Park has a strong visual style and a near-surrealistic noir touch, but unraveling the mystery scarcely repays sitting through his relentless rounds of gut-wrenching violence.
"relentless rounds of gut-wrenching violence."? How can you possibly call yourself a critic if you can't handle what amount of violence is in this movie? The way he was transformed from a mindless drunken idiot, to a relentless revenge-seeking man, there is only one way to show just how it is, which is why it made this movie that powerful. And if you cant handle seeing him eat a live octopus, you have much, much, much more to see on this earth.

Sitar Hero, couldn't of said it better myself. This movies is has very light violence in it. All i recall is him beating the crap out of lots of people, wrenching teeth out, cutting his own tounge off and the girl being stripped. (I haven't included the squid being eaten alive becuase it's supposed to be that barbaric to emphasize what state he is in) Now compare these things to scenes from movies such as 'Hostel' and 'Saw'. They are nothing. So quit vhining.

The only thing odd about the octopus scene is that it isn't sliced first
