2013 | Nominalizat Worst Male Images in a Movie

Lee’s Oldboy is tamer than Park’s in terms of on-screen mayhem, but it’s consequently more suggestively outrageous. Like a David Lynch film, this Oldboy seems to be forever on the verge of jumping the rails into the realm of the transgressive, and that sense of enforced restraint imbues the film with a feeling of caged energy that’s disquieting.

Lee ornaments the film with elaborate tracking shots, theatrical lighting schemes, and multitiered compositions containing screens within screens. He shifts dramatically between 35-millimeter, 16-millimeter, and even 8-millimeter film, and playfully disregards conventional flashbacks, editing, and good taste. Regardless of whether Lee succeeds here as a storyteller, he communicates such pleasure in the filmmaking process that you might appreciate it for the showmanship alone.

If Park’s film was a re-telling of The Odyssey (the name “Oh Dae-su” always felt like a giveaway to me), then Lee’s version feels more like a fable about transformation and never being able to run away from one’s true nature, like something out of La Fontaine or Aesop.

Ce spun cinefilii?

  • Palmat'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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • mjgildea's rating of the film Oldboy

    2 1/2 out of 5 stars. I can't stand the original Oldboy but Lee's style helped me get through a story where its protagonist is ultimately duped into having sex with his estranged daughter. The fight felt more fun in Lee's version and Josh Brolin was great. I'm not sure if this remake was necessary but I applaud Lee for having the balls to keep Oldboy nasty and not water down the overt gruesomeness.

  • Mathieu Verbeeck's rating of the film Oldboy

    "Oh-Boy" ... After I watched the original for the second time just a couple of weeks ago, I had to stop after 10 minutes. Any attempt to remake a masterpiece like this for an American audience is a recipe for disaster - even if your name is Spike Lee...

  • T. J. Harman's rating of the film Oldboy ..... I mostly agree with Richard Brody's contrarian review of this remake though I can't go so far as to say it's better than Park's original. I do agree that its a more socio-political variation on the same material. I understand if people hate it or hate the idea of a remake but I'm glad I saw it.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Oldboy

    Neo-fascist narratives being on the rise, Lee's swelling remake of abnormality makes its own contribution to the diminution of the human, in a story of deranged personalities and pent up anger that spreads equally in victim and perpetrator. If critics rave about technical virtuosity they all too easily forget the corruption of film form, which emulates here the script's imaginative twists, twisting the real itself.

  • Kelley Dong's rating of the film Oldboy

    besides anyone else's reviews, 2 details that come to mind 1) the use of asian bodies as prop was ironic considering it's a remake of a korean film 2) the "americanization" of oldboy's cultural motifs was very odd.
