Oldboy - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Oldboy" follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

MOVIE REVIEW

Oldboy is a unique, disturbing and unpredictable tale of vengeance. Unfortunately for director Spike Lee and star Josh Brolin, Chan-wook Park already made the movie ten years ago. Worse, their remake adds absolutely nothing new, or better, to the bloody mix.
