The 3rd part of director Chan-Wook Park's "vengeance" trilogy is my least favorite. If you blink you're lost. The cuts in this film go back in forth in time and place constantly. There seems to be a million different characters to keep track of. In comparison MR. VENGEANCE is simplicity and I am a firm believer in keeping it simple for the stupid people out there like myself. It also seems to go on way to long which is a problem I feel it shares with OLDBOY. The scenes are all shot beautifully though and the ending is a very powerful one in which vengeance does run wild but that again goes on after the movie could have ended. All in all I view this whole series as starting out great and getting not so great as they go on. I do have to re-watch OLDBOY again at some point. That one seems to be everyone's favorite except mine.

The American trailer seems to simplify things and turns it into a straight ahead revenge flick which it really isn't:
