I Saw the Devil Reviews

  • Apr 13, 2021

    Not your typical South Korean drama. A cat and mouse chase between a killer and a man on his path of vengeance. Although it's not the most suspenseful movie, it is one of the more brutal and uncomfortable. Lots of violence and gore, too. Because of these factors, this movie is not for those that are weak against blood, body parts, cannibalism and multiple stabbing scenes. However, these violent and uncomfortable elements showed the bad side of vengeance, and the collateral damage of taking it too far. There were many devils within the movie, but the main protagonist might be one of them. Overall, a brutal thriller that made my hand gripped multiple times. 9/10

    It is too violent and gross to my taste.

    Best revenge flick ever. 7 days was great but this is the best . Some movies try the revenge plot but always end up in some moral code of conduct . It’s no holds barred here

    One of the better foreign horror movies ever made in my opinion, classic horror of blood and guts. Outstanding.

    Masterpiece on so many levels - valley girls/boys didn't like it, but who cares about them?

    Penso sia il film con la polizia più ritardata ed incompetente che io abbia mai visto, e si, ho visto sia Scuola di polizia che Una pallottola spuntata. Per fortuna questa banalità risulta essere solo una lieve convenienza narrativa, visto che il film concentra tutto il suo potenziale in altre tematiche. Nello specifico, presenta una violenta e depravata visione del tema della vendetta, con un tocco macabro e disturbante. Con la classica regia coreana molto dettagliata ed intelligente, il film è un'esperienza intensa ed emozionante.

    Remember to be ready for one of the most violent and intense movies you've ever seen before watching this uniquely gruesome movie. The movie is surely not for the faint hearted . I had to pause the rolling for some time and take some are after a lot of scenes on this film . And don't think that it gets any easier watching the film after the first time. On the contrary , after watching the movie for the second and third time, you feel it gets more intense because you can feel every bit of acting and the great believable cinematography along with the masterful directing of the movie. There maybe many Korean movies about revenge but this one surely stands out the way Old boy or sympathy for mr vengeance did back then.

    Rarely has a revenge film been so satisfying. More Psychological Thriller than Horror, although it leans heavily towards the latter. And yes, this film is a really tough watch at times, but to dumb down the violence and subject matter wouldn't justify either of the characters motives. Revenge is a dish served best cold and I'm asking for seconds. Outstanding film.
