Lee Nguyen directed “The Drug King” A stunning movie. It stars Kim Sung-Gyung, who plays the role of David Storey, a crack addict who turns into the local drug kingpin. The film tells the story of Storey’s rise and fall who was the kingpin of the drug trade in the latter part of the 1980s. It’s one the best films of the year and demonstrates how the media can make stories sensational before they have been thoroughly investigated. I suggest watching the film with a companion because you’ll be so involved.
The film opens in the year 1980, when the US government launches an investigation into the increase in drug use within the country. Two undercover cops, Det. Kim and Capt. Sam are assigned to the case. They soon realize that the kingpins have a very organised method of working.
Soon, they find out that Cho Soon, a drug lord, has an underground meeting spot that is used for the distribution of tons of heroin and cocaine across the United States. In return the drug lord offers to help them stop into pills from being introduced to the American market. But when the US government steals drugs from the South Korean consulate, the authorities bust the operation. The kingpin and his accomplices are detained and the two cops are left with the task of finding the drug lord, and bring him to justice.
Soon after the bust, police are able to track down the drug king and then take them to prison. The film leaps forward 11 years, when the South Korean president visits Korea. They soon become friends and are in love. They decide to free North Korea from communism. But, when they arrive, they find that the drug lord had already left. They must now band together to end the drug war for good.
After the film is over the action shifts to New York City where the two police officers are brought before a judge in order to take on the drug king. Lee Do-Hui plays Kim Kwon Soo, also known as Kimbo and played by Kwak Derng. The film shows two cops talking over the phone and how they hunt down the drug lord who is in an enormous nightclub. They arrive just enough to shield the president from being shot. They are released by the police department after impressing them with their work.
Tong Soo, a Yakuza boss, visits the cops the next day. He threatens to kill Kim if they do not deliver the drugs to him in exchange for information about the presidential candidate. Kim is scared but is forced to act and orders the police to meet him at Kuk Sa Tong nightclub. He is greeted by Tong Soo who threatens to murder Kim should he not bring the drugs. ดูหนังฟรี They agree to give him ten million dollars if the demands are fulfilled. Kim is freaked out by the prospect of his life being spared, so Kim agrees to Tong’s demands.
Kim and Tong arrive at the airport to pick Kimbo up a few days later. But Park Chul-sik catches them as the south Korean national who is well-known as a fraudster. He impersonates President Chun Doo and swindles the Chinese people. He then flees to Hong Kong, but not before giving the president a horribly swelling face. Tong Soo helps Kim and Kimbo to bring the money to Hong Kong. They soon become enemies and try to escape with the drugs. Chow assists them in escaping the airport by supplying them with drugs.
A year later, Kim and Tong return to Hong Kong to defend their honor against Park and his army of martial arts expert soldiers. However, they are betrayed by Park, who intends to use their newfound comradeship to increase his drug empire. Now, Kim must use his master Tong Soo to defeat the enemy and free the streets of Hong Kong from the clutches of Park and his cronies. The real enemy has arrived – Kim’s childhood friend Lee Doo SAM. Although Sam is initially an athlete initially, he quickly falls for Park’s daughter. The film is very enjoyable with great fighting scenes and a few well-timed comedy scenes. It’s a well-written movie that offers a lot of entertainment value.
