Zombie Take-Out Episode 261: Crapfest

Oldboy U.S.
Scott and Uncle John discuss the American remake of a Korean cult classic revenge film that, even though it features some great performances from its supporting cast and some clever twists on the plot, still falls woefully short of the original. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2013, it's Oldboy. Does the hallway fight look like something out of West Side Story? Is the romantic subplot completely crowbarred in? Is the sanitized ending an insult to the original film? Needless to say, the answer is yes to all.
