If you dont mind foreign films dubbed in the english language then by all means check this one out! Great plot twister that has the fiancee of an elite special agent being abducted by a roaming psychopath. The agent, in a beautifully executed revenge plot starts a cat and mouse game with her abductor. Korean filmmakers seem to have a great mind for revenge i dont know if thats scary or a good thing? Great foreign film.

Like Oldboy, this is a revenge thriller with a heart - a film that takes no pleasure in the pain it doles out and manages to feed an emotional current of sadness and remorse. That is, ultimately, what touched me about this film, since, without this thematic thread (and the skillfully and often beautiful direction and cinematography), it would be an unbearable experience. The film is graphic and brutal, often unflichingly so. But I think it redeems itself with the final shot.

An amazing revenge thriller - not quite as good as Oldboy, but then, what is in that department? Byung-hun Lee and Min-sik Choi turn in excellent performances as the man responsible for the killings and the one trying to stop him at all costs. It gets violent, has some great twists and a gruesome end - all in all, a dark, fascinating film.
