The Korean espionage action thriller The Berlin File has action sequences as exciting as anything in the Bourne films. Where it falls short of that franchise is the needlessly confusing script--between North Korean, South Korean, Arab, Mossad and CIA agents for much of the film it's impossible to figure out what's going on or who's who. The plotting becomes much simpler in the second half and, as a consequence, the movie improves dramatically. This is well worth seeing for the action but with a less convoluted script it could have been a great film.
