Editorial Reviews

From director Spike Lee comes this chillingly dark tale of vengeance bursting with unforgettable twists and turns. Kidnapped and kept in solitary confinement for 20 years, Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin) has suddenly been set free without a word of explanation. Obsessed with finding those who imprisoned him, Doucett wreaks havoc upon his captors, unaware his freedom is part of a plan and his true punishment's about to begin. Starring Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlito Copley.

I suggest that you, the viewer, please see the original film first and foremost. The original is breathtaking, beautifully done, and unforgettable. This remake film isn't entirely horrible;however, it's just not even comparable to the artistic excellence of the original film. The original South Korean film is on netflix. It is an experience, and it tells the story in a logical way that the remake waters down, muddies, and jumps over. Visually, the original is sharp and striking, the colors are vivid. The acting captures every facet of feeling, and it's fleshed out with nothing missing in between. The original doesn't leave you wanting more, you'll be taken aback, thinking about it after it's over. You'll feel full, over full. If you're a light-weight, then see the remake. If you're ready to be shocked and wrapped up in a classic film, please don't see the remake. South Korean Original all the way.

After begging for money for months and finally (somehow) ending up with a bloated budget of $30,000,000 to remake a film that originally cost $3,000,000, Spike Lee just swindled a whole lot of people to produce a lazy remake that ended up being a total flop at the box office. There really isn't much more to say about Spike Lee's remake of the classic Korean film "Oldboy," other than the fact that it is a pathetic attempt at a cash grab and the completely unnecessary "Americanization" of a modern foreign classic. This film makes light of the dark and haunting story of Oldboy and even makes some parts that should have been dark and gut-wrenching unintentionally funny. The whole film feels like a goofball attempt to remake Oldboy in terms that a western audience would enjoy, seeing as how the original Oldboy was probably too smart for most western audiences in the first place with its subtlety and a visceral, unflinching script.
As much as I enjoy watching Josh Brolin as an actor, he is barely passable in this film. Brolin barely captures Min-Sik Choi's dark performance in the original. The supporting cast, even with phenomenal actors like Sharlto Copley and Sam Jackson, this film felt lifeless, boring, and an insult to Chan-Wook Park.

Skip this garbage, watch the original, and stop giving Spike Lee money.

At first you think it's just another lame remake of a classic film. Then you realize that everything fun, freaky, and unique about the original has been sucked out of it. No mystery left here, everything is spoonfed to us. Where all the characters in the original were worthy of our sympathy, these characters start out as dispicable and unlikeable. Gone is the beauty and visual poetry replaced by cliché and tedium.

That's when you realize it doesn't just fail as a remake, but also as a film in it's own right. All the characters are cliché. The acting is bored and disinterested. The direction is pretty much nonexistent. Beyond that, and probably most painful of all, this movie is tedious. It is paced like a turtle on quaaludes. That makes this already painfully bad movie seem to last forever. It's like having your eyes water boarded, except that you know that waterboarding ends.

Avoid this movie. It's bad as just a movie. If you're a fan of the original then it's one of the lower levels of hell.

Terrible, subpar, unimaginative, and bland. None of these words would I use to describe the original... oh, and pandering. However, this version of Oldboy does all of those things effortlessly. So really, what I'm saying, is that it's a pretty bad movie and stick with the original. I love me some Brolin, but even he can't save this train wreck.

Twenty thousand dollars worth of diamonds. Yup.

I was so excited to see the remake of one my favorite films. I seen a lot of remakes before but I wish I hadn't seen this one. To say I was fustrated and angry with this remake is an understatement. I don't see how you can screw up a movie that's already made. All you have to do is copy. This movie is garbage and just doesn't tie well from start to finish. Do yourself a favor and watch the original before watching this one. The original will make you cry and feel sympathy. This version is too focus on the badass guy with no feelings and you could care less for any of the characters.

Watch an Apple commercial, a SyFy Channel original, and drink some Drain-O to reach the same effect.

Spike Lee is a hack who cannot make a movie that is not about racism. The film is hokey in addition to being one GIANT commercial for all things Apple. It is riddled with over the top product placement at crucial turning points of the story. You will find awful lines like: "Here... Just use Apple Maps" or "We can use Shazam to figure that out."

The villain is absolutely ridiculous and utterly unbelievable. Not sure where they found this guy, but if I had to guess, I would say that he was probably found in the rejected pile from an early 90's porn. He seems as un-natural and awkward as Paris Hilton playing Mother Theresa.

The fight scenes are almost comical. You can clearly see punches being pulled or just not connecting at all. However, the worst thing about the fight scenes is the fact that Brolin is repeatedly hit with an assortment of blunt weapons which illicit no reaction (no even a flinch).

The original is a work of art. The remake (which I was extremely excited for) is a regurgitated piece of dog s*** that makes no sense. If I were Spike Lee I would be ashamed to release this 30 million dollar piece of s***. It was as if he said, "Hey, lets take an awesome idea and awesome characters and see if we can make 104 minutes of nonsensical dribble while simultaneously wasting a s*** ton of money and talent."

Please, for the love of all that is holy, do not waste your time.

I am not one of those people who gets off on tearing into someone's artistic work. This is my first ever review, but I could not hold my tongue on this one.
