Plot – Spoilers:
Oh Dae-su is what most people other than his few close friends would describe as obnoxious and annoying. After a drunken brawl that continues into the police station, Oh Dae-su is bailed out by a friend. He stops by at a phone booth to talk to his little daughter but is abducted by unknown people and dumped in a room. For 15 years. When he finally makes it out, he is seething with revenge and questions on why he was imprisoned.

There is not much else to say other than that Oldboy is one of the greatest films a human can ever see.

In somehow they’re(where they got they own unique rhythm and style, particularly plot wise and ow they act in – no tall- many ways. Yeah, indeed), and other ways they simply aren’t, not even close. Good that that has been settled down and clarified out as well:-)

Oj’s comment wasn’t negative at all, why woud you need to replie such a negative response Juu? Breathe a little bit before you post such comment, maybe you are just a simple troll or maybe you are just a sad person, either way, I don’t envy you, relax, take a deep breath and start to feel what’s around you, spread love and not hate, in those dark times the only thing we should do is to better ourselves, understand and accept each other, if we don’t do that, we are doomed and probably deserve to be.

excellent photography, and acting, but too artsy for me. lame fight scenes. couldn’t even finish the movie. I Saw the Devil also staring Choi way better, Luved that one… check it out on this most excellent site. Also Ichi the Killer, one of my new all time favorites.

“A tongue can accuse and carry bad news…the seeds of destruction will sow…but unless you’ve made no mistakes in your life…BE CAREFUL OF THE STONES YOU THROW!”. -Hank Williams Sr. Watch this most excellent film (and quite possibly most original film even by the exacting standards of Asian cinema) and you will have an even greater appreciation for the equally great lyrics quoted above! Mind your own mother fucking business and keep your yap shut!

One of the best movies ever made period.

eh from the swedish corona virus perspective this movie offers a interesting perspective on the Swedish coronavirus situation. The the isolation is to feel and and to touch from. I as a Swedish inhabitant can really relate to how the main character is feeling. This movie portrays a post-mordernistic view on the coronavirus 19 situation in Sweden. The main character can be portrayed as the conservative party’s ahm, and the opposing political view is the anti villain. This movie proves how the underdogs of society are actually the architect of the capitalists societal view. “The post modernists are obsessed with… Read more »

I GUESS you can connect themes to “the Swedish coronavirus situation,” but that’s bit of a stretch. O_o…actually- no. Let me rephrase that….That is a MASSIVE stretch.

The ending is what made this movie worth watching. Actors and actresses did AMAZING. It shows two sides of a story and tugs at the heart strings. I’d give it an 7.5/10.
Some parts of the movie were slow and a tad bit confusing; however, I don’t discourage anyone who wants to watch this film. I would definitely recommend it.

After watching this movie as a reanimated mummified duck from Ramses the 50th’s dynasty, I completely agree that Oldboy is one of the greatest films anyone can ever see. Also, you dare call yourself Gestapo and human at the same time. Nice.

…And the moral of the story is? Stay out of other people’s family business (Wretched though it may be) don’t involve yourself in the rumour mikk and keep your fucking mouth shut! The tongue is the most dangerous part of the human body and the damage it can cause is staggering!

Judge me all you like. Go off on another Bonnie and Clyde friendship with yourself again if you want. But remember, I won’t be there to pick up the pieces this time. You’ll be strutting around the place like you own it. Eating takeaway burgers with albino mayonaise thinking you’re the shit. It’ll become empty and hollow just like every other time. When you crawl back with your tail between your legs I won’t listen. Then the harsh reality’ll hit you clean like a cold slap in the face- That I ain’t got no time for you, you bald wanker.

Gosh darn it! If you imposters think I’m going to sit around like some Miss Dimini Two-Shoes while you steal my identity you have another thing coming. I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck, you know. Just because I called people spics, japs and used other racist slurs doesn’t mean you have to steal my nickname. What? Do you hold a grudge?

Right! That’s it, I’ve had enough! Everybody has a limit and I’ve reached mine. There’s probably 3 different imposters commenting on this movie alone (which none of you have even watched in all likelyhood). Stop copying me! NOW! or I’m calling the police!
