Their relationship wasn't exactly original i mean troubled kid grows attached to loner who turns out to be superhuman sounds like Leon: The Professional (just want to point out that he even had a cactus that meant alot to him like Leon and his flower) with obvious differences, but i honestly felt like their relationship was more believable than Leon and whatever Portmans characters name was even though they were together for a fraction of the time they were; the last scene before she is kidnapped with her "you are more mean but i don't hate you for it because then there would be no one that i like" line broke my heart.
The Man From Nowhere certainly doesn't hold any pretense to the complicated mystery narrative of Park's film, but I suppose that its version of vengeful action is at least a bit more palatable than that of Morel's film.
You may recognize our action hero from the film "Mother" where he played a mentally retarded son.
