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.

Oldboy tells the story of Joe (Brolin) who sets out to find out why he was kidnapped and locked into solitary confinement for 20 years.

Its not that Oldboy is a terrible movie but a remake that just isn't done as well as the original. The story here is a bit muddled and at times falls into a "kill bill-esque" feel with its fight sequences that seem almost silly. The first half of the movie where he is stuck inside the room is slow and lacking much character development or any type of exploration into madness like one would expect from someone stuck 20 years. Brolin is ok as Joe and Samuel Jackson does well as the eccentric type characters that he plays frequently but Jackson's character almost seems out of place here.

The movie was watchable but I just felt that it was missing something that original seemed to have. Sometimes you just don't remake a movie that is done well the first time and it is especially a mistake to make one that is only a few years after the original. If you are a fan of the original you most likely won't like this remake.

This movie is watchable but I will only watch once.

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.

It wasn't a terrible movie, but it felt really unnecessary and certainly paled in comparison to the original.

Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen are two of my favorite actors today.But this remakes, like many other reviews state, is not even comparable to the original. There are a few scenes that are done better, but it lacks a certain heart the original South Korean version had. The original has one of the best film soundtracks in my opinion with some incredible and breathtaking cinematography. There were lots of scenes in this movie that didn't even make too much sense, or almost had a pseudo-comic feel to it. The soundtrack was not in the least bit intriguing. Some of the torture scenes were stupid in comparison to the original! If you do watch this Oldboy, I HIGHLY suggest to watch the original Korean version first PLEASE!!! Do yourself a favor. Brolin and Olsen are great actors, BUT Choi Mik-sik is incredible in this roll! OCTOPUS
