    Culver City, CA (February 9, 2004) - Hardcore martial arts action meets the frenzied
    pace of Speed in TUBE, the explosive story of a man pushed to the edge of insanity and the
    maverick cop determined to stop him. Available on DVD and VHS April 20from Columbia
    TriStar Home Entertainment, TUBE features enough explosions and cutting-edge fight
    sequences to satisfy the most zealous martial arts aficionado.

    Elite Intelligence becomes a deadly weapon when former undercover agent, T (Sang-Min
    Park) unwittingly becomes the sacrificial bait in a deadly agency operation and watches as his
    government turns against him. Determined to exact revenge, T takes a crowded subway hostage
    and threatens to exact one of history's deadliest acts of terrorism - taking the lives of 13 million
    civilians. As life and death hang in the balance, the single greatest act of courage falls to
    Detective Jay (Kim Seuk-Hun), who must face off with T in the deadliest showdown.

    Produced in South Korea with one of the most lavish budgets ever seen in that country,
    TUBE had its theatrical premiere cancelled when only a month before the scheduled date, the
    tragic real-life Taegu arson attack occurred, killing 198 passengers on a subway train.
    Considered too eerily similar, the film's release was ultimately postponed for four months.

    This has been cut by about 6 minutes, if that info is correct. Korean run time is 118 minutes. No big deal, but still...

    It says fullscreen mode above, but it's actually 2.35:1 anamorphic. Original Korean language track is DD 2.0.

    I liked it.
