The most perfect and intricate depiction of revenge in a film I’ve seen yet. Park manages to reconstruct the typical revenge plot and packs in twists and grit.

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." Excellent movie!

Absolutely brutal. A gut-wrenching exploration of the horrors and consequences of seeking revenge.
