I've watched this film twice so far and in my opinion it's one of the best thrillers I've seen to date from Asia, whilst not being as good as the likes of 'Infernal affairs' or 'Chaser' I still rate this highly all the same.
The bad guy is very good and totally believable in the role, as are the couple who he decides to prey on and generally make their lives a misery, whilst slowly driving them mad with every psychological/physical turn.
There's a consistently good atmosphere in the film which is at times brutal to a pretty high degree.
The film is about the right length, overall a very good watch, it probably won't blow you away, but it's much better than most thrillers over the past 5-10 years or so, well worth checking out.
