I love Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and especially Oldboy with a great deal of respect for Lady Vengeance so it was a no-brainer for me to get this set, which came out in an exclusive Tin Box Set at a certain electronics store I won't mention here but of which most fans of the films should know. Unfortunately, I and many others who purchased this set fell victim to a case of false advertising on, not only the box, but from the Oldboy blu-ray case stored inside. First of all, the box set indicates that it contains 8 discs but upon opening it and then the individual cases for the films, there are actually 4 discs. Ok, that's not terrible although it would've been preferable to separate some of the extras on Oldboy in another disc to make the audio/video presentation the best possible. And that brings me to my biggest complaint. The Oldboy Blu-Ray case AND disc itself lists that it has DTS-MA lossless audio (oh yeah, the Tin Box set lists that, too) but it actually does NOT have it. It doesn't even have lossless audio. It seems like Palisades-Tartan (the makers of the Blu-Ray) decided to drop that audio, which IS available on the original single disc Blu-Ray release of Oldboy, to make room for a 3 hour documentary. The documentary is very good and wasn't available on the original BD but why drop the lossless audio? Along with high def video, high def audio is a MAJOR selling point for buying Blu-Rays. So, why mention that you have it and not follow through with it? Why be under-handed and fool with the consumer? If you want them to double or triple dip on films, then at least be honest with your advertising on what your releases actually contain inside them. There, I got that off my chest. I e-mailed Palisades-Tartan about this and just wanted to write this review to warn people.Read more ›

I won't bother reviewing the films themselves here; at this point, if you're looking into buying the set, you're probably already a fan. If not, I highly recommend you rent the films first as these are definitely not for everyone. That being said, all of them are fantastic films. Oldboy in particular will likely be viewed years from now as being a masterpiece and the other two are great as well in their own right.

Let's start off with the elephant in the room: Oldboy. It's definitely the most popular and acclaimed film in the collection and, unfortunately, has the most maligned high-def presentation. Mainly, there are complaints that the picture quality is mediocre and that it's missing the 7.1 lossless audio from the original Blu-ray.

1. The picture quality is true to the source and to the director's own intentions. Park discusses the look of the film on the features; a different chemical process was used and the bleached color, hazy photography, heavy grain, etc was all part of how he wanted his film to look. In this regard, I can't imagine the film looking that much better in high definition (although I'd loved to be proved wrong someday). It will always be an "ugly" film and will never look perfect.

2. The audio itself is more problematic as this was an error on Tartan's part. Still, boycotting the set and/or waiting for a future re-release from Tartan will likely be a fruitless endeavor. There's an easy solution that requires minimal effort. Here's the situation: at the time of this writing they will, with proof of purchase, supply you with a FREE copy of the original Blu-ray AND two free DVDs of your choice from their library. This is a great deal. After talking to them, I got the replacement Blu-ray and the two DVDs in a matter of days.

The movies included on this set are great! I love each one dearly, this set, however, is a bit of a problem. First of all the packaging lists the set as an 8 disk set, this set only has 4 disks. I can live with that, it's a typo, or the same copy from the 8 disk standard def version, all the content is there in half the disks, fine. Here is where it gets worrisome, quite a few people have reported their sets are missing the 32-page booklet. There have also been reports that some sets include multiple copies of one movie but none of the other movies. Lets, say you receive a copy that has the book and a perfect copy of each movie. Here is the kicker, on Oldboy there is supposed to have DTS-HD lossless mix(it's listed on the box), this is no where to be found. This is a mastering error, Palisades/Tartan has not officially acknowledged this, they might fix it they might now. So no matter what you get, you get a set that is defective. I am quite surprised they allowed this set out the door with these glaring problems.

There's way, way too much to talk about with these movies on blu-ray, especially considering the special features they have for each one. Simply put, even with that audio mistake on the Oldboy disc that everyone's whining about, there's no way this set deserves anything less than 5 stars. I'm assuming anyone looking at this page is already a fan of at least one of the movies here, so I won't bother with the plot summaries (again, there's too much to talk about!), and I'll just focus on the technical aspects.

As far as the picture quality goes, this is as good as the films are going to look. Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance looks incredible, and much better than it did on dvd. Lady Vengeance looks great too, and is the best looking of the three by far. The colors are vibrant and you can notice every tiny detail in things from the characters' outfits to the tears rolling down the cheeks of children in a certain hard to watch scene. Oldboy however, doesn't look much different from the original dvd release, and there's a reason why. On the special features, they talk about how Park wanted the same colors and tones as the movie Seven. So they used a bleach bypass process on the actual film to get the desired look, sacrificing crystal clear picture quality as a result. So because of this, I can't exactly knock on the picture quality since this is how everything's -supposed- to look. Think back to a movie like 28 Days Later where the grain and grittiness helps the movie- would you want to see it looking as sharp and clear as something like, say the recent Alice in Wonderland? Oldboy doesn't look horrible by any means, but it's easily the ugly one of the three. Still, it looks good, and it's not the transfer's fault.

Its 50/50 chance it will come with a tin collector metal case or cardboard box.

That would be sacrilege to listen to these fine films dubbed. Let's pretend this question wasn't posed here and we'll leave it at that.
