Escape from Mogadishu movie review: Korean diplomats in peril in Somalia-set action thriller by The Battleship Island director Ryoo Seung-wan

  • Set in late 1990, the film follows ambassadors from both North and South Korea in Somalia who are forced into an uneasy alliance during outbreaks of violence
  • Despite thrills and a heart-stopping climax, the film lacks significant commentary on anything unfolding on screen and only broadly addresses the Korea conflict
