Good grief it's intense,
This review is from: I Saw the Devil (Amazon Video)
Fans of Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Sympathy for Mr Vengeance and their ilk should check this out. It's a brutal, uncompromising revenge thriller in a similar vein to those films rather than the Chuck Norris style actioner we might have expected in days gone by.
Our "hero" is hunting down a serial killer following the death of his pregnant fiance at the hands of the aforementioned monster. Once he finds him though things get really nasty, he decides to take out his revenge in a more novel fashion. "Catching and releasing, catching and releasing" as one character puts it. However this choice leads to SERIOUS consequences for others and shows that perhaps there are no heroes in this film after all.
Brilliantly acted and stylishly directed this comes recommended, although not for the faint of heart.
