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

"Re-watch - Dec. I still recall being blown away the first time I watched Oldboy back when it had its American theatrical run, & the only downside to repeat viewings is knowing how it turns out. Thankfully all the other aspects work so well that that's a minor complaint. Despite how dark & twisted the story is I can't help but enjoy watching our protagonist's journey. It helps too that the cast is perfect & the themes of the film are so well explored & communicated. For my money it's still the "

"2.9. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Nähty vähintään parikymmentä kertaa valmistumisvuosikymmenellään, mutta on vaan edelleen joka alalla helvetin tehokas. Koston mielekkyys ja valintojen kantavuus puhuttelevat. Paskatkin ihmiset ansaitsevat mahdollisuuden epäpaskaan. Paskan ihmisen olisi syytä tietää epäpaskan löytyvän paremmin ilman muiden satuttamista. Tarpeeksi paska ihminen ei tarvitse muuta, kuin toisen paskan ihmisen totaalisen nöyryyttämisen."

JaJlN2 posted a review 1 year, 6 months ago

“Oldboy, considerada una de las mejores películas que nos ha llegado de Asia, es un caso sobre cuando una historia no tiene sentido a nivel trama, pero lo dejas pasar porque sabes que es muy exagerado y con personajes queribles. Es un misterio e historia de venganza acerca de un sujeto que es encarcelado durante quince años que una vez liberado buscará al responsable. Les diré que es una película fuertemente basada en plot twists, así que habrá spoilers fuertes de aquí en adelante.

El inicio nos muestra el deterioro mental de Dae-Su por su encarcelamiento, como va buscando escapar de varias formas para terminar fallando de cualquier manera. En otras ocasiones buscará suicidarse por saber que no está con su esposa e hija y reflexionará si fue en verdad el hombre de fami” read more

" Date: 1/30/2021 Viewed: 4K UHD (Arrow Video) Re-Watch Note: Oldboy is easily one of my favorite movies from Korea and the movie left a huge impact on me. I was the right age when I first saw this movie back in the mid 2000s when I was an angsty 15 year old in high school. Oldboy is also one of those movies that I can watch so many times and never get bored. Even if I'm super sleepy, I can still have my eyes wide open when watching the movie. What makes Oldboy so great is that it has a dark an"
