Are you ready to rumble? Director Kim Jin Sung throws his metaphorical hat into the squared circle with Geochilmaru - The Showdown, a thoroughly exciting, no holds barred, fight filled extravaganza that looks to be the latest Korean film to align itself with the rich tradition of martial arts cinema, a legacy that extends from even before Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon to Tony Jaa's Tom Yum Goong! Shot on digital video, this modestly budgeted actioner centers on the fates of eight extremely talented martial artists who all hail from different walks of life. Each and every one of these eager, gifted combatants has been invited to travel to an isolated mountainous region. But for what purpose?
Once they reach their destination, these eight very different men are forced to do battle, engaging in a formal competition to determine the best of the best. The prize? It seems that the last man standing in this free-for-all martial arts competition will then win the opportunity to go toe to toe with the mysterious host of the tournament, an enigmatic fighter known only by the name Geochilmar! As these men wage war for the throne of the Murmigjon, who will win out? Instead of relying on computer-generated images or high-flying wire work, the director hired real life martial artists to do all their own stunts. Featuring wall to wall action, unbelievable physical acrobatics, and a special appearance from singer Kim C, Geochilmaru - The Showdown is one movie that's got a real kick!
