Beyond Outrage review

Posted : 2 years, 5 months ago on 18 April 2014 01:46 (A review of Beyond Outrage)

The sequel for Beat Takeshi's 2010 yakuza movie. If you don't want spoilers please stop reading now.
For me, this sequel is not needed at all, the first movie can stand alone on its own. It didn't end with a happy ending but still it's quite fine.
This follows the event left by the 1st movie. Otomo did not die at all, it was all made up by Detective Kataoka for his own plan. I thought Otomo went soft after spending some years inside the prison, he didn't want to avenge his dead comrades until those 2 thugs under Kimura got beaten to death, but that changes after the ending when he killed Kataoka that was really unexpected, I really hated that guy in the 1st movie and wanted him dead but he was okay in this one and I think he really care for Otomo (or maybe I'm wrong and he is just a selfish bastard). Otomo and Kimura exact revenge to those who fooled and betrayed them. The death of Ishihara by baseballl pitching machine was kinda special, poor skinny gangster. Still there are things to do after the death of Kimura or is he really dead? I really want this trilogy to end with a bang, can't wait for the last one.

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance review

Posted : 2 years, 6 months ago on 22 March 2014 01:10 (A review of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance)

So finally I completed Chan Wook Park's revenge trilogy after watching this. I really love the first two (especially Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) so I will be bluntly honest with this one when I say that this is not as good as first two movies. I was always hesitant on watching this one because I thought that Yeong-ae Lee can't pull it off (because I am used to seeing her as an abused maid or whatever she was in the TV series in Jewel in the Palace, which my family loved to watch everyday when it was shown in our country) but I was wrong, she did an amazing job. She was really terrific, so fierce with her red mascara, high heels and that cool North Korean gun.

But what I hated in this movie is its inconsistencies, she shot two guys(the accomplices of Mr. Baek), the first got a big hole in his head the other one got his hand chopped off but when she shot Mr. Baek's feet it only got a tiny hole (maybe his shoes is made from kevlar or something equivalent?). She also shot him at the end and the result is minimal also.

But aside from that technicalities, the story of the movie is pretty neat as expected from Chan Wook Park. I liked the part when the families of victims got their chance to extract revenge on Mr. Baek. They really acted well, but what I didn't like is how Mr. Baek looked, that is not the look of someone getting tortured, you can't even feel fear in his eyes. I would have liked to see more bruises, more blood, more painful screams a la "Hostel". That was supposed to be the climax of the movie but it was meh.

But overall this is a good movie, I just had a big expectation after watching the first two movies of the Revenge Trilogy and it left me a little disappointed.
