Of Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy, this is my least favorite entry. The film is full of the expected twists and turns that are common in his films, but somehow this one didn't have the dark, gritty realism of the first two installments. Part of the issue is that much of the film is overly stylized and features slightly surreal visual flares that give it a more fantastical quality making it a little hard to discern what is reality, what is memory, and what is dream. Another issue, although …

I felt like the entire first hour of this was skippable, as it was a pastiche of all kinds of genre conventions/Park trying to be Quentin Tarantino making "Kill Bill." But it gets interesting once she's caught the guy - the last 45 minutes or so are quite fascinating.

      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".

Fans of the franchise will undoubtedly …

The last of the "Vengeance Trilogy" is also the last for me as well, I have finally seen all three. Lady Vengeance is definitely not the best of the three but it was still one sick flick. Let's set it off, the film starts out just a little slow and a little weird and even more weird than the other two. Lee Geum-ja who was wrongly put in prison for murder is finally getting out. While inside she basically goes from a sweet and innocent girl to a rather cold and vengeful nutcase. Though she has developed …

This film is really good. Park Chanwook made the perfect conclusion to a trilogy with Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. The three films work off each other beautifully, and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is far from a disappointment.The acting is top-notch, with cameos from Park Chanwook's first two films intermingling with new talent. The directing is superb, not quite eclipsing Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance or Oldboy but coming quite close. Park's directing style is solid and distinctive; he builds off earlier …
