5/5

An incredible tale of momentous hardship entailed together with incredible twists keeps the viewer rooted to this film. What starts out as a 15 year kidnapping turns into a search for the truth behind the reason why. The tumultuous journey of Dae-Su, hits hard close to the heart towards the end, as a normal man turns into something that even he can’t recognize. This film presents the epitome in revenge planning and conjures up elements of shock so grave that the viewer would be left reeling. In a way, it encapsulates the consequences of our actions without us even thinking about what we are doing. One of the best South Korean movies that I’ve seen, and I’d definitely recommend the reader to watch it!
