This movie is adapted from an 8-volume manga オールド・ボーイ (Ōrudo Bōi) by 土屋 ガロン (Garon Tsuchiya) and 嶺岸信明 (Nobuaki Minegishi). It is off the hook! I absolutely loved it. It is part of the trilogy by Pak Chan Uk on the theme of vengeance, including also Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) and Sympathy for Mr Vengeance (2002). The cast is just great. Choi Min Shik is one of my favorite Korean actors. The story line is solid and very daring. It might not suit you if you are too sensitive (warning: blood, sex and psychological manipulation). It’s a good story that you fully understand only at the end of this movie so it keeps you hanging. Honestly, I literally watched this with my mouth open for the three fourth of it because I couldn’t believe it!!! Side note: I loved the use of red here. The color is used on purpose. Watch the film careful and you’ll see it’s not random at all.
