Oldboy is a remake the 2003 South Korean film Oldboy. This American thriller film is directed by Spike Lee and written by Mark Protosevich. The original film was based on a Japanese manga of the same name. However this film is creative & quite different in its own right. Joe Doucett, an advertising executive is kidnapped and held prisoner for 20 years in solitary confinement. He is then suddenly released into an open field with a hand full of cash. So he does what any self respecting guy would do & goes on a mission to find the person responsible for his imprisonment. Only to later discover that his life is caught in conspiracy & turmoil. The film has a great case with stars like Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. Oldboy hits theaters this October.
