Oldboy

 (2003)

Screenshots from another edition of Oldboy Blu-ray

Oh Dae-su is an ordinary Seoul businessman with a wife and little daughter who, after a drunken night on the town, is abducted and locked up in a strange, private "prison." No one will tell him why he’s there and who his jailer is. Over time his fury builds to a single-minded focus of revenge. 15 years later, he is unexpectedly freed, given a new suit, a cell-phone and 5 days to discover the mysterious enemy who had him imprisoned.

For more about Oldboy and the Oldboy Blu-ray release, see Oldboy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Choi Min-Sik, Gang Hye-jeong, Yoo Ji-tae
Director: Park Chan-wook

Oldboy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

With a gracefully stylized approach to the visuals, Oldboy is a perfect candidate for Blu-ray release. The camera angles and framing of each shot are impeccable. Any videophile or film afficianado will consider Oldboy a treat in this 1080p release. Colors achieve a suitable richness such that the vibrancy does not dominate the noir elements and textures of shadow and neon.

The imagery in this rich, high-resolution picture is staggering. Watch the restaurant scene after Dae-su is released and requests to eat "something living". What follows is one of the most visually astonishing feats ever captured on film, as Dae-su is served a live cephalopod--I think it's an octopus--and proceeds to eat it as its tentacles flail wildly around his face. Each delicate appendage is perfectly resolved as it probes and wraps itself around Dae-su's chin, cheeks and neck.

Indeed, the stress of Dae-su's predicament is permanently stamped in the lines of his face, his eyes and stubble. With such important details to mine, no NTSC image can do this film justice. But the depth and definition of the picture in the Blu-ray version is quite extraordinary. Kudos to Tartan Video and Asia Extreme for the commitment to quality here.



Oldboy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Almost as impressive as the video is the audio quality. One of the few examples of 7.1 DTS-HD, Oldboy boasts a modern, haunting soundtrack. The repeating melody and the gruff sound of Dae-su's voice itself become audible planets in the film, anchored in familiarity, and other audio cues revolve around them like satellites. Indeed, recorded audio plays a key role in the plot, and the clarity and definition is suitable in the DD 5.1 track as well as the DTS-HD. A PCM track would be nice, but there may not be enough capacity on the 50-GB Blu-ray to include 7.1 PCM with the MPEG-4 AVC.
