I SAW THE DEVIL ( NR)
MAGNET RELEASING (2010)
Starring: Byung-Hun Lee, Min-Sik Choi, Gook-Hwan Jeon, Ho-Jin Cheon, San-Ha Oh & more.
This film was nothing like I was expecting it to be, but I loved what it turned out to be. It's a straight
up Japanese revenge film. A secret agent is pushed to the edge when he seeks out revenge on a
psychotic serial killer who brutally murders his fiancée. The police are still on the search for him and
are baffled by the killings. The secret agent decides he is going to find the killer himself and capture
him instead of turning him in. He does eventually capture him and takes his revenge on the guy. This
is some really violent and bloody action filled Japanese madness. When the agent starts dishing out his
revenge he starts to realize that he is the one who is becoming sick and psychotic. Has he gone to far
or not far enough! This reminded me a little bit of the film LADY VENGEANCE, another great
Asian revenge flick!
