Critic Reviews of "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance"Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionAugust 06, 2006
... as brutal as it is beautiful.Houston ChronicleJune 30, 2006
Squanders plot impetus, and even with constant crosscutting it's lethargically paced, slogging through soap-operatic back stories and maddening irrelevancies.Dallas Morning NewsJune 29, 2006
The films strain to present some kind of moral compass, a philosophy of revenge's human toll. But in the end, their sadistic glee in creative bloodshed trumps all.Minneapolis Star TribuneJune 29, 2006
Because I am a connoisseur of art cinema, my feelings about Lady Vengeance are complex. Some parts I liked; some parts I didn't.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Pound-of-flesh cinema, you might say.Seattle TimesJune 23, 2006
Apart from Park's impressive but ultimately hollow style (his images are impeccably composed and visually inventive), Lady Vengeance is still an exercise in wretched excess (though less extreme than its predecessors).CinePassionAugust 30, 2009
Talks Sin and Salvation while spending all his creative energies on debasing gags and sneering wide-angle shotsColeSmithey.comApril 15, 2009
Park Chanwook works his Grand Guignol sense of humor against Korean social conditions to effect a call-and-response logic to the metaphoric and literal things that happen onscreen.Eye for FilmJuly 10, 2007
in Lady Vengeance, revenge is ultimately a shabby, sordid business that leaves everybody soiled and in need of purification - or at least of a pie in the face.Film ScoutsJune 21, 2007
The story is delightfully multilayered, the look stylish, and the horror component top notch.
