The K-movie Escape from Mogadishu set in the Somali Civil War is now available as a streaming service.
It’s been a while since I watched a good movie without necessities.
The movie Escape from Mogadishu begins with Korea’s foreign policy in Somalia to join the UN.
Actor Kim Yoon-seok was in role of the Korean ambassador who looks a little clumsy, and actor Cho In-sung was in role of the councilor with a slightly sloppy and slightly loose style.
A civil war broke out in Somalia, and rebels entered Mogadishu.
Escape from Mogadishu’s full-fledged story begins after the North Korean Embassy, which had been at odds with South Korea, was occupied by the forces that had requested the duke.
The movie Escape from Mogadishu is about South Korea and North Korea working together to escape Mogadishu.
Actor Heo Joon-ho, who plays the role of the North Korean ambassador, stands out quite a bit.
In particular, it seems to reflect North Korea’s diplomatic power in Africa at that time by looking at the North Korea’s ambassador who is much heavier and more experienced than the South Korea;s ambassador who feels inexperienced.
Along with this, I think it’s the director’s intentional setting.
Personally, my favorite actor Koo Kyo-hwan plays the role of a North Korean councilor.
It showed the role of a straightforward style along with loyalty to the North Korea.
It shows a constant confrontation with Jo In-sung, who plays the role of a South Korean councilor, giving the impression of keeping the center of the play.
The escape from the vehicle, which is shown while spending a considerable amount of time in the second half of the movie Escape from Mogadishu, is also overwhelming.
The car de-chasing play, which begins differently than expected, certainly raises the anxiety of the movie to its peak.
This actor, who is remembered as the most impressive actor in the movie Escape from Mogadishu, is Peter Kawa.
There weren’t many scenes of his appearance, but the expression doesn’t leave easily.
Escape from Mogadishu
Escape from Mogadishu based on a true story.
The reason for the generous review of this film may be that the director has drawn a clear line on inter-Korean relations.
There are not many scenes where the South and the North stay together at the embassy.
Unlike movies at this time, it is expected that the South and the North would have stayed at the embassy much closer together.
Even though I could add more of this part, I think it was better not to put it in but to remove it.
The scenes after arriving at Kenya Airport are enough to feel sorry for them.
The actors’ acting that made me feel this way was also good.
You can now watch the movie Escape from Mogadishu at home, so I recommend you to watch it.
