop, fights another pack of wild baddies. A new sequel, The Roundup: No Way Out, delivers more episodic excitement, though, as in The Roundup, any scene without Lee feels like a waste of time. Both The Roundup films are pretty generic, beyond an adequate serving of slapstick-y violence, while The Outlaws features a compelling villain and a well-used ensemble cast. Roundup: No Way Out doesn’t improve on Roundup’s slightly refined formula, but it goes down a bit softer and is noticeably smoother.

Only Lee, a scene-stealing character actor, can make you want to start a wild character like Ma. I feel bad about snapping their wrists, dropping them across the room (often literally) or body slamming them into doors, tables, windows and what have you. He wastes no time explaining himself, not to peers, eyewitnesses, informants or doubters. Ma recoils and sighs easily because only he is strong enough to punch through all that pesky police procedural red tape. Synopsis: With no way out, the Japanese yakuza sends a ruthless hitman, Ricky (Munetaka Aoki), to collect a stolen shipment of Hyper, a new addictive club drug, from the White Shark Clan, partnered with thieves their Korean.

Soon, Ma discovers the real reason why no one else has stopped the sale of Hyper in Cheongdam: the White Shark Clan is not only protected, but actively aided by corrupt cop Joo Song-chul (Lee Junhyuk). , who beats a friend. . officer to death with a crowbar in his first scene, and was only identified as a policeman about 30 minutes later. This kind of question-and-answer turn speaks to the effects-driven nature of these films, which depend on simple summer movie pleasures like physical comedy routines and/or one-sided fistfights that make Don Leen look like a distant painful cousin. .
