    When Tarantino was sitting there as a juror at the 2003 Cannes Film Fesival, and he sat there watching Chan-wook Park's Oldboy..... how much do you think he felt he was being taken to school?
    chances are if you're on this site, you've seen this movie.... perhaps even a few times and you already know this movie is a poetic masterpiece of revenge, violence, sadness and mortality. it's the film that blasted modern Korean cinema on the international radar and…

    A very well shot, well acted and well paced mystery film. It reminded me of Almodovar's 'Volver' in some of the story elements near the end, which obvious isn't a problem, but 'Volver' might have been inspired by this story. The music was also very atmospheric, helping to set this dark tone. I can see why it's such a cult classic!

    Iconic, unforgettable, thoughtful and disturbing thriller with overtones of a modern-day Hitchcock (and I mean that as the highest of praise) about how high school sucks.

    This hasn't aged super great. Asthetically it holds up excellent, but man, that plot...jeeze.

    I can't come out of this movie.I m writing this review with the same excitement and shock i had while i m watching it.The background music and the climax scene in the snow gave me a beautiful feeling.
    This is what called cinematography,
    This is what called background music,
    This is what called screenplay,
    This is what called script writing,
    This is what called dialogue writing,
    This is what a movie is....................................

    No saben cuanto disfruto un desafío psicológico en una película, y más cuando venganzas como éstas están espantosamente bien justificadas. El trasfondo retorcido y pasional que motiva a los dos personajes fue demasiado intenso y sirvió para voltear la historia completamente y volarle la cabeza a cualquiera.

    Definitivamente el mejor thriller vengativo que he visto. Cabe decir que lo increíble de la historia tiene gran base en la ejemplar dirección de Chan-wook Park. Una de las mejores.

    The masterpiece.

    My personal favourite film of all time, and nothing has touched its' reign since. This film, to me, is perfection.

    The crime-vengeance thriller is a staple within Korean cinema, and this is perhaps the best of the star studded pack. In this film, you have a very captivating visual style by Park Chan-wook as in all his films, a fantastic plot that gives you a heart-wrenching twist, tremendous acting by Choi Min-sik and Yoo Ji-tae, and a beautiful…

    Only my second foray into the intense world of Asian cinema, and after watching Oldboy I'll certainly be doing it again. The film takes you on a mind-bending ride from a seemingly innocent man's incarceration to his eventual release. His quest to find out who and why includes magnificently choreographed fights, some truly gruesome scenes injected with humour and the realisation that not everything is as it seems. Ultimately a real experience in movie watching.
