It had a very interesting and original idea, and even though the process of the infection was pretty gruesome and grotesque. The overall story seemed to go nowhere and it simply ended in a low note. It had its good moments as well as it's not so good ones. It was disappointing but at least it tried something new that could've been great if gone in a different direction with the story.
This movie is another great addition of the 90's. Because it was very creepy and it didn't take itself so seriously. Also, the ending was very unexpected and extremely disturbing. I kind of had an idea of what might happen at the end, but because I kind of read some important plot information. But if you know nothing, it's pretty surprising. I get why it's considered a cult classic, and I cannot disagree. And even though it's not one of the best movies of that time, it's still very memorable and good horror/thriller movie.
It wasn't as violent s I thought it would be. But it was indeed very disturbing and twisted, which made it more intriguing and interesting. The acting was very good from all the cast, as well as the direction from Chan-wook Park.
This movie started very slow and the story felt kind of odd in some scenes. It wasn't as bloody as I thought it would be, but the acting was a very crucial part of the movie. Josh Brolin was great, as well as Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. And the twist at the end was very grotesque and terrifying. And even though I haven't seen the original Oldboy, this seemed to be a good movie by itself.
