A great last entry in the trilogy by brooks

aving seen all of Park Chan Wooks films they just keep getting better and better! If you have watched Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Oldboy then the fact that all of the actors make cameos in this will only enhance the poingant and remarkable ending in his trilogy.
