Movie: I Saw the Devil (2010)

Evil lives inside.

I Saw the Devil (2010) is a South Korean crime-and-revenge thriller.

Synopsis from IMDb: Kyung-chul (Choi Min-sik) is a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. He has committed infernal serial murders in diabolic ways that one cannot even imagine and his victims range from young women to even children. The police have chased him for a long time, but were unable to catch him.

One day, Joo-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief becomes his prey and is found dead in a horrific state. Her fiance Soo-hyun (Lee Byung-hun), a top secret agent, decides to track down the murderer himself. He promises himself that he will do everything in his power to take bloody vengeance against the killer, even if it means that he must become a monster himself to get this monstrous and inhumane killer.

This disturbing and grisly movie is NOT for the fainthearted and those with a sensitive soul. The brutal torture and murder scenes are so graphic that I flinch every time they are shown. Words fail me because I'm still in shock. Your could only get this kind of super hardcore crime-and-revenge thriller by South Korean directors.

Here are a couple of comments from the Internet that will do the movie its justice:

- Blood sprays, flies, drips, gushes - every verb or way blood can possibly flow out of the human body occurs over the course of the film. One sequence involving a brutal double murder as the camera swoops around the scene in a circle is simply magnificent to watch, both to see how much blood is spilled and for how wicked and incredible a shot it is.

- Choi Min-sik gives a performance that is the stuff of legend. He brings out the monster in Kyung-chul all too easily, and his riveting performance is unmissable. The transformation into this disgusting, psychopathic creature is nothing short of amazing. He chews up scenery at every turn, and is magnetic on screen. Nothing even comes close to equaling the power, intensity and dare I say authenticity he puts into this character. He is the stuff of nightmares.

- Repugnant content, grislier than the ugliest torture porn, ought to have made the film unwatchable, but it doesn't, simply because Kim's (director) pic is so beautifully filmed, carefully structured and viscerally engaging.

*gulps*

You'll never forget this movie, especially Choi Min-sik's monstrous character. Choi's Kyung-chul is like Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal Lecter. You can never forget them. Never.
