    though the twist i DID see coming for a little while before the reveal, this was an amazing movie. the hammer scene is beautifully choreographed and the internet can't seem to get over it. excellent cinematography, great directing, amazing acting, all round this was one of the most depressing, awesome movies i have watched 1 year 9 months ago

    Interesting plot.
    Great acting.
    Beautiful cinematography.
    Miserable and depressing.
    Awesome fight scene.
    Superb music.

    It was a really good film, although it lost me at a few points. The twist was excellent.

    This movie by far my favorite of all time. I've seen it at least 15 times. When I talk about it to people, I still only get glimpses of it, like if I am thinking of a dream that I mostly forgot... This movie still stays a mystery for me, and Choi Min-Sik is and will always be the biggest riddle as an actor. He is on a different level and I think he should be considered as one of the greatest actor, after seeing most of his films. Oldboy is simply the equivalent of genius work for the acting, the directing and let's not forget the music which is divine. 2 years 1 month ago
