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

Part of a Vengeance Trilogy of which the more well-renowned Oldboy belongs to. IMO, of the trio, I find that Sympathy For Lady V to more strongly emphasize director Park Chan-wook's "poetic" use of visuals (a phrase you'll probably be able to understand better once you watch it) with a story that flows much smoother into it's gritty climax that, for my money, is richly laden with an equal balance ... read more

“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

"I was typing how I felt about this movie but before I finished it, I noticed that it was freaking long so I just decided to make a short review of the movie (my first review, I'm sorry if it is not that good). You can check the review here. Favorite Character: Accomplice 1 and Accomplice 2 (played by the 2 main actors in Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance)"

"Re-watch - July 31st jaytoast's thoughts phillydude's thoughts I first watched Sympathy for Lady Vengeance a few years ago & struggled with it. I kept falling asleep at the time, and given how much of it was familiar to me on my second viewing I missed even more of it than I'd thought. This time it was also putting me to sleep, but I did a far better job of staying awake & not missing anything. Probably I just shouldn't watch this film late at night haha. Anyway, I thought the film was Amazin"

"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
