Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A droll Nietzschean fable that's fully aware of its lapses into absurdity.
Fresh: Somewhere in all the blood (sickening realism is a selling point), a question is posed: When does the one fighting a monster become a monster himself?
Fresh: Even at its most chaotic, the film never loses sight of the human toll of the increasingly over-the-top events it portrays.
Rotten: Never good with nuance, Kim is a beast with disarming imagery (like the severed head that turns face-up in a river current) but has few resonating ideas, leaving the domino-tumble of brutality to become its own tiresome spectacle.
A masterpiece if you know how to handle this subject. This is by far the best revenge movie that I have seen in a long time. The guy who played the killer had shades of Barden from no country for old men and he nailed it!! It's brutal, honest, intelligent, gripping and all the good things that are bad..
Make no mistake this is tough movie and may not be for everyone..
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie that moved me like this one. An emotional rollercoaster ride that will make you question your own morality.
