Netflix is known for sometimes just dropping trailers for its movies (and occasionally whole movies) with little fanfare. One that feels like it could do with more ballyhoo is Carter, a new Korean action movie that promises some incredibly intense action scenes. Check out the trailer…

Two months into a deadly pandemic originating from the DMZ that has devastated the US and North Korea, “Carter” (Joo Won) awakens, with no recollections of his past. In his head is a mysterious device, and in his mouth, a lethal bomb. A strange voice in his ears gives him orders. The bomb may go off at any time — unless he rescues the girl who is the sole antidote to the virus. But the CIA and a North Korean coup are hot on his heels…

It looks to be an exciting blend of Lone Wolf & Cub-style action, with a dash of The Raid, a smidgen of The Suicide Squad and just the tiniest hint of Train To Busan. With luck, it'll also be impressive on its own terms.

Carter hits Netflix on 5 August.
