Product Description

Product Description

Kim Jee-Woon directs this brutally visceral Korean revenge thriller. When his pregnant fiancee becomes the latest victim of maniacal serial killer Kyung-chul (Min-sik Choi), secret agent Dae-hoon (Byung-hun Lee) takes the law into his own hands and sets out on a merciless, bloodthirsty mission to make Kyung-chul's existence a living hell.

Synopsis

“The best serial killer film since Se7en"--Arrow In The Head

A psychotic serial killer is on the loose, committing some of the most diabolical crimes the police have ever witnessed. No one is safe as the body count rises and the killer continues his evil odyssey of sadistic butchery. But when the fiancée of an elite special agent becomes one of his victims, a personal investigation becomes a merciless and brutal game of vengeance. As one violent encounter leads to another, it’s a game where the hunter becomes as unhinged as the hunted.

Directed by one of Korea’s most notorious and revered directors Kim Ji-Woon (A Tale Of Two Sisters), I Saw The Devil is as action packed and thrilling as it is extremely dark and disturbing. Reuniting the director with actor Lee Byung-Hun (A Bittersweet Life, Hero, The Good, The Bad And The Weird) it also stars Asian cinema legend Choi Min-Sik (Oldboy).

The story is this. Dae-hoon (played superbly by Byung-hun Lee) is a secret agent whose fiance is brutally murdered and he sets out to find the killer himself. He does so fairly easily. Only instead of killing him, he beats him half to death before making the semi concious killer swallow a tracking device. He then stalks him and exacts his revenge slowly and increasingly more violently. This is about as far from a hollywood slasherfest as you can get. There are no bikini clad girls running about doing stupid things waiting to be killed. This has the type of brutal realism that will make you feel uncomfortable, the type you would expect from a Korean revenge thriller.

What starts out as two totally opposite characters soon blurs the line somewhat as Dae-hoon's actions often lead others into harm as a result of his quest for revenge. His mind has clearly gone a bit due to the pain he is going through and in some scenes you can see how emotionally broke down he has become..However theres no mistaking who the devil is. Min-sik Choi (the lead and star of OldBoy) was brilliant in OldBoy but here he's even better. I dont know if there has ever been a more convincing portrayal of a truly evil, twisted, disgusting, psychopathic rapist killer. Often his facial expressions say more than words ever could. You will probably enjoy every moment of his suffering at the hands of Dae-hoon... The Vengeance Trilogy is tame in comparison.

The acting in particular of the two leads is astounding. The story is great with a few excellent plot twists just when you think one of the characters has the upper hand. There are some amazing scenes, one of the best is a double death that I wont spoil but you will know it when you see it. It's brilliantly done. There are plenty of other stand out moments.

This would of been one of my favourite films of all time if we wouldn't have had the usual "moral battle" that plagues most revenge movies....I mean, the guy killed your wife and taunts you about it...rip out his insides and feed them to him and ENJOY DOING IT. THERE IS NO MORAL BATTLE.

Best part of film was second time he catches the scum and severs his achilles tendon, that was absolutely exquisite and wonderful...but went downhill after that with all the "inner turmoil" and pleading from his in-laws to stop...pathetic and annoying. Especially since the story is so damn good and it promises you so much when he tells him that "it's just beginning" after the second beat-down.

Amazingly well made and acted, but not enough punishment for my liking and when he does finally catch up with him at the end, he kills him in such a quick and pathetic way that there is no pay-off or feeling of satisfaction that he has suffered or been mentally broken down, which the story promised.

Massive let-down for me, impeccably well made, no doubt, but doesn't come close to the remake of "I Spit On Your Grave" in terms of satisfactory deaths of scum-bags.

This is a particularly gritty movie. Most definitely not for the feint hearted, it is all about a nasty serial killer being pursued by a bitter detective after revenge following his fiancé's death at the killer's hands. The murders are portrayed graphically (the Korean's don't hold back) and the suspense is tangible throughout as he stalks his victims.
The last half of the movie moves the story in another direction of killing, but equally watchable. The end unforgettable!
I count myself as being somewhat hardened to gore and threat. This rates highly in my estimation as I still found it edge of the seat stuff.
Don't watch it if you are of a delicate disposition. You won't like it. Not at all.

I won't repeat what has already been said by reviewers who know their stuff.
I'll sum up, fantastic psychopath goes on a bender while others try to stop him.
Psychopathy has been done to death in films, but this one is a creative beauty, as is the quest to stop him.
Obviously being an extreme Asian its expectantly brutal and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Brilliant and has rightly reached cult status, not to mention the fantastic taxi scene.

A stunning intorduction into Korean cinema. Absolutely no way a number of the scenes in this film would be shown on UK cinema screen. Visceral, gripping, bold and unflinching. Not for the faint hearted. Watch it immediately

I had been leaving to watch this as my expectations were high and they are usually destroyed with a lot of films. However, this really is a fantastic film, I would be happy to say its almost as good as frontiers or Inside, although from different worlds! I loved the soundtrack, the violence and overall story behind it. At times a little tough to watch and I found myself gritting my teeth with the realism of the film. I always know if it has been a great film as I don't notice the subtitles, which I didn't at all with this. It was a long film but felt short as it was that good. I would love to her from anyone that has any other recommendations along the lines of these films as I have exhausted all the great murky and violent films I know of!
