I’ve seen this movie before. I actually like the original better than the spike lee version. The cinematography was excellent.

i COMPLETELY disagree with you here. I liked the movie a lot and BUSter did . BUt, it could have been a lot better of a movie. It seems to us that they didn't even really consider the cinematography. But, having said that, It's good.

Really liked this film, especially the neo-noir elements in it. Also felt that Chan-woo brilliantly used the Oedipus complex in the protagonist!

'Oldboy' is a pure guy flick. Entertaining - tho not for children. Extremely violent. A Korean film. There is also a 2013 remake by director Spike Lee that stars Josh Brolin & Samuel L. Jackson

Brilliantly-crafted and very gruesome at the same time. Have a taste of South Korean cinema! However, OLDBOY is not for those with a weak stomach!
