I have to praise this awesome movie, in the hopes to get as many people to see it as possible Chan Wook Parks "OLDBOY".
I dont want to spoil anything, but I can say that is a film about revenge, not a revenge movie, but a film about the actual concept of revenge.
The central premise is a guy by the name of Oh Dae Su, is kidnapped, for seemingly no reason, imprisoned for 15 years against his will, and then let out into the world with no explanation other than a simple message "if you can find out why you where imprisoned, I will kill myself ".
What follows is just an awesomely cool series of events with many twists and turns ( if you like twisty movies ) that legitimately shock, it also has a touch of the old uber violence in the tradition of Takeshi Miike.
It feels so much better to praise something you love, so see Oldboy you WILL love it ( or reeeeeeeally hate it depending on your taste ).
I believe it is now out in US cinemas, but you can import the DVD from asia or the UK and I recommend it highly, im sure those who have seen it will say the same.
CLAW HAMMER....NOOOOOO ! :D
