I watch this movie a few days ago. I thought it was amazing!! I love a good revenge movie~! (And trust me...after seeing what this villain does...you'll want to jump in the movie and kill him yourself!) The action scenes are GREAT!! Especially towards the end...and it had what many would call a "bow-tie" ending. So, If you like Koreans, action, revenge, a little mystery & suspense....WATCH THIS. But I warn you...The read more only reason I couldn't give this movie a 10/10 is because the graphics are "Saw" level and made my stomach turn...I had to look away a few times...soooo i guess you'll have to like gory movies as well...LOL

This is definitely not for the weak hearted. It is absolutely horrifying at certain scenes where I just had to get away for a bit and breath. The storyline is gripping and the acting is just great. In fact it was so great that I detested the bad character! This is not suitable for everyone. It has sexually explicit scenes and nudity, much to my surprise. Can't say I didn't see it read more coming though. So if you're set on watching this movie then be ready, you're in for a bumpy ride.

both films are bloody revenge thrillers with harsh and horrific scenes.

Another revenge movie but this time about a father who will go to any length to avenge his daughter. While I Saw The Devil is rage induced and has your adrenaline pumping throughout, Broken is rage induced but more heart wrenching. Grab a box of tissues and a cup of tea rather than popcorn for this one.

    Too graphic for me. I was only 30 minutes in and they could have done without a few things to make the movie more interesting, unless you have a gore fetish. I'm fine with gore, as long as it isn't tacky or forced.

    I agree with SayItAintSoJoe. I too enjoyed the artistic style of the Vengeance Trilogy more. But Choi Min Sik is brilliant in all his performances, including this one, so it's always a joy to see him.

    I was told that I Saw The Devil was better than Oldboy, but I thought Oldboy was better. I Saw The Devil was good, but I like the artistic style of Oldboy a lot better. I enjoyed the Revenge series a lot more.
