I Saw the Devil - Movie Review

Movie:  I Saw the Devil (2010) [Akmareul boatda (original title)]
Rating: R
Crime, Drama, Horror, Thiller




I am going to try to include trailers for the movies and games I review. Do you think its a good idea? Also, should I include more than one trailer if its different?




This was a very good movie, a solid 8, maybe even a 8.5 or a 9 if I had a subbed version of the movie. As I did not I missed out on a few key details; so if you decide to see this movie try and find a subbed version if you don't speak Korean.


The story-line for the movie is simple: A cop hunts down a serial killer whose victim was the cop's wife. What makes this movie special from other movies is the way he treats the killer once he finds him. This part is where understanding the dialog comes in handy and since I didn't have a subbed version of the movie and I don't understand Korean, I missed out.


If you like movies with gore in it than you won't be disappointed. If you get queasy easily than you don't have to fear either because gore scenes don't happen too often within the movie.


In conclusion: Go watch it. Make sure you either understand Korean or have a subbed version. Dubbed is ok too, but if you are a real movie fan like me than you'd want to hear the original dialog even if you don't understand it. Don't watch this movie during a date unless you know she or he likes this kinda thing.

  14. My parents (!) saw this recently and recommended it to me but I haven't seen it yet. Speaking of Korean movies, though, I just watched Oldboy for the 10 millionth time.

  15. Reminds me when I was little, when I couldn't understand english, yet I still watched the movies without subtitles.

    Koreans seem to have some good movies. I recently watched 'The Man from Nowhere'. It's quite a good movie. I'll probably watch this one too. Thanks for share.

  25. I saw this movie subbed and I didn't really enjoy it that much. They just don't make psychological thrillers as they did back in the past.

  26. Sounds like it could be a goer. I would defs have to get the subbed version though, dubs annoy me.
