Park Chan-wook Coreea de Sud, 2002

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

This was a let down. The big problem here is the script is wildly uneven and the pacing is plodding. It's clear Park wanted to make a film of slow simmering suspense, but it just sort of plods along without much direction. Compared to the creative energy unleashed in Oldboy this is average at best. I hope Lady Vengeance doesn't fall short either.
