I Saw The Devil
Dir. Ji-Woon Kim
With the exception of the action direction and fight choreography I can say, without a semblance of misgiving that this is one of the most pointless and despicable movies I've ever sat through. Brutal, mean spirited, nonsensical are all words that come to mind. I'm angry for having sat through this, but I kept thinking there would be some sort of payoff, some way to make it worth the effort. But this is one long, agonizing and intolerable mess that redeems itself in no way. I predict that this is going to have a massive following here on the boards, so I'm planting the flag and staking my claim that I hated it first. I'm the guy. This movie made me angry, can you tell?
If I gave F-'s this would be one. This is the movie to beat in 2011 for worst of the year. Well, at least I got it out of the way early.
