Kick the Moon

Kim Sang-jin, whose 1999 crime comedy Attack the Gas Station! was a hit in South Korea, followed it up with this 2001 feature about dissimilar schoolmates, a nerd (Lee Seong-jae) and a gang leader (Cha Seung-weon) who are transformed into local legends in the course of an epic rumble with kids from a rival school. The events of the day inspire each to emulate the other, so the nerd grows up to be a gangster and the gang leader a respected teacher. Though he sometimes stoops for cheap laughs, Kim is a virtuoso choreographer of large-scale fight scenes. In Korean with subtitles. 118 min.
