Jake Cole's rating of the film Vengeance

"What does revenge mean when you've forgotten everything?" The answer, of course, is nothing, but by the point anyone realizes that, vengeance has become such a ravenous parasite that it transfers hosts to continue to live. Motion is a key aspect of all of To's films, but here it seems to embody the termitic jumps of the drive for revenge among characters both villainous and heroic (for want of a better phrase).
