For all the fans with a gourmet taste in movies, for this weekend I present to you a master piece of Korea, I Saw The Devil (2010). Asian movies as you know, are quite distinct from the usual western type, so I believe that this will more than satisfy your demand for a good entertainment. Whatever I say here, won’t be even close than the real deal so I will only say – watch it! This is a action, crime, drama, with scenes of blood and gore.
I Saw The Devil (2010) is a shockingly violent and stunningly accomplished tale of murder and revenge from Korean genre master Kim Jee-woon. Kyung-chul, a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. The embodiment of pure evil, he has committed horrifying and senselessly cruel serial murders on defenseless victims, successfully eluding capture by the police. On a freezing, snowy night, his latest victim is the beautiful Ju-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief and pregnant fiancée of elite special agent Soo-hyun. Obsessed with revenge, Soo-hyun decides to track down the murderer, even if doing so means becoming a monster himself. And when he finds Kyung-chul, turning him in to the authorities is the last thing on his mind. The lines between good and evil fade away…
