First things first: Yes, I agree, this is not as good as Oldboy (but then again, how many things are?). However, this movie is still head and shoulders above most of Hollywood’s production. Disturbing, provocative, full of twists and turns, just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Not for the faint of heart, but a masterpiece from Korean director Chan Wook Park. Trust me, you will keep thinking about this movie for weeks after watching it.
