It says something when you come out of a film as weird and fantastical as Oldboy and feel that you've experienced something truly authentic. I just don't know what. I can't think of anything to compare it to. Full Review
David Edelstein
Obviously, this sort of taboo-flouting imagery isn't for everyone, but Park's vision is all of a piece. Full Review
Derek Elley
A wild, intensely cinematic ride into two men's burning desire to get even. Full Review

You will surely leave this movie shocked, shaken and surprisingly moved. And definitely stuck on that poor octopus. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Regardless of how you look at Oldboy, it's unlike anything you are likely to have seen before. Full Review
