Sweet revenge: a review of Old Boy

Wow! I have not seen a movie like this since David Fincher’s Fight Club. Yes it is that good. I love it and so does the critics. Old Boy won Grand Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival, 2004.

This movie is pure coolness, which makes up both its strength and opens it up to criticism for not being able to transcend the genre that it perfected. Keep an eye out for a couple really long continuouse shots, particular the hall way fighting scene, they are just way cool.

If you like Fight Club or any of Quentin Tarantino’s film you will love this multi-award winning cult masterwork from director Chan-wook Park.

If you like films that is able to reflect and relate to current affairs and society, this movie is not for you.
