I thought this movie was decent. This movie is a remake of an Asian original film of the same name.
Yes I've seen the original and I think they're about as good as each other, just in different ways. Most remakes are sub par, but this was okay I thought. Some are a definite improvement, Dawn of the Dead, Solaris, The Man Who Knew Too Much. Sure plenty are crap, but if you haven't seen the original, switch your brain off and enjoy this movie for what it is, a decent take on the most powerful theme in movies, the revenge theme.
For those who have seen the original and are crying over my last sentence, go jump in a lake.
