An advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who was inexplicably abducted and placed in solitary confinement for 20 years seeks revenge against his mysterious captors in Spike Lee's remake of director Chan-wook Park's critically acclaimed 2003 thriller (adapted from a popular manga of the same name).

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[Lee] preserves the nastiness, and the twisty plotting, of the original."
A.A. Dowd (27 Nov 2013, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"In OLDBOY, it’s the hot-blooded craziness that keeps things lively."
Bruce Ingram (26 Nov 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[R]ivetingly intense....[Brolin] gives a terrific and harrowing performance as a slimeball out for justice." -- Grade: A-
Owen Gleiberman (26 Nov 2013, )
Film Comment
"A paranoia-laced tale of injustice, obsession, and revenge that finds Lee plumbing the dark depths of the human soul, OLDBOY is replete with intricately choreographed fight sequences and shocking revelations..."
Jonathan Romney (26 Nov 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[Lee] and screenwriter Mark Protosevich find one or two ways to up the taboo-testing ante, small surprises that retain the tale's edge without pushing into the realm of exploitation."
John DeFore (26 Nov 2013, )
Los Angeles Times
"There is a brashness in the risks taken....For Lee, this weird, brutal film seems to have freed him."
Betsy Sharkey (26 Nov 2013, )
RogerEbert.com
"[A] lively commercial genre picture with a hypnotic, obsessive quality, and an utter indifference to being liked, much less approved of."
Matt Zoller Seitz (27 Nov 2013, )
USA Today
"Like the original, which is based on a Japanese manga graphic novel, there's rampant raw brutality."
Claudia Puig (29 Nov 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"Josh Brolin is grimly impressive..."
(28 Nov 2013, )
