Every bit the film Oldboy is but more lyrical and with more of an emotional punch. Outstanding.
The best one out of the trilogy
A good start to the vengeance trilogy. Not nearly as polished as the subsequent masterpieces, but still well worth your time
Awesome! So Happy I discovered these films! This director is amazing. I watched them out of order Lady Vengeance first not realizing its a trilogy but I dont think it matters I dont see a connection. I am on to watch Oldboy next! I am a total fan of Korean films now! Ive been so bored with the crap that’s been put out in this country. Anyhow its an intense revenge movie!
