Horribly boring plot raped in an otherwise great movie
Everything about this movie is great: The characters, the acting, the cinematography, the music. Everything expect the plot. The ending does in no way, shape or form justify the buildup. It was boring, and not really twisty anyway. I wasn't...

If you can imagine a film sketched out by Shakespeare, then directed by Sam Peckinpah, you get a good glimpse of Oldboy. Tragedy, characters teetering on or over the edge of madness, plots spanning decades, over-the-top passions, taboos and...

Every so often a foreign film comes along that makes Hollywood look like a city full of amateurs. Oldboy, with its captivating story, wonderful acting, and amazing style and direction does just that. Granted the movie's off-screen but still...

Aside from Jeong-hun Jeong's expert cinematography, Yeong-wook Jo's inventive score, and a couple of genuine laughs and thrills, Park Chan-wookÂ’s Oldboy is a perfect example of style-over-substance. Point Blank and D.O.A.Â’s lovechild meets Kafka...

Good movie, but may not be for everyone.
Overall a pretty good movie. The plot goes though a few twists and turns, and the reasoning behind antagonist's actions can seem a bit ridiculous. Also, there was some taboo subject matter that will immediately turn some people off (reminded me of...

This one of those films that I wanted to enjoy more I just couldn't. The action was cool but a little few and far between. The suspense was excellent but the endings were a little too off the wall. I wanted Oh Dae-su to be more bad-a$$ but just...

Pure trash, so much buildup for a red-herring ending. Perverse and pointless movie whose main character is put in a rather boring unbelievable situation.

A remarkable film with remarkably stylish and disturbing visuals. I cringed multiple times but even throughout the shocking images i was transfixed on the story. The abrupt shifts in the story are fascinating.

Something compelled to watch this movie from start to finish. That I had to do. It wasn't the good reviews, but I just needed to know what happened and why. Well, now I do. I completely did not get this move. I am the first to admit I am not a...
