Better than reviewed.
I admit, I watched this film with half a mind on the original and hence it should have been doomed before the opening credits had rolled by. Reading various other reviews, the film was never going to be a hit with the so called “connoisieur” However, once I got over my own pomposity, I was pleasantly surprised and, admittedly with a nod to the original, don’t think a much better job of a remake could have been managed.
The remake is not as good a film as the original. That out of the way – as a stand alone and to the viewer who does not know about the 2003 film, this is very good viewing.
The fight scenes were entertaining. Acting good. Good pace. Story good. Basically,nothing bad. I actually thought the photography better than the original. (I also liked the nod to the original’s octopus).
In summary, if you have seen the original you are always going to be judging one against the other and Korea will win. Also dismiss me as a Philistine but I don’t enjoy subtitled movies as much as English speaking ones. I don’t have the intellect to understand every (or indeed any) foreign film without having to miss half the cinematography reading.
If you haven’t seen the original, watch this. It is good. It’s just that some critics have got there heads so far up their ………….!
Why Spend Time and Money in This Awful Remake?
In 1993, the alcoholic Joseph “Joe” Doucett (Josh Brolin) is a loathed man with basically one only friend, Chucky (Michael Imperioli), who owns a bar. Joe neglects his three year-old daughter Mia and is estranged of his ex-wife Donna. Out of the blue, Joe is kidnapped and locked alone in a room for twenty years. Along the years, he learns that Donna was brutally murdered and he was accused of the crime and Mia was adopted and raised by a family. Unexpectedly he is released without knowing who arrested him and why. He meets the humanitarian social assistant Marie Sebastian (Elizabeth Olsen) and his old friend Chucky and together they try to find the identity of his kidnapper.
“Oldboy” is a poor remake directed by Spike Lee of the South Korean masterpiece. It is sad to see Spike Lee so decadent wasting his talent in a garbage like that. I was reluctant to see this remake and unfortunately I spent my Friday night watching this crap instead of watching the South Korean movie again. Spike Lee should do the same. My vote is three.
