5.0 out of 5 stars pARK cHAN wOOK's LaDY vENGEANCE June 17, 2006
By DA MAN
Format:DVD
This is the last installment of Park Chan Wook's theme linked Vengeance trilogy - the first being Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and then OLdbOY....

Synopsis -

Geum-ja (Lee Young-ae), in her teen years is thrust into the spotlight when she is arrested and charged for the abduction and murder of a six year old boy, a crime she did not commit. The killer is Mr Baek (Old Boy's Choi Min-sik) framed her. While in jail, she gets allies to her cause for revenge and upon her release she takes her time to play out her fantasy of vengeance and the movie takes us through that journey as the director blends in a pespective of vengeance that is rather different from the last 2 films.

Review -

For fans of style , you will get your appetites filled as they are beautiful sets are littered all throughout the film. The violence is built up till the end when it erupts on screen. If you are a fan of OLdbOY, and that's the reason you are gonnna catch it; my suggestion is, do not expect an OLdbOY sequel or anything that resembles OLdbOY, as you will be sorely disappointed... Enter this film with the impression that is a whole new film experience and you will enjoy it......But mind you, this is a wonderful effort and a fantastic conclusion to the revenge trilogy....

The DVD -

2:35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen

Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 Surround tracks

English and Spanish subtitles

Theatrical trailer, and some preview trailers

The rest of the extras are still not released.... I will update them when i recieve them..

But it's been confirmed that the fade to black version of Lady Vengeance(which appears in the Korean Special edition) is not available here.

I would give this more stars if I could, I've made a list of "great movies" here on Amazon and when I see something I love I add it to my list, After this review this movie will be added, I believe I have it in some pretty amazing company.

Director Park Chan-Wook's conclusion to his vengeance trilogy is an amazing film. Out of the trilogy I have seen Oldboy (Three-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition), which i liked very much, i found this to be superior in every way, a masterpiece.

I will not go into any detail or spoil anything this movie is a rare treat and I wouldn't want to spoil any minute so I will give you the basic premises a beautiful woman Geum-ja Lee played perfectly by Yeong-ae Lee is wrongly imprisoned at the age of 18 for 13 years, so begins her plan of 13 years for revenge on the real criminal.

I believe this movie is all about choices and what is right and wrong. Are gods laws right? Are mans laws right? Lady Vengeance let's you analyze and decide that for yourself well after the credits roll.

On the cover it says "The best revenge thriller since Kill Bill." Kill bill was very good and entertaining movie, this movie goes deeper like all great movies it stays with you, you experience this film, it seeps into your subconscious, becomes one of your memories. I also enjoyed the Kill Bill's and as a drama and a thriller i believe it is better than both of them combined, however Kill Bill is superior on the action side of things.

This film is something you could debate and analyze it has deep meanings but it is also just a great story which keeps you guessing and at times can shock you while others make you laugh.

LADY VENGEANCE (aka. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) is the third installment in Park Chan-Wook's "vengeance" trilogy, among of which my favorite is the terrific "Oldboy" and the first film ""Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance". These three films have different plotlines and characters; the only thing that ties them together is their similar themes about suffering, revenge and redemption (or the goal for redemption). Fans of the franchise will undoubtedly compare this to "Oldboy" since it cemented Park Chan-Wook's status as a frontrunner of Korean cinema and catapulted him to international stardom beside Kim Ki-Duk and Hong Sang-Soo. One thing with Oldboy and Lady Vengeance (in my opinion are the two best ones of the series); Oldboy is like a shot of the finest Tequila and Lady Vengeance is similar to a shot of the smoothest cognac. Oldboy is scorching fire while Lady Vengeance is ice cold.

Plot synopsis derived from DVD back cover:
After being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and murdering a young child, a beautiful young woman (Lee Young-ae) is imprisoned for 13 years and forced to give up her own daughter. While in prison, she gains the respect and loyalty of her fellow cellmates. While in prison, she plots her vendetta on the man responsible for her imprisonment. A man called Baek (Oldboy's Choi Min-Sik). Upon her release she sets in motion an elaborate plan of retribution, but what she discovers is a truth so horrifying, even revenge doesn't seem punishment enough...

Park Chan-Wook has the skill to shock and disturb audiences and Korean critics alike with his style and themes, but he doesn't resort to such exploitative lengths as most Japanese film-makers.
