Violent and definitely not for the squeamish, Park Chan-Wook's visceral Oldboy is a strange, powerful tale of revenge.

Choi Min-sik stars as Oh Dae-su, a man imprisoned for close to 15 years without any explanation or chance of escape. When he's finally set free (also without any explanation), he embarks on a journey of discovery and learns that the torment planned by his captor has just begun.

This action-packed thriller features beautifully stylish direction and one of the most memorable fight scenes you'll ever see featuring a single hammer, a dozen thugs and a long hallway. This is a dark, unrelenting film that takes audiences on a bullet train to a place that most would rather not go. But, for those with an iron stomach and a taste for perverse justice, this trip to the dark side is very much worth the hours of gooseflesh that will follow.

Steady your nerves, son. You're about to see OLDBOY. (Robert Saucedo)
