(it) wrote: A fascinating character study. The film doesn't explode into brutality nearly as often as you'd expect, in fact it lags a good deal. Joshua Burdge is fantastic as the scummy Marty, a young adult who hates his job and curses the society he lives in, lashing out at the system in any small way he can (mainly by doing small-time scams for very little money). Unfortunately, he isn't very good at what he does as he is almost always caught. It's kind of entertaining watching Marty go around and lash out in small ways, and when things don't go as planned observing as he explodes into small (and sometimes not-so-small) fits of rage. Marty is a fantastic character as he isn't necessarily likable, but still manages to be easy to identify with. There's not much plot or action, so Burdge is easily THE reason to see this film. His portrayal of Marty is a rich one that's hard to take your eyes off of or ignore.

(gb) wrote: great movie for anyone who wants to join the navy.
(it) wrote: This movie wonderfully satirizes mindless privilege, while at the same time giving the characters depth and somewhat likable features. Unfortunately a lot of my fellow classmates imitated the characters in this movie following its release totally unaware of the irony.
(br) wrote: Quite awesome actually: Eerie mansion; freaky performance from Gabriel Byrne as Lord Byron. Nicely done cinematography and lighting.
(nl) wrote: A great movie that intertwines the lives of different people in their unique relationship with food. It's so beautifully filmed yet it seems timeless. A must watch for foreign film enthusiast.

(au) wrote: One of the most visually impressive films of the 2000's with meticulously craft directing from Chan-Woo Park. But also easily one of the most devastating films you'll see. It rips your heart out in more ways than one.A revenge tale is only as good as the characters are written, and this film is brilliantly adapted from the 90's comic. The characters, who were apparently not developed enough in the comic, are well established within the first 20 minutes. All characters are brought around nicely by the time the credits roll, which contributes to the devastation of the film's emotional gut punch towards the end.One of the main reasons the characters work so nicely, is that Park provides character development in more ways than one. Whether it be through an important close up on our lead character's face or even a well-timed artistic metaphor, the story is so well-realized through its characters. Being that it's a tragic story that turns into a revenge flick but then turns back into a tragic tale again, you need to believe both sides of the coin. Min-sik Choi and Ji-tae Yu do a tremendous job at rounding out motivations as Dae-su and Woo-jin respectively.In order to feel the full impact of emotion Park was going for, you have to be with the film every step of the way. Although there are some plot points that blur the lines of being plot holes, Park gives us at least an acceptable answer to keep us engaged. Even just looking at the thrilling action sequences, which can be over-the-top and 'Raid'-like at times, is acceptable after seeing the finished product.Oldboy is a modern day classic. Not necessarily the type of film I would want to revisit more than once, but I got the full emotional impact that I had hoped for. Chan-Woo Park majestically directs the comic to life better than anyone possibly could.+Impressive fight scenes+Devastatingly beautiful storytelling+Lead performances-Potential holes in the story9.1/10

Not because is a bad movie, it is not. I was always too tired. But after 3 times I did and I really liked.I'm a fan of Japanese movies and is not the reason that I did like it. Ok, the story is a little lame and with some gaps in it, but everything else compensates it.
