I Saw the Devil
I watched, “I Saw the Devil,” and it was intense, to say the least. This film hails from Korea and is an edge-of-your-seat thriller. Strange, I know, as it isn’t paranormal, but it’s graphic, brutal and is one of the rare films with black-and-white heroes and villains, without becoming one-dimensional.
The film stars Byung-hun Lee as an overworked special agent at the movie’s launch. His fiance’s car breaks down in a remote area. While waiting on a tow truck, a stranger stops to offer help. However, the good Samaritan turns out to be a prolific serial murderer and he claims his next victim.
Agent Kim Soo-hyeon gives new meaning to the term, “torture,” and this violent cat-and-mouse game is anything, but predictable. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely for action fans who don’t mind the sight of blood.
