Escape from Mogadishu is a South Korean action drama film directed by Ryoo Seung-wan and starring Kim Yoon-seok, Jo In-sung, Heo Joon-ho, and Kim So-jin, which was released in 2021.
The political drama from South Korea is based on true events and takes place in the late 1980s and early 1990s, during the Somali Civil War and the north and south Koreans’ efforts to join the United Nations. It describes a perilous attempt by North and South Korean embassy workers stranded during the conflict to flee the country.
It was South Korea’s Oscar entry for best international feature and has that polished, high-quality feel to it. The third act, which culminates in an action movie car chase through war-zone chaos, is what makes the download price worthwhile.

According to a report from American media outlet Screen Daily, the film ranked fifth at the worldwide box office in the first week of August 2021. It surpassed 3.5 million admissions in 56 days, making it the first Korean film to do so in 2021.
