This review is from: Oldboy [DVD]  (DVD)
Cant believe the positive reviews on this awful film. Ham acting, highly unlikely but easily predictable plot. Poor poor attempts to 'suprise' the audience, at least for the more diserning amoungst us. The usual ridiculous fight scenes where the main character has developed super hero powers by punching a wall in jail. I am so sick of purile films like this and so saddened by an easily impressed bunch of reviewers. Compare this nonesense to films like 'the seven samurai' or even good vengence type movies like 'death wish' (original only), or 'unexpected twist' style movies like 'the usual suspects'. Old boy is rubbish compared to even these relatively average films. What happened to movies of the quality of '12 angry men', 'the grapes of wrath','to kill a mocking bird','inherit the wind','ben hur','khartoum','el cid', etc, etc. Okay I loved 'the matrix', 'the lord of the rings' etc but there are so few nowadays that the reviewers such as the ones for this film are so accepting of utter tosh!

I think you'll be better off sticking with Disney. Enjoy!

I think S.M. Britton is spot on. S. Kelly should stick to the 'Little Mermaid' or 'Last of the Summer Wine'.
