Oldboy: Revenge!Oldboy, revenge-based romantic comedy or nightmare of dating singles?
This film is about Oh Dae-su an average salaryman in Seoul and his inexplicable kidnapping and imprisonment. After fifteen years he is released and attempts to unravel the mystery of why he was imprisoned.
This film has the best reality-based fight scene I have ever seen. The people looked exhausted as they tried to fight each other and the punches and hits missed more often than they landed. Yet, they kept at it, only pausing to catch their breaths - it was pretty awesome.
Beyond the too numerous to name violent scenes; there are a few comedic moments that brought levity to the story, such as the aforementioned fight scene and when Oh Dae-su and Mido first talk at her apartment.
I liked it, but to say the film was uncomfortable would be putting it mildly. Let's just say there's nothing like incest and horrific torture to make this lady squirm in her seat. Ew. Watch with caution.Comments:this was a brillantly crafted film... but, yes, I agree that to watch it is to know too much about things that are better left unsaid.Post a Comment
Any word on when the third one is coming out/ being released?
