    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    An artfully depraved piece of South Korean torture porn directed by Kim Ji-woon, is a skillful serial-killer thriller in keeping with the likes of "Saw." show more

    On any number of levels, "Devil" is troublesome at best, offensive at worst. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Director Kim Jee-woon's astonishing story of a serial killer who picks the wrong man's fiancée to murder, is so extreme and intense that it had to be trimmed down in its native country before it was released to theaters. We lucky westerners get to see it in all its hair-raising, stomach-churning glory, and that's a wonderful thing. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    A thriller that makes you wish you knew how to scream "O.M.G." in Korean. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    But that ending is a whopper all the same: a heartless blast of tragedy, exploitation, amusement, and general flagrance. show more

    Pam Grady Boxoffice Magazine

    Plenty of people die in I Saw the Devil, but it is that first attack on Ju-yeon in the movie's opening minutes that reverberates through the epic 141-minute running time. show more

    Joshua Rothkopf Time Out New York

    Ultimately, the returns of the film's premise can't justify a nearly two-and-a-half-hour squirm. The savagery is honest, raw and hardly entertainment. show more
