About the Movie
Oldboy follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor's motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What's onscreen feels squeezed, truncated and curiously embalmed. It's got no kick to it... Oldboy just lies there like old news that's not worth a second thought.
Rotten: A vivid yet academic remake, this Oldboy is shorter, leaner and lesser.
Fresh: Hollywood's wildest cinematic freakout since "Shutter Island" is a remake of-and an improvement on-the Korean original, from 2003.
Fresh: Just as depraved and depressing as the original.
Watch the original Korean version!!! There's no comparison...
Good but Original is better
Spike Lee and Josh Brolin do their best but nothing beat the original which contains one of the Best fight scenes every flimed a gang vs one man and a hammer
Spike Lee + James Brolin + A Classic, Twisted Story= RUBBISH
What a waist of $15.
