    Korean classic. In the film, no one divides anyone into "black" and "white"; the viewer empathizes with all the characters. The film will make you think about moral issues. Translated to English


    Of the entire "revenge trilogy,” this film is, of course, the most famous. And deservedly so. A real work of art, a movie that will make you think. And maybe it will change something in you forever. But watch the other two parts. Then you will know about Revenge from all sides. Translated to English


    I don’t understand where there are so many good ratings, you can’t pull the plot on your head Translated to English


    Your main mistake was that you found the answer. It is impossible to find the correct answer to incorrectly posed questions. Translated to English


    A powerful movie that takes your breath away while watching… And it also has a long aftertaste. Translated to English


    I rewatched it 8 years later, and my opinion has not changed at all – 10/10. Definitely the best part of the trilogy, which is why I fell in love with South Korean cinema. PS Saburov really got into the role perfectly. Translated to English


    A brilliant crime thriller about revenge in the diversity of its causes and methods of implementation. Translated to English


    The most popular, kmk, cruel, scary and sad South Korean fairy tale. Gave a point for staging techniques. National cinema Yu.K. – alien and unpleasant, I won’t watch anything else. Translated to English


    Boring arthouse. Lengthy, sleepy, without memorable scenes or dialogues. Apart from the supposed catchphrase about laughter and tears, the main character’s monologues are unremarkable. After reading a bunch of flattering reviews about the film, I was hoping for something more. I don’t know what causes the general euphoria from watching this film… Translated to English
