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 recent resurgence in remakes it is only a matter of time before this gets the treatment.

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. Brilliantly acted and the directing awesome as usual. I now realize I own 6 of Jee-woon Kim films and every year I await news of his next project.

Cracking Korean Killer Flick!

  • Conclusion: A local magazine where I live was touting this as the new movie from Chan Wook Park. Wrong. It does, however, feature the lead from Old Boy. I Saw The Devil really is a cracking movie. Graphic and gripping, it twists and turns after a fairly standard initial 30 mins or so. I would put this film alongside any of the top Korean genre flicks. Blu-ray is excellent. Picture 10, audio 9. Enjoy!!

Cold Blooded

stuartfear, play.com
21 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Revenge is a dish best served cold, and as the Korean's have proved once again there's only one place to witness such a dish and that isn't Hollywood! Within minutes you're already into the story, and despite knowing who the killer is, there's still nothing but tension and suspense throughout this rollercoaster ride. The action is brutal and gore-filled but feels within the realms of reality, enough to make you see "The Devil" inside.
