    A South Korean film by the name of Oldboy, read it's going to get a remake in english.

    Here's the Plot Summary, sounds interesting:

    A man is inexplicably kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years and his wife is brutally murdered. On his release, he is given a wallet full of money and a mobile phone. A stranger calls and asks him to try and figure out why he was imprisoned. A girl appears and promises to help him solve the enigma and seek vengeance for his cruel fate. As the search progresses, the man finally comes face to face with his kidnapper, who proposes a game: if the man discovers the reason for his imprisonment, his kidnapper will kill himself. If not, then the girl will be killed - but he has only five days to unravel the mystery.


    here are links to the trailers

    It was a cool... I cant wait for the next "revenge" film :up:

    My only problem was that the script kinda lost its way towards the end and the end was a little silly.

    But still, I will be getting this on DVD.

    I thought the mindf-uck at the end was the best part.

    And I think they should get Gary Oldman for the lead role.

    Ah, Oldboy. A masterpiece of a film. Amazing.
    Really weird at the end though when Oh Daesu cuts off his tongue. Not bad, though. Really freaky. If they remake this with Bruce Willis as rumored, I will go on a massacre.

    Just saw this movie. Sweet Jesus that ending was really f**ked up. Very well made movie though. Don't know if I'd care to see it again though. After knowing the truth, watching the love scene would probably make me puke.

    There is no way they would use the same ending. American audiences would hate it.

    that squid scene was just weirdddddddd man i dont think hollywood should make do remake especially that nutcase who did that fast and furious movies, however if they did its should be done by someone who respects foregin flick someone like QT anyone here thinks that Bale who rock as the bad guy in the movie as for the lead role after watching A Love Song for Bobby Long John Travolta and Scarlett Johansson would do well in this movie. i want Bale for the bad guy he's gonna pull it of so well i can bet on it especially that scene on the bridge

    I finally got a chance to see this film on Monday night. Wow. What an absolutely awesome piece of work! There's not one thing about it I didn't absolutely love. Anyone who has not seen it should put this at the top of their rental list. :up:

    The hypnosis explanation was too contrived. If he could hypnotize Dae-su Oh into falling in love with his daughter, why didn't he just hypnotize him in 1988 and have him molest her as a child? And why did he shoot the albino Kung Fu guy in the head?
