When Bala is fighting his way through the horde of guards inside the prison building, right before he gets stabbed in the back, the guy who stabs him steps on a baseball bat. The bat is completely hollow (so when it was used in filming it didn't actually injure anyone), but when the stabber steps on it, the bat is crushed and actually bends in the middle. See more »
I can't believe they got the rights to crucify OLDBOY with this trash!!! I mean why bother... They have totally destroyed a cult movie of very high standard. The acting in this"effort" is shabby, the cinematography is amateur, the dialogue had me in stitches from start to finish. I found myself in tears of laughter at how bad this really was in every way possible.
I think the most tickling moment is when they tried to re enact the "hammer" fight scene with a hugely inflated Sanjay Dutt - it was like seeing a hippo on speed - the original was one of the most memorable fight scenes ever choreographed but this was like a terrible outtake.
I hope the actors and director of this nonsense look back at it and cringe with embarrassment because I certainly did.
Hollywood have their crack at Oldboy released some time this year, I hope and pray it's not as bad as Zinda - one thing this film is not is Zinda for sure - its DEAD from the opening scene !!!
