Release Date: November 27, 2013

Well this was an interesting movie to watch to say the least. With Spike Lee directing and this being a remake, I did not really have high hopes for “Oldboy” to turn out to be any good. But that is why I watch movies even though I do not want to because sometimes there will be a few surprises and with “Oldboy,” it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Josh Brolin plays as Joe Doucett who mysteriously gets kidnapped and his held captive for twenty years without knowing who or why he was abducted. Once Joe is finally free, he vows to have his revenge on everyone that was involved in his kidnapping and other things that he learns about while watching television while he was locked up. The fight scenes would have been more astonishing if they had not looked so fake and choreographed. The storyline was at least interesting, and Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen turned out to be a decent combo to headline a movie.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars.
