THE MERCILESS is a South Korean thriller in which a young cop finds his loyalties divided after befriending a notorious criminal while undercover in prison.

Violence

Scenes of violence include beatings, fistfights, stabbings and shootings, occasionally resulting in large sprays of blood. A man is tortured by having boiling liquid poured onto his skin, while another man delivers a savage beating using his wrist watch as a makeshift knuckleduster.

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms including bastard', 'bitch', 'shit' and 'asshole'.

The film also includes strong verbal sex references, as well as references to drugs and drug dealing.
