After being kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years Oh Dae-S is released, only to find that he must find his captor in 5 days.
Very start, it is only one film that kept me quiet for a total of 5 minutes after seeing it. Literally I could not close my mouth, and yet there is no sound coming out of it. Oldboy had such an impact on me that these words are not enough to describe this effect. Because this movie is definitely in my top 3 movies ever made. It belongs there because there are elements that many films seem to miss; holy conspiracy. Although the acting and script are world class, the plot is basically the cherry on cake.When coming scenario Park Chan-wook is unique (at least to Western standards) in the way of shooting. The colors are so vivid and it seems that every shot he wanted to be a part of art. One tip: If you like murder Oldboy, have a look at Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, the third part of the park, revenge trilogy. It even superior camera work in Oldboy. Amateur, however, expect the story as Oldboys, because it would be very disappointed.When when it comes to acting and music, this film is also one of the best movies ever made. The music sticks in your head every time you put on my Oldboy DVD and theme-song coming up, I'm just flooded with great memories (eventhough the plot does not have a single reason to be happy about) . The characters are very well presented with excellent team. Especially Choi Min-Sik and Yu Ji-tae set very convincing performance. I really appreciate this film will be respected as they should, by having a place in the top 250. If, however, it was up to me it would be even higher in the rankings. I do not see why the film would normally Suspects or Memento, which is fantastic piece of film-making and undoubtedly deserves a place in the top 250, is higher than the top 250 Oldboy. They serve the same reason; magnificent plot. But the parcels can not stand in the shade or even come close to the plot of Oldboy. The one and only reason is that both films are better known western and production company. If we all live in Asia, no doubt Oldboy would be in the top 20 of all time. My advice to those who havent watched the movie yet: Go see it! This is definitely a must see. If you have a weak stomach, pull yourself together and still see it. Do not be as shallow as many people here tend to be. See more violence and see the things that I mentioned earlier: World class acting, cinematography, music and last but certainly not least plot. Once you've opened you will see a whole new world of cinema. The visitors it!
