  2. ig_____or's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    I mostly liked it... but didn't understand some parts... and was bored by others. It will probably improve on a second watch.

  3. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    MORE YELLING THAN TELLING. Graphic manga style & successive short shots, PARK, using clichés & gesticulations (& also slowness), tells this neurotic & PRETENTIOUS melodrama of organ trafficking & crime. === PLUS DE CRIS QUE DE DITS. Dans un style manga graphique avec courts plans successifs, PARK, à force clichés & gesticulations (& aussi lenteurs) raconte ce mélo névrosé & PRETENTIEUX de trafic d'organes & de crime.

  4. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Completely methodical and cold, there's a voyeuristic feel to the whole thing that sometimes made my blood boil with unease, as if you're a duct taped witness to a sadistic ordeal where every single major player will have their blood and guts spilled because of their incompetence for methodical violence. Chan-wook's usual sense of sardonic humor is also very much present throughout.

  5. wiwitaek's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Okay, I get it. A series of down endings, right? But half of the movie should be cut off. He definitely underestimated his audiences.

  6. gaussian's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

  7. meepy's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    A horrific revenge cycle that ends in a bloodbath. A commentary on capitalisim & poverty. A masterpiece in the film world.

  8. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Thriller drama that follow two characters that both have their own damaged emotional core and are forced to consider if vengeance is a good path to walk. Do anyone really walks away clean after killing someone? It is a revenge movie that is enormously refreshing. High quality acting, direction and cinematography make the film a gripping one even with it's typical Asian flavor of sleazy perverted dark humor.

  9. Karina O.'s rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Too slow paced for my liking, but I get the running gag. Everyone got what they deserved, except for the little girl.

  10. Anca.'s rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Woke up with a Thirst for Mr. Park Chan-Wook.

  11. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Il primo capitolo della trilogia della Vendetta è una cupa e sanguinolenta caduta libera nella spirale del castigo e del senso di colpa. Visivamente geniale, ti trascina verso l'empatia per i protagonisti, per poi fartene pentire con un colpo allo stomaco. Le spade di Damocle che Park è solito far pendere sulla testa dei suoi protagonisti cadono tutte al momento giusto, con una durezza glaciale. Potente.

  12. weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    3.7 the way I recall (been a few years) a thriller driving heavily on a drive reminescent of the brothers Coen - coincidences setting the stages & turning the actors into pawns of their undoing.

  13. Jason's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Firstly: it has one of the greatest titles in the history of cinema. Secondly: for something that is nominally genre cinema, it is designed, fussed over, and ultimately built floor-to-ceiling like a serious-as-fuck art movie. And it is serious. Though deserving, I guess, of its hallowed fanboy status, the subject of the thing (and its dramatic scale) compare easily to Sophocles and Shakespeare.

  14. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    Dark, merciless, unforgiving. A thoroughly unpleasant experience.
