[manager] Mr. Lee,

we're running late.

We need more workers and they want more money.

[Lee] You know the one thing that I hate most in this world?


I understand, sir.

-But they need more time-- -It's unfortunate

that what they want and what they get

is two different things.

Cut all their wages in half.

-Cut in half, sir-- -As I just said,

everyone gets half.

-With all due respect-- -Then,

next week,

and they all have quit,

they will come begging for work.

We'll give them a raise.

I say, what, 25 percent?


need to give yourself an opportunity

to be a nice guy for once.

[telephone vibrates]

They didn't pay you enough.


[action music]


I'm sick of waiting, Lee.

[Yanto] I sent my men in.

Do you think this is a game?

Do you have any idea who this is?

I lost girls and I lost my men.

I'm sick of this little game.

You will not waste my chance.

I need you to be a smart man now and seep these next word

to your fucking tiny, little skull,

you fucking wait 'til I say!

[telephone beeps]

Is everything alright?

I found something.


I've wanted for a very long time.

-How long you look? -[sighs]


[sighs] ...many years.

What is this thing?

[Missy gasps]

A man.

A murderer.

And why you want him so bad?

He killed my parents.

How did he do it?

This had to happen.

I've killed too many.

[Lee] Their bodies were on the floor.

Blood everywhere.

They call him the "Message Man."

I thought he was going to kill me too.

It's my time now.

We'll see how he likes losing things.

Got a granddaughter.

And Lucy?

[gulps, sighs]

We're divorced.

Hey, 20 good years out of it.

All good things come to an end, right?


where does that leave us, friend?

Tell me about Lee.

He got wind you were here.

He's like a kid with a fucking toy now.

And how many?

Jesus Christ, it's fucking hot here.

What are you doing out here anyways?

This fucking place is a shithole.

It stinks, mosquitoes, bad water,

thousand fucking islands.

Wait, wait.


The other players.


We just met.

Third guy is a Jap.

Chinese or some shit like that.

He's been getting all the big gigs

over the last couple years.

Listen, this guy doesn't play by the same set of rules.

And he's here now.


And the pirates, the work for Lee?



I can walk away.


Completely off the grid.

I tried that.

What was it like being alone for so long?


I'll keep an eye on them for you.


Do they know about the family?


Something tells me I'm just the distraction now.

What's your granddaughter's name?


She's the most beautiful thing--

-I've become very close to. -[Yanto groans]

To give you my fullest attention.


Please, don't kill me.

This is not an exercise in torture.

Nor is it a lesson.

This is a combination

of all the bad choices that you've made

grouped into a single action.


[Yanto] Wait.

We must...

accept the consequences of our actions.

No matter how painful, how torturous,

how brutal or cruel they may seem.

Anything. Women, money, anything.

The work you did in Korea.

That group in Brazil.



So it's hard to believe that

someone with such a skill and passion

for brutality would just...

fade away.

[Lee] Seven years.

You of all people should understand

the necessity for such drastic measures,

if nothing but at least find some kind of, uh...

finality to our relationship.

I'm actually extremely grateful that

now I have the opportunity to show you

how much you affected my development as a child.

Put them down or the girl will die, very slowly.

Put your guns down now.

[Dewi sobs]

Put the guns down now!

Kill the girl.


Dewi? Hey.

You okay? They didn't hurt you?

Okay, come on.

I need you to wait here for me. Can you do that?

I want you to cover your ears and close your eyes again.

Good girl.

I shot him in the cerebellum.

Paralyzed, but all his sense and feelings

are still intact and responsive to pain.

You know, I've always considered myself

a highly motivated person.

Just imagine the, the passion

I must be feeling.

Can you imagine the passion, Lee?

Can you? Huh?


Give me back the fucking boy!

If you've hurt him,

I'll kill everyone in your family.

I'll kill all your friends,

I'll kill your business associates.

I will kill everything that you've ever loved.

Kill him.

Find and kill this fucking piece of shit!

We go to the club.
