Sympathy for Lady Vengeance ★★★★

Another film in the trilogy that scores higher second time around because...

1. I watched them in the correct order!
2. I stopped comparing it to Oldboy and judged it based on its own merits!

A slow burn revenge film with a big pay off that was emotionally gut wrenching!

While the film is quite violent and bloody, Chan-wook Park used great restraint in one major scene that worked in his favor knowing full well imagination can often times be far worse than any imagery produced on-screen!

A truly remarkable conclusion to the Vengeance Trilogy!

FYI - This is NOT a true trilogy... it only became a trilogy because international critics linked them together due to them sharing the same themes!
