[TRAILER] The 'Beast Cop' Ma Seok-do heads to a foreign country to extradite a suspect, but soon after his arrival, he discovers additional murder cases and hears about a vicious killer who has been committing crimes against tourists for several years.

Starring Ma Dong-seok, Son Suk-ku Choi Gwi-hwa, Park Ji-hwan, Heo Dong-won, Ha Jun Jeong, Jae-kwang, Nam Moon-chul.

Directed by Lee Sang-yong. A South Korean production in Korean. It's a sequel, but I haven't seen the first film (The Outlaws) either and I wasn't thrown off at all. Another sequel has already been released in South Korea.

96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

Widely available streaming. JustWatch.

mediareport was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six recent films that were big hits outside of the US but didn't get much attention stateside. There was a problem, though, in that I was only able to narrow the field to 14 films. Fortunately Soap_and_Bathetic kicked in an extra $15 to push me to share the entire list. I'll be using the tag #PopcornWorld

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

Banger. It's not really a coincidence that South Korea, India, and China dominate this list. They have the most successful and vibrant non-US live-action film industries.
