I saw the DEVIL

Nick VanMeter, blu-ray.com
8 September 2013
  • Excerpt: This is such an amazing movie, how far would you go to get revenge? I think this movie has great story, character build up and action and it is so deep. Makes you think is Lee looking at the devil that killed his wife or is he the devil now?

Very cool

Evil, blu-ray.com
15 August 2013
  • Excerpt: This movie is very violent and gory but it's also very very well done. I had a few issues with the plot at some points (what felt like unrealistic scenes to me) but that didn't really take away from my overall enjoyment of the film. There are lots of unique and memorable scenes.

A leader in its genre

Blu Lemmy, blu-ray.com
15 May 2012
  • Excerpt: This film is alot of things, long, gory, violent and shocking, whats not to like? It comes in at a healthy 2+ hours, which does not seem too long when you watching it, the way the story unfolds between the two main pretagonists is outstanding, given the recent success of Korean cinema and hollywoods...

I Saw Jee-woon Kim

AnimeAnt, blu-ray.com
6 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I've read some horrible reviews on IMDB, too long, too violent, stupid story? but then again I read bad reviews for his 2005 effort "A Bittersweet Life". Possible the best film of 2005. Maybe some viewers just don't get it. I Saw the Devil is violent and does run 144 odd min, but is worth every min.

Wow! Yuck!! Wow!

ctyank, blu-ray.com
4 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The other reviews are right on. I just want to add that the collection of dismembered body parts and general gruesomeness are really over the top. The writing, acting, story and theme are all riviting and have the makings of a classic... but the gore/violence level makes this more of a niche film.

Kim Jee-Woon take on the asian "revenge" genre.

alexend, blu-ray.com
8 September 2011
  • Excerpt: A bit too rough I thought, but a really well made movie. My least favorite from Kim Jee-Woon, mostly because this is a revenge movie and that I've seen enough of those already. If I had to chose though, I would prefer Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance in that genre.

Twisted...Violent...Horrific Fun

Sopranogl, blu-ray.com
14 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Man...those Koreans can make great thrillers! I saw "The Man From Nowhere" and I've been hooked ever since. As others have mentioned, "I Saw the Devil" is a mix of "Silence of the Lambs" and "No Country For Old Men" (and a few others to boot).

"A True Revenge"

greekak229, blu-ray.com
12 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Relentless, absorbing, and absolutely fascinating. A film that to me, will likely go down as a crime masterpiece. One of the more beautifully filmed Korean pictures I have seen in some time. Don't let the violence stray you away from seeing this epic film. The transfer from Magnolia is stunning.

Not for the squeamish

K i r a, blu-ray.com
11 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I've been going crazy with watching a bunch of foreign movies lately, after having watched the animated 'Summer Wars', to a not-as-violent revenge thriller 'The Man From Nowhere'. So naturally, I came across this movie and immediately checked it out as soon as it came in.
