    ★★★★½

    Review: Oldboy was an incredibly unique and praiseworthy experience. An excellent action thriller riddled with sublime storytelling and an intriguing plot. Written and directed by Chan-wook Park.

    At its time this movie was everything Hollywood was not, no inflated budget, typical cliches, and no over-the-top action/violence.
