When their special chicken recipe becomes a massive hit with the public, it is a case of stakeout meets takeout, as cooking and crime-busting get ever more confused, until this ensemble of misfits finally learns why they were put together in the first place, and why their leader Captain Ko (Ryu Seung-yong, Seven Years of Night, 2017) has the nickname 'Zombie'. "There’s lots of absurdity in what we do," says Ko - and when it comes to crazy laughs and over-the-top fighting, Extreme Job delivers to order.
This screening will be followed by a conversation between director Lee Byeong-heon and Anton Bitel. Anton Bitel is a freelance film critic and lecturer in Classical Languages at Oxford University.
