The only action film to make an impact at the TIFF was the Raid Redemption in 2011 which one the Mid night Madness People’s choice award . Asura, has a promising title but sadly doesn’t provide any thrill or exceptional action .
Detective Han has been engaged in nefarious activities ever since his wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Faced with accumulating medical bills, Han has decided to hand in his badge and work for Mayor, Park. Mayor Park wants to push through a multi-million-dollar development contract, and will go to any lengths to ensure it happens as long as Han does the dirty work. But Han’s involvement in two high profile cases, the disappearance of a high-profile witness and the strange death of a fellow officer, gets him sudden unwanted attention. As Internal Affairs possesses evidence of Han’s misdeeds, he has no choice but to covertly work for both sides — and place himself in twice the danger.
