  • Synopsis
  • The plot begins with meek, rules-obsessed salaryman Man-su (Gam Woo Sung) having just about the worst day imaginable, waking up late for work, only to be confronted by his wife asking for divorce on the grounds that he is too boring, followed by which he is fired from his job for the same reason. Matters get even worse after he decides to kick back at the system by urinating on the wall, an act which promptly lands him in trouble with the police. While waiting to be charged, he meets Cheul Gun (Kim Su Ro), a petty criminal who seems to have spent most of his life in and out of jail. One thing leads to another, and after a series of mishaps the two end up on the run from the law, armed and driving a stolen police car. The unfairness of it all pushes the tightly wound Man-su over the edge, and he decides to set the world to rights, resulting in a wild rampage with his new friend in tow.

    “Big Bang” successfully plays upon the frustrating truth that following the rules does not always lead to happiness or success, and indeed that these rules are all too often flaunted and exploited by those that make them. As such, although Man-su is a rather naïve soul, it is all too easy to sympathise with him and his gradual journey from committing innocuous misdemeanours to full-on wide-eyed assault and destruction. Although the film does run the risk of pandering to repressed male wish-fulfilment, featuring scenes of him beating up his boss, shooting speed cameras and taking part in high speed street racing, Park holds steady, maintaining a serious edge and never allowing things to degenerate into farce. As such the proceedings have a surprisingly gritty and believable feel, and though the two protagonists eventually go too far in their anarchic crusade for justice, they remain sympathetic outlaw figures.
