OLDBOY

Recommended Posts

Holy christ puncher, i just picked this movie up. it's ab out a guy that gets locked up in a small prison for 15 years, framed for the murder of his wife, one day he wakes up on a roof. in a business suit, cash in his wallet and a cellphone, then given 5 days to figure out why he was kidnapped and imprisoned, so dude takes revenge on everybody involved. everyone.

 

Not only is the plot fucking awesome.

 

there's a fight scene that totally kicks the shit out of every fight scene ive ever seen in the history of movies that ive watched. amazing

 

GO PICK IT UP!!!

in the trailer the part where he's fighting like 39 dudes is the best fight scene ever.

AWESOME APPROVED!.

Although the movie is fucking awesome, I really fucking hated the fight scenes, ESPECIALLY the hallway one, which everyone seems to rave about. The only cool thing is that it's all done on one take, which is impressive, but it looks pretty terrible. Punches swung two feet away from faces, total wimp kicks, and just general repetitive get-beatdown-and-swarmed-then-miraculously-get-back-up shennanigans. I dunno, I wasn't feeling it, it's like they went for a hyperreal look and didn't quite make it, so the fakeness gets thrown into high relief. At least with wire-fu and choreographed stuff you KNOW it's supposed to look fake.

 

Any fight scene in Ong Bak shits on this one. Choreographed as they were, some dudes REALLY got their grills bashed in good during filming. One dude on a motorcycle gets a flying knee to the face that actually knocked him out for a few seconds, you can see it in the extras.

 

That said, Oldboy is an excellent movie and you should watch it.

Next on my qeue from netflix.

 

I just watched Ong Bak last night, and I must say, that was some damn fine ass kicking. The move he pulls when he fights that first dude is ILL.

No, it's just Korean. People look at all this stuff from Japan and Korea and think the people who made it must be fucked up, but it's normal over there.

 

It's like those videos of japanese women inserting various reptiles and eels... they do that shit every day after dinner.

no doubt, no doubt.

the socio-cultural forces of the East and West are vastly different.

i don't see anything particularly messed up in Oldboy, but that has lot to do with the production and formalist excellence.

new Park Chan-wook.

I really liked how the scene looked like a platform game. It is a good film.

 

It doesn't have a fight scene, but Infernal Affairs is a good Hong Kong cop movie which feaures the guy from Oldboy
