Product Description


Korean director Kim Ji-woon first garnered a reputation as an ace assimilator of outside styles, most notably for the ickily Freudian J-horror thriller A Tale of Two Sisters and the monumentally goofy spaghetti Western pastiche The Good, the Bad, the Weird. I Saw the Devil finds the filmmaker moving towards a style much closer to home--namely the Korean revenge thriller, best typified by movies such as Oldboy, Memories of Murder, and Nowhere to Hide--with results that vary between masterfully staged and punishingly gross. Beginning with an impeccably uneasy snowbound abduction scene, the story follows a dashing secret agent (Byung-hun Lee) sworn to track down the murderer of his pregnant fiancée. Upon finding the maniac (Oldboy's majestically disheveled Min-sik Choi), he implants him with a tracking device and proceeds to follow him across the country, swooping in to torture him at random intervals. Clocking in at 144 minutes, Ji-woon's film clearly believes in a more-is-more policy, with ideas about the futility of revenge and the dangers of staring into the abyss taken to their graphic extremes. Viewers with strong constitutions will find much to chew on. Anyone else, however, should be prepared to dive behind the couch at a moment's notice. --Andrew Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice and Bloody but Also Intelligent... Sept. 26 2011
By Sorpse
definatly at the top of my favorite films of 2011 list thus far. Right up there with hobo with a shotgun. This film however takes a more mature, intelligent aproach to making a gory film. Dont take that wrong however there is much more to this movie than blood and guts. Its basically a cat and mouse game between a sadistic serial killer and the widow of one of his victims. The cat however isnt the serial killer. You get to cheer for the good guy the whole time and although his mistakes are apparent you dont really think that the consequences would end up being so ruthless. Lots of emotions are pulled and its a thrill ride the whole way through. This is definatly the work of an experienced director and i'd recommend this movie to almost anyone. Also watch for an awesomely awkward scene between the serial killer and a cannibal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling, brutal, and brilliant June 23 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I first saw 'I Saw the Devil' at TIFF '10 and was blown away. As a huge fan of 'A Bittersweet Life', Kim Jee-Woon's previous collaboration with Lee Byung-Hun, and actor Min-sik Choi, I was very excited to see this film. We were warned prior to the screening that this film is brutal and that was no lie. There is some graphic violence in this film. Totally cringe-worthy things are depicted. But unlike modern horror films and torture-porn, all of the violence serves a purpose. It's a revenge tale, an action film, and the story of losing one's self in vengeance. The acting is stupendous, featuring stand-out performances from the two leads. I loved this film so much. I laughed, I squirmed, I lost myself in the story. Definitely pick this Blu-ray up. It may be lacking the wealth of bonus features we're used to but the quality of the filmmaking makes up for it.
