So finally I completed Chan Wook Park's revenge trilogy after watching this. I really love the first two (especially Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) so I will be bluntly honest with this one when I say that this is not as good as first two movies. I was always hesitant on watching this one because I thought that Yeong-ae Lee can't pull it off (because I am used to seeing her as an abused maid or whate... read more

Another superlative effort from Chan-wook Park. As a big fan of Oldboy I was desperate to see this film, though to be totally honest, I didn't expect it to live up to my high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised however.

An intriguing storyline which unravels itself at an almost painstaking pace and culminates in an uneasy and gory finale. The trademark 'stylised' violence is s... read more

The final installment of director Chan Wook Park's revenge trilogy (preceded by Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Oldboy) chronicles the efforts of Lee Geum-ja (Yeong-ae Lee) -- known to her cellmates as "the kind Ms. Geum-ja" -- to track down the man who betrayed her. Taking the rap for her accomplice and incarcerated for 13 long years, she plots an elaborate retribution with help from her fellow inmates.

“So finally I completed Chan Wook Park's revenge trilogy after watching this. I really love the first two (especially Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) so I will be bluntly honest with this one when I say that this is not as good as first two movies. I was always hesitant on watching this one because I thought that Yeong-ae Lee can't pull it off (because I am used to seeing her as an abused maid or whatever she was in the TV series in Jewel in the Palace, which my family loved to watch everyday when it was shown in our country) but I was wrong, she did an amazing job. She was really terrific, so fierce with her red mascara, high heels and that cool North Korean gun.

But what I hated in this movie is its inconsistencies, she shot two guys(the accomplices of Mr. Baek), the first got a bi” read more

"Lady Vengeance" (2005)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

After her release from prison for the kidnapping and murder of a young boy, Lee Geum-ja begins to orchestrate her plan for revenge against the real culprit – while reuniting with her estranged daughter.

Just to let you know, this review will contain a spoiler for the climax.

I'll probably get some flak for this, but I think this is easily the weakest of the Vengeance Trilogy.

For one thing, while Sympathy for Mr Vengeance and Oldboy were presented relatively straightforward, I feel as if this one is trying way too hard to be artsy, with its nonlinear narrative structure and philosophical moments.

I really didn't like how the daughter subplot was handled. There was great potential for the mother and daughter to develop th” read more

A good movie

“Since I'm a huge fan of 'Oldboy', it is rather surprising that it took me so long to see another movie directed by Chan-wook Park. I guess, I never really had the opportunity (I did see the first half of 'Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance' a very long time ago). Anyway, I came across this dvd and I thought it was highly time to finally make up for those lost years. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good but I didn't really blow me away like 'Oldboy'. The point is that the directing was really good, the acting as well but I thought that the plot was pretty messy and confusing. Basically, there was some constant back and forth between past and present and I really had a hard time following what was going on, especially in the first half and who was who. Furthermore, the tone was really different.” read more
