I was hoping this was going to be a good remake but i was completely wrong everything about this movie is pure crap. Spike Lee has made some decent film in his time so i was hoping that he wouldnt mess this film up. I already knew it wasnt going to be anything like the original as in most cases with remakes but this is a slap to the face to the original. The cast is one of the things that really m... read more

"Heaven make me free of it. The rest is silence."

Park Chan-wook's 2003 thriller Oldboy is, simply putting it, a masterpiece of revenge cinema. It's a cult classic and is regarded by many as one of the great Asian films of all time. So obviously Hollywood thought it'd be a great idea to remake it for a western audience. Many fans, including myself, were against this, but once news w... read more

History won't repeat, I mean sometime in a remake.

One of my all time favorite world cinema is the Korean version of this movie. Remakes are okay, but some movies won't suit for recreation because of its masterpiece value, believing that won't come close for the second time. Just like Mona Lisa, Starry Night, Birth of Venus, The Last Supper and other arts, it should have left alone untouched. Like Japanese did, because it was their story after all... read more

An average movie

“The lack of of originality in the  American cinema nowadays is just really sad and, instead of coming up with something new,  they keep giving us some endless sequels and they are ready to remake pretty much anything at this point. From all these remakes, this must be the weirdest one and definitely one of the most misguided. I mean, can you believe that, at some point, it was supposed to be directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Wil Smith? At least, with Spike Lee and Josh Brolin involved,  it did sound slightly more promising but, the end-result was still disappointing, I'm afraid. Apparently, Lee's version was actually supposed to be more than 30 mins longer but, even with a longer duration, I'm not sure if it would been really much better. Basically, the main issue is that it is ” read more

"23.2.2016 Sarjassamme täysin turhat hollyremaket, joista on vaikea löytää mitään kehuttavaa. Sentään Samuel L. Jacksonilla oli irokeesi, Spike Lee ei ole rasisti ja ehkä, siis ehkä, muutamassa kohdassa tämä näytti visuaalisesti ihan kivalta. Silti aika kauas jäädään Parkin visioista. Ja voi kyllä, alkuperäinen Oldboy on mielestäni hyvä elokuva, vaikka joku tänne tuleekin kohta huutelemaan sitä keskinkertaiseksi korealaiseksi."
