Critic Reviews of "Oldboy"New YorkerDecember 02, 2013
Hollywood's wildest cinematic freakout since "Shutter Island" is a remake of-and an improvement on-the Korean original, from 2003.TIME MagazineNovember 29, 2013
A vivid yet academic remake, this Oldboy is shorter, leaner and lesser.ReelViewsNovember 28, 2013
Sometimes I don't understand the Hollywood mindset. Who thought remaking Park Chan-wook's 2003 cult classic, Oldboy, was a good idea?Associated PressNovember 28, 2013
Much of the dialogue is stilted (several scene are laughable) and the melodrama feels unmoored without the lurid, baroque atmosphere of Park's film -- which, after all, was kind of the whole point.The Film StageJune 21, 2016
Lee's remake will strike a cord with unfamiliar audiences, but, for the most part, it's a hit-and-miss effort that comes close to good results.FlavorwireJune 18, 2016
The first hour or so of Lee's 'Oldboy' is so gripping that it's dispiriting to watch the wheels fall off the wagon so spectacularly in the third act.CinemixtapeApril 15, 2016
It's captivating to watch Spike Lee dabble in genre filmmaking.Movie MezzanineOctober 30, 2014
Compared directly, the difference between both films are more than a little disappointing, but with all of that said, 2013's Oldboy still has pleasures to be witnessed.Under the RadarAugust 20, 2014
Lee takes his time crafting fiery characters and an impenetrable, who-and-why mystery only to rush through a series of arbitrary clues and explanations.FEARnetMay 08, 2014
For a "pointless" and "unnecessary" remake, there's actually some really solid stuff in this one.
