Set A Monster To Catch A Monster...
Korean director Kim Ji-Woon has always been a film festival favorite and he has been one of Korea’s directors I follow religiously as with Park Chan-Wook (Oldboy), Kim Ki-Duk (The Isle), Hong Sang-Soo (Woman On The Beach), Lee Chang-Dong (Secret Sunshine) and Ryu Seung-Wan (Arahan).

Kim Ji-Woon does it again! A truly unrelenting violent film that has all the emotional and dramatic impact to portray a very human reaction....the need for vengeance.      Amazingly well-acted and definitely well-executed; Kim is joined by Choi Min-Sik and Lee Byung-Hun to bring forth a dark like coal tale of rage, anger and psychosis wrapped around an action- horror-thriller that may be one of the best Korean films of 2011!
