Tube: Taking This Train Could Be Hazardous To Your Health

Korean auteur, Woon-Hak Baek made a splash in North American a few years ago with “”Shiri”” – a political thriller that grabbed the viewer and would not let go. With “”Tube,”” he does it again – think “”Speed”” – but on a train, and with a bad guy who has a genuinely good reason for being as bent and vicious as he is.

“”Tube”” is orchestrated almost like a symphony: the opening five minutes is a violent set piece that introduces the villain, the hero and the female lead [who is not quite a romantic lead]
