I Saw The Devil is a film about a serial killer, a horrifying and bloody film about what happens to a man who tries to catch a monster, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have incredible action scenes as well. This is a South Korean film, after all!
Here’s a new clip with some proof. Some backstory- Min-sik Choi (Oldboy) is a serial killer who’s about to kill a woman when Byung-hun Lee (The Good, the Bad, the Weird) catches up to him. He’s a cop but he’s not exactly in his right mind, since his fiance was the killer’s last victim.

Check Jacob Hall’s spot-on review of the film and really, see this one if it’s playing a theater near you. The IFC Center in NYC is still running it, get on it if you have the stomach!
And for now, let’s reminisce about what’s still Min-sik Choi’s best fight.
