Episode 169A & 169B: Oldboy (2013)

maverickEpisode 169A: In the 2nd of our pairing of "Vengeance Films," we move ahead to a date out of our normal time-period and look at the American version of the South Korean neo-noir action thriller "Oldboy" from 2013. Directed by powerhouse Spike Lee and starring Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olsen, this film follows the life of alcoholic salesman Joe Doucett who, after blowing a big deal for his firm, gets fired. As if that isn't bad enough, he's then kidnapped and imprisoned in what, at first, appears to be a hotel room. It turns out it's a gilded cage, and that's just the beginning of the story! Who's doing this to him, and why, is something he'll try to find out... if he can escape! Also starring Sharlto Copley, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Imperioli, Pom Klementieff, Lance Reddick, and a very early appearance by Remi Malek! Plus, the trio reveal the latest listener suggested pairing that they'll be doing in the next set of reviews! NOTE: This is a spoiler-free review, so if you haven't seen the movie, it's safe to listen to. A second spoiler-filled episode, which details the twist ending to this macabre tale, follows this one.
