  • Critic Reviews
    "Like the original, which is based on a Japanese manga graphic novel, there's rampant raw brutality."
    USA Today

    "There is a brashness in the risks taken....For Lee, this weird, brutal film seems to have freed him."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Josh Brolin is grimly impressive..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[Lee] preserves the nastiness, and the twisty plotting, of the original."
    A.V. Club

    "In OLDBOY, its the hot-blooded craziness that keeps things lively."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[R]ivetingly intense....[Brolin] gives a terrific and harrowing performance as a slimeball out for justice." -- Grade: A-

    "[Lee] and screenwriter Mark Protosevich find one or two ways to up the taboo-testing ante, small surprises that retain the tale's edge without pushing into the realm of exploitation."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[A] lively commercial genre picture with a hypnotic, obsessive quality, and an utter indifference to being liked, much less approved of."

    "A paranoia-laced tale of injustice, obsession, and revenge that finds Lee plumbing the dark depths of the human soul, OLDBOY is replete with intricately choreographed fight sequences and shocking revelations..."
