JUNG Jin-soo, a South Korean intelligence agent, comes across an unidentifiable operative, a 'ghost,' while surveilling a North Korean weapons deal in Berlin. The mystery figure is a North Korean secret agent, PYO Jong-seong, whose information cannot be found on any intelligence database. Jung quickly goes after Pyo to unveil his identity and gets himself embroiled in a vast international conspiracy. In the meanwhile, another North Korean operative, DONG Myung-soo, is dispatched to Berlin with a secret agenda to purge Pyo and take control of the North Korean embassy. Dong sets a trap to frame Pyo's wife, RYUN Jung-hee, for treason and tightens the noose around Pyo's neck. Pyo surveils his wife with hopes of clearing accusation against her but he plunges into deeper confusion when he discovers her secret.

Timothy G (fr) wrote: Under the Eight Ball Documentary Review by Joseph Robinson November 18, 2009 Every so often a documentary film comes along that is so surprising and inspiring that it has the nagging affect of entering into the deepest hallows of a post-modern cynical mind and acknowledging all that is there. But what ends up so shocking is how in this treatise to expose the evil doing of mankind at its worst is a love so profound as to move your soul despite the horrors of ?the truth.? Timothy Grey and his girlfriend/film partner Breanne Russell direct this documentary tour de force in as a personal of a journey as one can image. This is true documentary story of the bonds of love within a family during the tragic discovery and untimely illness and demise of Mr. Grey?s Sister ? Lori Hall Steele. The tragic illness and unfortunate end is told and filmed as unflinching and honest as one can bear. As witnessed by Grey/Russell?s most telling camera, you travel through an earnest and personal review of her life, the struggle to determine the illness that has its grips on her, and then ultimate journey to the end of her life ? and beyond. Grey/Russell and Lori Hall Steele?s family are then left in the grief stricken state of asking why? Why indeed. From this tragic inspiration is born the question of why? Why did this illness occur? What caused the health concerns from the beginning? What was the troubled medical industry responsible for? What role did the environment play? What role did the fact that Lori Hall Steele ran out of insurance play in this tragedy? And finally, what role did pre-communist China, Nazi Germany, the Cold War, and the United States Government have in all this? That?s right, from this simple question of a grief stricken ?why?? Grey/Russell launch into a line of questions many don?t wish to have asked. In a highly stylized flourish of personal creativity, this documentary art piece dares to take a personal, private, family matter and dig ever so gently and then more aggressively into all that is truth in the manufacture and testing of bioweapons in America. As told in linear fashion this true-to-life script could easily play out like a courtroom drama in a compressed 2 hour and 4 minute burst of emotional, edge-of-your-seat drama. This line of events is exposed over a period of nearly ten months as the exploration of Lori Hall Steele?s illness and what could be causing her to head so fast into unrecoverable sickness. We find out very quickly what ails her is Lyme disease and that this is the reason she is made to struggle so. From failure to diagnose, to withdrawals of treatment, to refusals to issue known medications that could have prolonged or even saved her life, the tragic first act is rife with head shacking witnessing of just how bad the healthcare system is and what levels of denial we are all willing to accept in the name of capitalism and personal freedom to chose an insurance-based healthcare system. Then, She dies. In what has to be the most courageous act of film making I?ve ever watched, Grey/Russell turns the camera on their own and the family?s grief and we are witness to it all. Unflinchingly, we move from hospital to hospice, to final hours as treated by Grey/Russell with a ghostly telling of the time we live with those we love as they live out their end of time. We then are witness to a cinematic requiem in honor of Lori, with a love poem in image to his dear Sister in what is a fantastic musical and ethereal call of a Spirit Home as told through film. In a homage, unsurpassed in recent memory, this scene alone is worth taking the journey, no matter how painful the steps. As act three unfolds, the tone shifts as Grey/Russell try to get to the bottom of the question of ?why.? The directors stand on the shoulders of the great documentarians: Michael Moore with Fahrenheit 9/11 and Morgan Spurlock with Super Size Me, in telling a personal story with an honest and courageous eye while including credible witnesses from a huge cast of supporters. Experts include doctors, professors, medical scientist, government historians, and the like. In the role of character, along side the family and girlfriend Breanne, Tim Grey, filmmaker as partner to the story, uses this modern documentary style to add accessibility and connection to the material. If the audience gets any closer to Timothy Grey as filmmaker and the emotional witness in this tragedy, he?d have to adopt us all into his family and hope we brought enough food to pass at his poor sister?s memorial reception. This is all very heavy stuff. It is technical in nature, and at times hard to swallow. But it is worth it. What works with the film is the way the detail is explained in a nicely stylized fashion without patronizing nor ?dumbing-down? the material for a ?lesser audience.? Under the Eight Ball is an intelligent film with a critically important message that could affect us all. If you watch this documentary you won?t think of a wood tick, our government, or your family in the same way again. The climax note to us all involves the town of Lyme, CT. Grey/Russell interview the Mother of four long-ago suffering children of the yet unnamed Lyme disease. As she explains her children?s journey, we are brought full circle to the tragic impact of how fear can kill on and on into the future. The fear we weak humans possess that allowed us to make this nasty germ and unwittingly (or not) unleash it on our own. We learn that her family suffered when the disease was first ?discovered.? The facts become ever clear as she tells her story. We realize it is horribly and hauntingly familiar to the one we just watched. And we are all then left with the question: Why is this allowed to happen over and over again?

Her attempt to infiltrate their ranks will bring her closer to her own death than she ever imagined! Learning nothing from the failures of the third film, HELLRAISER: DEADER follows yet another news reporter that has become wrapped up in a murderous plot involving everyone's favorite puzzle box. The original script by Full Moon frequent Benjamin Carr had nothing to do with HELLRAISER to begin with, which helps to explain why the plot seems so detached from the series. Kari Wuhrer plays the typical bad girl reporter who is filled with spunk and attitude, but lacks any real personality. Her character is a generic stereotype that fails to involve the audience in her troubles. What is worse, Amy never really uncovers anything useful about the Deaders outside of the location of their hideout, nor does she ever determine how Winter has managed to undermine death, leaving much left unexplained by the ending. While Rick Bota brings back the clean visual palette from HELLSEEKER, nothing in DEADER manages to make up for the bland and boring plot. -Carl ManesI Like Horror Movies
Paul K (ag) wrote: I watched this on pay tv last night. If you've ever worked for a temp agency, esp. a clerical service, you'll have to call up your co-sufferers and watch this movie together. You'll be falling out of your chair laughing at the same scenarios you've encountered in your employment. Well, maybe not all of them. But still, its cute and very much right on, but skillfully lifted to a slightly symbolic level. Oh, and if you haven't worked for a temp agency, watch it anyway. It's funny and smart comedy. In a similar vein as the movie, After Midnight, in which the main character, Paul, tries to get home from his job in the city, but is detained time after time again, in increasingly scary and exhausting ways, until it's time to go into work again. The kind of a movie that feeds on our common, silly nightmares in which a simple task never seems to get done.
