BaliRob This was my first Korean film which I switched on after it had already started and came here to see if I could find out the cause of the pastor's wife' death and why the finale was at a prison the hero having obviously been incarcerated.

Typically lacking professional touch expected of a Western film was, nonetheless, sufficient to maintain my interest. I will have to keep searching for the answers I was looking for.

RamenLover Watched "Man of Vendetta" here in Daegu, South Korea. Your enjoyment of the movie will depend largely on your enthusiasm for Korean thrillers. Personally, I'm tired of the genre so I went into the screening a bit already jaded. The movie itself doesn't stand out from the crowded pack of already made Korean thrillers like "Voice of a Murderer," "Memories of Murder," and "World of Silence". Technically speaking, the movie is solid - good performances all around, script doesn't bore, and production value seems well done. Yet, for a movie made in such a crowded genre "decent" or "not bad" just doesn't cut it. At various times I did feel like I was watching the same thing over again - especially "Voice of a Murderer". If the genre was a comedy or a feel good movie the anticipation for experiencing certain emotions would be more agreeable, but for viewers that have already seen such movies before, why subject themselves to the same trauma? In fact I thought the movie felt downright exploitive in a way one man was going for movie awards by using the tired scheme of shock & the disturbing storyline of exploitation of children to garner attention. On the positive side, if you've never seen a Korean thriller before than you will probably liken "Man of Vendetta" to a scary rollercoaster ride.
