  1. WildCardLucas's rating of the film Oldboy

  2. Walker's rating of the film Oldboy

    I can see why people are in love with it, but the overblown style was a bit much for me. 3.5

  3. meepy's rating of the film Oldboy

    Best revenge film I’ve ever seen. "Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone."

  4. Mr.Rager's rating of the film Oldboy

    Few words can mirror the strange emotion i had at the end of this mesmeric film. I stood silent for a few minutes trying to come to my senses and break through the twisted ending. Though I saw the remake a few years ago, to my great surprise, during the screening i've never recall the essential fragments from the story. I was literally hypnotized by Chan-wook Park. Cult cinema.

  5. M Madalena Alves's rating of the film Oldboy

    A very fucked up journey was this film. I guess, after watching Oldboy and The Handmaiden, I've realized that before I watch more of Park Chan-Wook works, I've got to be prepared for a long, not at all smooth, journey.

  9. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Oldboy

    Engaging visuals, fast paced and a memorable vengeance story with plenty of gruesome moments that stick out. It's bleak streaks of humor and the strange feel of poetic (in)justice also is gripping. Shockingly I predicted the surprise plot twist even though there was an actual shock (to me) that the film actually went through with it. Even with that twist ruined this film is enormously effective .

  12. hexhunk's rating of the film Oldboy

    High style, high concept, highly pointless. The same things I suspect make this so famous among a certain set are the same things that make me roll my eyes. I briefly considered giving it an additional star for the oft-referenced hallway fight, but it really doesn't deserve it.

  13. ZiggySan's rating of the film Oldboy

  14. corativ's rating of the film Oldboy

    See, I defied all forces and watched it. And liked it.

  15. Rustam Chartrand Mendeleev's rating of the film Oldboy

  16. Vera Kavaleuskaya's rating of the film Oldboy

  17. neonalchodemon's rating of the film Oldboy

  18. Eduardo Rodriguez's rating of the film Oldboy

    The narrative structure for this film is easy to follow, chronological, and linear. The film starts with our protagonist getting captured by mysterious people, imprisoned and tortured for years with no idea why. The film then follows our protagonist as he solves the mystery of what happened to him and why. An excellent Korean thriller, well structured with the climax satisfyingly presented at the end of the film.

  19. Harriehhh's rating of the film Oldboy

    This seemed to lack the finesse of Chan-Wook’s first Vengeance instalment. Despite an engrossing first act, the latter half of the film seemed to rely on too much on shock value than plot development. I’m actually surprised the general opinion of Oldboy isn’t more divisive, all things considered. Admittedly, there’s something strikingly cool about the way certain scenes are framed, but it wasn’t really my cup of tea.

  20. F/K's rating of the film Oldboy

    One of the best thrillers filled that has a slick cinematography and some really gritty and brutal characterization

  21. weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film Oldboy

    4.3 been some years since watching, but Chan-Wooks tour de force still stays inside my head, like it's branded there. Probably time for a rewatch

  22. Omaima Charif's rating of the film Oldboy

    Great movie! Left my jaw hanging in surprise.

  23. Malik Dowdy's rating of the film Oldboy

  24. William R Clark's rating of the film Oldboy

    Revisiting this light years away from the distinctly collegiate pleasures and tastes that defined it on my first, enthusiastic viewing, and I must say it is more sordid than I remember. Visually, it is impressively repulsive, greens and yellows striking that vomitific vibe, but in a cold, dry way. Altogether I don't appreciate the see-saw effect of distancing itself, then jumping right back in. Incest leads to incest
