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.Read more ›
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.
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....

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.Read more ›

The is the last of a trilogy of films. I should warn you that Korean films are getting extremely graphic in the violence and this one is no exception. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Jon96789
