Story: This movie story is completely based on mystery and suspense. The movie revolves around a man who got kidnapped by someone. They prison him in one room for 11 years, then they leave him. Now, the man wants to know who did this to him to take his revenge.

Movie Review: Oldboy is a suspense, action thriller movie. The movie starts with a man Dae-su who got kidnapped and kidnappers prisoned in one room for 11 years. Then they leave him, now the suspense is why someone kidnapped him? Why they put him alive for 11 years? Dae-su start for finding the person who kidnapped him to take his revenge. In between, you can see very good action, kung fu kicks which are very much impressive. The movie has emotions, which will connect to you. In between movie, there is too much violence which is hard to watch. The movie will keep in your interest until the end because suspense will be unrevealed. Oldboy has nudity scenes, in between the movie. You will be interested to know why the villain is doing this to the hero. In some scenes, vulgarity and nudity is shown in the movie. I love in the movie, villain as a proper emotional reason for his revenge. You will see a big fight between villain and hero, both want to take their revenge.

You will be confused about why someone prisoned him for 11 years. But the climax will give all answers to you. Who is the innocent and who is bad you will get confused? The movie goes slowly but on track. The acting of Choi Min-sik as Dae-su is amazing all other actors did decent work. The movie is very good, but in between the movie, you feel bored. Overall movie is good, director Park Chan-wook directed movie very nicely. Yoo Ji-tae as a villain did a great job, his villain swag is amazing. If you like James bond type movies then this movie is for you. The movie so good that's the reason is Hollywood and Bollywood also remade this movie. Zinda (2006) Bollywood remade the movie starring Sanjay Dutt. Oldboy (2013) Hollywood remade the movie starring Josh Brolin.

Positive points of the movie:

Well, this has a unique and mystery story. I think the uniqueness of the movie is a plus point. The confusion part of the movie is great because we watch suspense movies for this confusion only. I loved suspense was unrevealed until the end of the movie. Action is also very good, you going to love that action.

Negative points of the movie:

Overall I loved this movie, I don't have points to tell as negative points.

Overall My Rating:
