Product Description

South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook directed this violent and offbeat story of punishment and vengeance. Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik) is a husband and father whose reputation for womanizing is well known. One day, for reasons he doesn't understand, Oh Dae-su finds himself locked up in a prison cell, with no idea of what his crime was or whom his jailers may be. With a small television as his only link to the outside world and a daily ration of fried dumplings as his only sustenance, Oh Dae-su struggles to keep his mind and body intact

This film is fantastic. It's full of mystery and kept my interest right up until the credits. It's about a man named Oh Dae-su, who lives with his wife and daughter. He is kidnapped and later wakes up to find himself in a private makeshift prison. Dae-su wonders what made someone hate him so much enough to imprison him without any reason. While imprisoned, Dae-su hears on the TV news that his wife was murdered. Dae-su swears to take revenge on the person who destroyed his happy life. Fifteen years later, he is released with a wallet filled with money and a mobile phone. An unknown man calls Dae-su and asks him to figure out why he was imprisoned. The story then unfolds into an incredible and shocking tale of revenge. This movie is an absolute must-see.

I am a huge Chan-wook Park fan, and it all began with Oldboy.

This is the ultimate in revenge films. A man is locked away for 15 years, never told why, then released. His captor then plays a game with him, giving the man a period of time to figure out who his jailer is and why he had him imprisoned in the first place. Chan-wook Park's revenge films usually have a message: Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (his first in the "series") shows that revenge is cyclical and never-ending, while Lady Vengeance (the third in the "series") speaks to the hollowness of revenge. Oldboy takes a different approach which I won't spoil here. And the ending... My first time seeing this movie was in a small theatre. When the film finished, everyone walked out of the place silent, just in awe of... well, you'll see. Other notable scenes: the "dentistry" scene (gore fans will enjoy this), and the "hammer" scene, a fight scene in a hallway that lasts several minutes and appears to have been shot all at once with no cuts.

If you enjoy Asian cinema, but have never seen Oldboy, do so immediately. If you are looking for a movie that could convert you, this may be the one. It's got everything: a great story, violence, some dark humor, a little nudity, and enough twists that I would suspect anyone who claims they guessed how it would end is a liar.

No remake or reboot or re-imagining will come close to the sheer brilliance, beauty and boldness of this wonderful film. It's up there with the greats like The Godfather and Shawshank. One can only hope that Spike Lee doesn't completely ruin this cult classic. But he probably will.

One of my favourite films ever. Wanted to show my husband the Korean version before the English version comes out this fall. If you like this you should also try "I saw the devil"

oldboy is pretty awesome with a storyline that holds your attention the whole way through and some pretty excellent action thrown in as well. I saw the little twist near the end coming a mile away but thats a minor set back from what otherwise is a really good movie. Great acting by all the leads and the first half keeps you wondering what exactly is going on. I'd say the first half was my favorite and most interesting part of the movie. I recently watched I Saw The Devil which has been compared to this movie i actually liked istd a little bit more than oldboy but they are still both great moviers.

Format: DVD
Lots has been said about this film. It is neither a classic nor a flop. After seeing this film last night I found it to be pretty decent. There's no reason to bash this film because it does deserve to be rated moderately. When rating a film I ask myself what is the film giving the audience and what is the message that the director is pushing across. In this film the message is not much smarter than your average horror flick, and the only feeling you have after seeing it is disgust. That's not really a bad thing, if it has direction. In films like `Seven' there is and it can be summed up really easy in the last sentences from Morgan Freeman. "The world is a beautiful place and worth fighting for. I agree with the last part." Because `Oldboy' lacks a message like this the whole film becomes an empty vessel.

That being say, it might be one of the best empty vessels created. 'Oldboy' has a very intriguing premise: A man has been locked up for 15 years in a private prison by unknown people. No reason has been given for this punishment. After he is finally released, he tries to find out who imprisoned him and what their motives are. The first part of the movie is very good. The plot is a little bizarre but you simply want to know what is going on.

I will say the photography is stunning, the editing is clever and the acting is at most parts really good. The story is smart, but becomes a little to smart at times. It's trying too much to live up to films like "Memento" or "Seven." With a better resolution of the plot and a slightly less playful style this could have been a complete winner. I will say `OldBoy' kept me entertain and didn't bore me one bit. Is worth watching for those who interested in this genre.
