I don't know, what's with the Korean people about vengeance, but they are damn good at it. At the beginning of the movie I was expecting 'who is the murderer' kind of a thriller. However it goes deeper than that. The motive of the crimes is so obvious, yet the method is unique. Sure there are some distractions like the annoying detective who is angry with everything. Nonetheless the movie is quite good at distracting the viewer and surprising them in the end. It is definitely worth watching. But be warned, you shouldn't be expecting some Old Boy here. Korean movies are not a genre by themselves, so don't be fool enough to compare them with each other just because they are Korean.
