Usually such a drive has just one corrupted driver, a single soul who sets out to rebalance the scales against those who infected their world.

Your reviews
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.

i've watch the trailer...she look so different in Dae jang Geum as if like it was not her at all!! I had a big shock! Anyway, to me, she looks good in any movie and drama.....Jia You!!!
this is very unique from the movies i've watched despite its plot that is quite hard to understand...unless you know the synopsis of it. lee young ae is far cry from what we used to know her in Dae Jang Geum; however, she is quite awkard for the role
