Spike Lee’s Oldboy TrailerJuly 12, 2013
Will this remake please or anger the fans of the original?
Much to the anger and disappointment of the fans, Spike Lee remade the Korean film Oldboy. The movie is about a man who in imprisoned for 20 years without a reason, and when he is mysteriously released, he is fed breadcrumbs to piece together the reason he was put away, and who he needs to take revenge on. The original was simply amazing, the style, acting, and ending that blew everyone away was so unique you could never imagine it any other way. The trailer in very reminiscent of the original but with Josh Brolin playing Dae-Su Oh, or in the remake now known as Joe Doucett. Take a look at the trailer and judge it for yourself. I will still watch it when it comes out, and I hope it holds some sort of light to the movie I love and Spike doesn’t butcher it for American audiences.
