oldboy is the prequel to korean revenge horror flick sympathyforladyvengeance. i didn't like ladyvengeance (boring :O) so i had to be dragged to watch oldboy. i was pleasantly surprised. i liked the violence in oldboy. (warning:spoilers) in the final climax of ladyvengeance, when the family members went in onebyone (pairbypair) to whack the paedophile, my initial sharp tender shock at the beginning gave way to boredom after a while as family after family took their turn to inflict their revenge and the level of violence was built up painfully slowly. the climax for oldboy on the other hand was more well done. the build up and payback was better compared to ladyvengeance. the final showdown between ohdaesoo and his nemesis was exciting, and i liked that he snipped off his own tongue. the final ending, (set beautifully in the snow too, if i may add) when ohdaesoo decided to erase his memories so he could remain blissfully ignorant and happy in his romantic love relationship with his daughter, was morbid perverse sick twisted nice. 🙂
