A woman is wrongly imprisoned for the death of a young boy, seeking revenge against the man responsible for the murder after her release 13yrs later. Once again, Park dramatically changes both his visual style and plot arrangement from the previous two entries in his Vengeance trilogy. Lady Vengeance is told through a non-linear format, frequently jumping back and forth in time developing the lead character and introducing her accomplices. It becomes disorienting at times trying to keep track of what becomes 10-15 players in the plot against the killer, and by the time the final attack on the antagonist is revealed, the long and overly complicated build feels unnecessary considering just how simple her final plan really is. Geum-ja's character is also very hard to relate to, as she is never truly presented in a positive light and rather serves as a spiteful anti-hero. It is nice to see a few returning actors from the two previous films in new roles, including Min-Sik Choi of Old Boy fame as the antagonist. As expected, the filming, acting, and dialogue are all superb, and the film does recapture the cynical wit and dark tones common to the series, but overall Lady Vengeance felt lacking as compared to the other two films. Fans of the series cant miss this one, but removed from the other two films, this one just feels like an OK revenge flick.
