  1. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Oldboy

    Non all'altezza del capolavoro sudcoreano, ma comunque di un livello altissimo, a prescindere dai discorsi anti-americani dei cinepuristi. Spike Lee è un regista coi controcoglioni e lo dimostra di nuovo, riuscendo a non perdere il ritmo spettacolare del film originale. Ottimo Brolin nella performance e saggia la scelta di modificare il finale.

  8. Operation Kino's rating of the film Oldboy

    Spike Lee decided M. Night Shyamalan needed competition for the worst director of all time. Jesus.

  9. uiu's rating of the film Oldboy

    such a strong movie about the power and the weak spots of the mind. the amount of suffering and struggle is what makes this movie unique

  10. sax_and_violins's rating of the film Oldboy

  11. fane2808's rating of the film Oldboy

    Not as bad as I would have expected for a remake, not as good as I would have expected for a Lee film. Plus, the sort of happy end a l'americaine, as much as it could be considered happy the end in this movie, because it could not end as dark and gorry as the Korean one.

  12. Graham Ball's rating of the film Oldboy

    Some really negative vibes flying around about this one. Don't know why to be honest. Sure, it's not as good as the original, but so what? Was it a pointless remake? Not really. I found it to be a fairly entertaining and decent movie. No, it didn't break the mold... but, does every movie made reinvent the wheel? Hey, it's on Netflix so there you go. It's OK in my opinion.

  13. sainte's rating of the film Oldboy

    Sure it's not as good the as the original, but on it's own it's really not that bad either.

  14. Cristineagoe's rating of the film Oldboy

    perfectly paced and constructed

  17. DimasRimbaud's rating of the film Oldboy

  18. DSPRKY's rating of the film Oldboy

    Even the original was godawful; why remake it? Sickly smarmy.

  19. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Oldboy

    Simply put, some movies should never be remade (1.9/5)

  20. Lord_Beria's rating of the film Oldboy

  21. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film Oldboy

    Well, they tried and they failed. I'm wasn´t expecting anything that would trump the original but rather and decent take at least. In parts Lee keeps things in check but in the end it all falls apart and the tonality and consitency is utterly lost to the wind. There are some many creative choices here that just does not work. Brolin is good in the lead but Copley is atrocious. Banos score is what I'll remember.

  22. runfromfire's rating of the film Oldboy

    This adds nothing to the original, nothing to cinematic history and nothing worth mentioning to Brolin's resume. Extra star for Sharlto Copley & Lance Reddick though.

  23. Addy K.'s rating of the film Oldboy

    It's refreshing to watch Spike Lee let go and have fun, minus the politics. This 2013 American remake is its own animal—cheeky, funny, brutal—so it's intriguing to read the backlash summarized simply as: "Dude, a remake of the South Korean 'masterpiece'? How dare they!" Sean Bobbitt's stylish cinematography pushes Lee's vision of depravity just far enough to remain real. Apparently, Lee had a much longer 140-min cut.

  24. The Macho King's rating of the film Oldboy

    Nowhere as good as the original Masterpiece,but the only way to truly know for sure how good this film would of been is to see the original 3hr directors cut which was dwindled down by the studio into this lackluster theatrical version.Josh Brolin said that is the superior cut.
