The Man From Nowhere (2010)

Directed by Lee Jeong-beom  (original title: Ajeossi)

The Man From Nowhere, a top-notch action thriller, directed by Lee Jeong-beom has similarities to Luc Besson’s Leon: a dark horse next-door neighbor, a little girl (orphaned), and DEA cops. Lee’s film is darker (akin to its Korean pedigree) and serves up a spectacular dish of retribution, redemption, and revenge. 

It’s available on Netflix streaming, so go see it. Here's the US trailer (it's probably better if you don't watch it).
Here's the UK DVD trailer (which shows a lot of the action scenes) for those who have already seen the movie.
* Revision: this movie is more like Man On Fire than anything else (i'm not into that movie; that's why i dis-remembered).

Film reviews in fifty words (2011).
