Spike Lee makes a remake of what can only be described as a bizarre and twisted foreign film. Josh Brolin does an incredible job acting. However this Oldboy does fall short. The action scenes are rather hokey and not exactly action packed. There is plenty of weird slow moments which makes the movie harder to watch without prior knowledge about the film. The acting other than Josh Brolin and Samuel L. Jackson is questionable at best. If you’re looking for a mind bending twist filled movie then either watch the original or find something else like Enter the Void.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
The entire plot of this film is completely messed up. It focuses around incest first from the reason Josh Brolin is placed into a little room because of what he saw one night in high school to the revenge plot brought about by him telling everyone he saw incest happening. The plot is just disturbing.
