Naughty’s review published on Letterboxd :
Film #29 of the "Scavenger Hunt 2" Challenge!
Task #29 : The film with the most surprising twist ever!
The tale is about two men, both of whom are seeking revenge! But whose revenge will be that much sweeter that of the tormented or that of the tormenter!
When it came to picking the film with the most surprising twist ever Oldboy won hands down! With The crying game coming in at the #2 spot!
Oldboy is known widely for the infamous octopus scene and for the glorious hammer fight scene in the hallway! But it has also earned a notorious reputation for having one of most twisted twists in cinematic history!
If you are a first timer to Chan-wook Park's Oldboy take my advice the less you know the better your viewing experience will be! Be sure to view the 2003 original not the inferior remake!
Min-sik Choi's performance was absolutely brilliant!
