Ryu's boss, Park, has just laid him off, and in order to afford the transplant, Ryu and his girlfriend develop a plan to kidnap Park's daughter.

Earlier this year, I saw ‘Lady Vengeance’ but even though I did like it, I thought it was slightly underwhelming but since I really loved ‘Oldboy’, I was really eager to complete Chan-wook Park’s revenge trilogy. On top of that, I did watch the first half of this movie at least 6 years ago and I can’t believe it took me so long to finally see the whole damned thing. Well, I really like... read more

I know that Oldboy is the most popular of this series, but I think SFMV was the best movie out of the bunch that properly showed how futile and hopeless revenge can be. Oldboy is still my favorite movie, but this movie is still a masterpiece...beautifully directed as well.

“(Blu) Park , in his firts 'vengenace' film, is linnear but as artificial and obscure as after. The sister and the girlfirnd of hot deaf and mute greenhaired Ryu are lookalije so you can suffer a confusion that makes everything more obscure; but the secuences in the river and Ryu taing his dead girlfriend hand....” read more

"31.8. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jokin aika sitten muistin, etten jostain syystä saanut aikaiseksi katsottua kolmatta osaa, kun oli tarkoitus uusintkatsella Kostotrilogia, mutta suunnitellusti suht lähekkäin. Tästä olikin kymmenen vuotta, joten ei tuntunut mielekkäältä enää katsoa yksinään kolmatta osaa. Samalla hyvä syy formaatin päivitykselle. Itse asiassa vähän yllätyin, kuinka en avausosasta vieläkään löydä sijaa moitteelle. Ilmaisutyyli pitkillä otoilla ja hiljaisella"

"Re-watch - May 31st OK...so I had several films still left that I needed to watch before they left, and the majority of them were films I hadn't seen before. However, my rating for this film was previously a 4/10, and given my love for Chan-wook Park I felt I should give it another chance rather than skip it because I had a feeling my rating was wrong. If I recall correctly, the first time I watched it I could barely stay awake & I found at least one aspect especially ludicrous, which led to th"

"Koska en tiedä mistään mitään ja olen vissiin muutenkin aika vittumainen tyyppi, niin päätin katsoa krapulassa "keskinkertaista" korealaista. Nimimerkki kurkkuharja soitti minulle tämän kokemuksen aikana. Minulle jäi vähän epäselväksi, että kantaako hän kaunaa jostain menneestä minulle?"
