Horror doesn’t always have to be bad
Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, a work by one of my favorite new directors, was a very different movie then what i originally expected. Having seen Oldboy, I was expecting a much different film. However, Chanwook Park pleasantly surprised me with the first part of his revenge trilogy. The plot line is brutal, but the visceral appeal of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance lies in the motives. Nothing is random, everything is explained, and the viewer can understand why every action is called for. However, this is a brutal movie. The action is tough, the dialogue minimal, with no quick cuts or mindful music. That being said, it is never grotesque and the gore never gets to be too much. The visual images in this movie will stay with you for days, and the cinematography is flawless. I would recommend this movie for fans of the horror genre looking for an exciting new film, and people that do not watch horror movies because they are usually pointless works in gore. Few if any criticisms, the lack of music works both for and against the film, as I found myself sometimes shifting away from the screen. 9 out of 10, highly recommended, but brutal.
Certainly no walk in the (Chan-Wook) Park
“Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance” is the first part of the already legendary revenge-trilogy, brought to perfection with “Oldboy” in 2003 and recently completed in 2005 with “Lady Vengeance”. Although not as brilliant as everyone claims, this first installment is definitely an impressive collection of raw action, uncanny characters and disturbing images. There’s a whole lot going on (a bit too much, to be honest), but the main storyline involves a deaf-mute guy (very recognizable thanks to his green hair!) and his weirdo girlfriend trying to raise enough money to pay for his sister’s desperately needed kidney transplant. They first encounter some sort of black market organ network (with dramatic consequences) before deciding to kidnap Ryu’s wealthy boss’ daughter and demand a ransom. The sister, unaware of the crimes Ryu commits for her sake, then commits suicide, as she can’t stand being such a burden. When the little girl then also dies in a tragic accident, her father wants to take his revenge, too. The most notable achievement is how director Chan-Wook Park, seemly without much effort, changes devastating social drama topics with hard-boiled violence and how he makes both styles appear equally powerful. Apart from that, he also has an extremely talented eye for imaginative cinematography and a pitch-black sense of humor. Unfortunately, the spreading of the action & excitement is very uneven, as most of the [email protected] footage features in the last 30 minutes, and the revenge patterns are too predictable. Nevertheless, a handful of sequences belong to the all-time most unsettling pieces of action-cinema (the cremation of the little girl, to name just one) and Park gives an excellent demonstration of what solid, surefooted directing skills look like.
