I Saw the Devil

I Saw the Devil ★★★

Having a hard time to rate this film. Well made of course but the subject matter... It's up there with Henry portait of a serial killer in my opinion. We are there witnessing the full extent of the atrocities that this character carries out that I found this so distracting that I wasn't fully engaging in the story itself which is about a victim's fiancé trying to wreak justice on the killer with un-expected results. Like a lot of these sorts of films, the killer seems to just brazenly waltz around with little or no fear of ever being caught and of course they just never are. A bit like the character in 'No Country for Old men'.
And then the ending just was not satisfying enough for all that we had to witness and was in fact a little confusing.
