    An advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who was inexplicably abducted and placed in solitary confinement for 20 years seeks revenge against his mysterious captors in Spike Lee's remake of director Chan-wook Park's critically acclaimed 2003 thriller (adapted from a popular manga of the same name).

      Just as good as the original

      Most of the time an American remake of an Asian film (or any foreign film for that matter) does not compare or hold up to the original. I am a fan of the original Korean Oldboy film, so I had to check this one out despite the reviews. I am Glad I did!! This is one of the remakes (IMO) that does a great job translating the original movie. There are some changes made to the characters & script, but to me that makes it more interesting than watching an exact replica of the original movie, especially if you have seen it before. The pacing & action are just right for this movie. Some fans of the original will not like these changes, but I think it makes it a more interesting movie that can hold up on it's own. The only gripe I have is that some scenes look really grainy, almost dvd like quality.

      I know everyone is going to cry and say that "the original was perfect and didn't need a remake." Now where I agree that the original was okay and didn't NEED a remake it was far from perfect. That being said I really enjoyed Mr. Lee's take on the Manga (That's right it was a Manga first), and thought both Brolin and Olsen were excellent as well as Copley playing, in my opinion, a much more rounded and sadistic villian. True Lee kept the twist ending of the original and threw in a wonderfully done omayge to the hammer fight scene, but I think if you can put down you inner hippster and self aggrandizing indugnation, and you were a fan of the original or the Manga you will find this little jaunt quite fun and well done.

      Disappointing remake of a superior foreign original, but came out better than it would've in the hands of a lesser director. There are some very thrilling moments and some subtle nods to the original, with at least once where these were one and the same (i.e. the long-take in the warehouse). Some minor changes were made to the plot that seemed to be more out of shock value than anything, but not the worst remake I've ever seen.

      If you've ever seen the original Korean version of Old Boy you're probably going to have reservations about seeing this film. I did. Even though I like Spike Lee's work, the original is still probably the better one, even though this version comes very close to matching it. Okay, one other thing: Elizabeth Olsen's pretty hot. Yep, and if you like hotness you'll like her in this film. ;)

      Having not seen the original I didn't have any expectations good or bad going in so I didn't read any of the other reviews. I really enjoyed this movie and thought the acting from all the actors were really good and believable. I have watched this movie several times since I bought it and would highly recommend it.

      The original Korean "Old Boy" is a classic film. This Americanized remake just does not come across that well, even though the film copies the original until the end. Somehow, the acting is not convincing and the plots kind of drags. I would pass...

      This film had me on the edge of my seat in many points. Really keeps you wondering "Who did it?" throughout the film. Just when you think you know what's happening they surprise you. You'll never guess the ending! You definitely want to rewatch it!
