Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

sympathy for mr. vengeanceSympathy for Mr. Vengeance is the first movie in Chan-wook Park‘s “Revenge Trilogy”. I’ve seen the second film, Oldboy. In this film, Ryu is a deaf mute working to get his sister a kidney transplant. Things go wrong from the very beginning when Ryu finds out he isn’t an acceptable donor. If there is a lesson to be learned from this it is that eight wrongs don’t make a right… maybe it was nine. The movie looks great and the story is interesting, even switching protagonists mid film. I look forward to seeing the final film Lady Vengeance, which hasn’t been released in the US yet.
