I wanna thank http://cinession.blogspot.com/ and http://sillyoldbum.blogspot.com/ for informing me that Oldboy is actually apart of the trilogy. I watched it the first one, Sympathy for Mister Vengeance, and it was pretty awesome. The director has a trend of involving brutal torture scenes in his films, better than a lot of the shit I see in American films.
I copy-pasta'd a summary for you guys since I don't have the time or energy to do it myself:
In Seoul, the deaf and dumb worker Ryu is very attached to his sister, who needs a transplantation of kidney. He tries to donate his own kidney to his sister, but his blood B type is not compatible with her. When Ryu is fired from Ilshin Electronics, he meets illegal dealers of organs and the criminals propose Ryu's kidney plus ten millions Won per a kidney suitable for his sister. Ryu accepts the trade, but he does not have money to pay for the surgery. His anarchist revolutionary girlfriend Cha Young-mi convinces him to kidnap Yossun, the daughter of his former employer Park, who owns Ilshin Electronics. However, a tragedy happens, generating revenge and a series of acts of violence. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I just need to finish the trilogy tonight with Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and I've downloaded all the seasons of Breaking Bad so I'll tell you guys how that works out tomorrow. Have a great day everyone.

  13. ALL THE PEOPLE IN MR. VENGEANCE ARE COMPLETE IDIOTS AND ALL THEIR PROBLEMS WOULD HAVE BEEN SOLVED IF THEY HADN'T OF BEEN COMPLETE IDIOTS.

    Lady Vengeance is my favorite of the trilogy. Didn't like Old Boy or Mr. Vengeance at all. The vampire movie Thirst is also by the same director and is good, and also he has a short in the Three Extremes movie that is also good check that out as well.
