not for everyone
oldboy was made from a graphic novel or manga. with that in mind when you see the movie expect parts of the story that seem unreal or far-fetched. to fully enjoy this movie keep in mind that it was based on a manga. this comment is said due to the fact that he has been kept in a cell for 15 years..........now who would keep someone for 15 years for something he said that wasn't totally his fault. and he ate dumplings every day for 15 years in his jail cell......why is the villain ordering out everyday for 15 years for someone hes trying to torture? those are some things that confused me.
you should already know the story. a man is kept in a cell for 15 years for a reasons he doesn't know so he gets out and has 5 days to find out what happened and at the same time wants revenge.when first hearing about this movie i expected many fight scenes but instead i only saw 2 of them which were good btw.at the end he is hypnotised but when
a major problem with the movie is that they don't explain the history of the villain. some questions might arise after you see it like how did he gain so much power. how did he get the money to build a jail and buy a penthouse. they don't get into this and that hurts the movie severely.
if you like practical movies that make perfect sense then DO NOT see this movie. if you are into dark themes and a weird ending plus a unrealistic story then this is for you.
