    I really love revenge movies and there are many which are great. "I saw the devil" didn't shock me and I didn't felt nothing while watching. Watch: "Bedevilled" this is really shocking.
    "I saw the devil" is more a bloody action movie.
    But not a bad movie! Many people who love gore will enjoy it!

    Director Kim Jee-woon's astonishing story of a serial killer who picks the wrong man's fiancée to murder, is so extreme and intense that it had to be trimmed down in its native country before it was released to theaters. We lucky westerners get to see it in all its hair-raising, stomach-churning glory, and that's a wonderful thing.

    A terrific but uncompromising film that's definitely not for everyone.

    Although the sequences grow somewhat repetitive in spite of their vicious escalation, and some of the details challenge believability, I Saw the Devil is a spectacle of substantial merit.
