The movie was ok. The twist at the end was definitely a wtf moment. I first came across this movie on another website that listed it as a very graphically violent film but, I have to disagree I've seen films that were way more violent than this. The movie also moves at a very slow pace at certain times and the action scenes are too few and far between. I think the film would have done better if it was at least 30-40 minutes shorter. There is an American remake but I hesitate to give it a watch, American remakes of foreign films have a tendency to be butcher jobs to the original film more often than not. 6/10 for me.
this movie is better than the Oldboy American virsion ....
Good movie. Not a huge mind breaker like some have said. Definitely a wtf reaction though. I'm not often surprised.
One of m favs!! a must watch!!
For those who want to watch it with subtitles, try the links from because it seems all the others are dubbed (and terribly). It makes a HUGE difference. Loved this movie.
This film is a great watch, I enjoyed it very much. It's a gem!
what a disturbingly sick movie
I wish I knew more about all the symbolisms in this movie, it would have made it even better. Usually subtitles are better than dubs, the imagination being better than real life. Sooo I hate to do it but -1 for dubbing. Still a 9/10 for an awesome movie.
Watched "Oldboy" This is a very strange drama and mystery movie set in Japan. The story revolves around a man who kidnapped and held captive for an unknown reason. After 15 years he is released and told by his captor he has 5 days to find out why he was imprisoned. The story focuses on the man's thirst for vengeance and his quest to find out why he was imprisoned. The story and acting are okay. The ending is kind of strange and bizarre to me. Not bad overall. I would give this a 7 out of 10 stars.
This movie was great and for me very original and you can tell the director put in a monumental amount of work , very high replay value 9/10 .

This could be viewed as a spoiler so if you have not seen the original don't read this . But it looks like in the new remake they removed "the" most shocking part of the movie it is already failed , it is what made the whole point of it ... if you have seen it you will know .
