What a fantastic movie. It was recommended to me by a friend a couple years ago and just recently did I get around to watching it; if I knew what I was in for I would have definitely found time sooner! I would much rather have a film stay with you after the credits have finished rolling and Oldboy definitely does that.

It is a very mysterious movie and always has you guessing as to... read more

Bloody Brilliant

Brilliant and disgustingly so. Min-sik Choi did a wonderful performance with his character. The transformation from drunken lout to tormented soul was excellent then add into that moments of insanity. I'm sure playing a man who has been imprisoned in solitary confinement for 15 years was hard but I felt he pulled it off enough to make it believable.
The story line was great and had me just... read more

"Apparently Oldboy was Manga first, though I had no idea until much later. I still haven't read it so I can't honestly compare the two, but Oldboy is one of my all-time favorite films ever so I'd be doing it a disservice to not include it."

Movie Reviews (801-850) (50 movies items)

" Engaging visuals, fast paced and a memorable vengeance story with plenty of gruesome moments that stick out like violence with a hammer violence and eating of live animals. It's bleak streaks of humor and the strange feel of poetic (in)justice also is gripping. Maybe I'm also a little disturbed and terrible in my mind but I predicted the surprise plot twist in the film even though there was a shock (to me) that the film actually went through with it. Still, a very strong film that stick in my "

“(REVIEW IN SPANISH)

Un filme brillante, que entre sus muchas virtudes posee, para comenzar, una trama bien construida que sabe manejar el misterio y que posee giros excelentemente construidos y anticipados, además de que, a medida que avanza, esta justifica cada elemento que a primera instancia parece ilógico (Como el hecho de que Mido lleve a su casa a un hombre que acaba de conocer) Así mismo, la película también hace un buen trabajo trabajando a sus personajes, especialmente en su antagonista, el cual resulta bastante interesante, en su motivación, su actitud (al no querer que Oh Daesu muera, sino que sufra) y por su plan, el cual concluye en un clímax poderoso y dramático.

En lo que al apartado técnico refiere, Park Chan Wook hace un gran trabajo en la dir” read more
