Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Often cited as one of the best films of the 2000s and possibly the definitive example of extreme Asian cinema, Oldboy is a brutal, lyrical modern classic of the revenge genre. 

Based on the Japanese manga of the same name, the film tells the horrific tale of Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik), a businessman who is inexplicably kidnapped and imprisoned in a grim hotel room-like cell for 15 years, without knowing his captor or the reason for his incarceration. Eventually released, he learns of his wife’s murder and embarks on a quest for revenge whilst also striking up a romance with a young, attractive sushi chef, Mi-do (Kang Hye-jung). He eventually finds his tormentor, but their final encounter will yield yet more unimaginable horrors...

Directed with immense flair by Park Chan-wook (JSA, The Handmaiden) as the second instalment of his Vengeance Trilogy, Oldboy blazed a trail at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival where it was lauded by the President of the Jury, director Quentin Tarantino. The film went on to become a huge international smash, blowing audiences’ minds with its concoction of filmmaking virtuosity, ingenious plotting, violence and pathos. Now, this masterpiece has been restored in 4K and is presented here with the feature-length documentary Old Days, and a massive array of extras.

Does justice to a Cinematic Masterpiece

Amazing Steelbook with art work taht so perfectly encapsulates the mood, themes and style of what is one of the greatest films of modern cinema, much happier than I expected to be with this purchase

Worth every penny

Beautifully embossed 4k steelbook Offer one of the best movies ever made.

I love everything but that cover art

It's basically the their earlier blu-ray release ported over to 4K HD, this how the film is meant be seen! Arrow has been lacking with the unimaginative cover art lately

Oldboy

Great movie don't care much for the design

Oldboy - 4K Ultra HD Steelbook

Ultimate edition of the cult classic, later remade but never touched the original. Re the product itself rather than the film synopsis, I'd been avoiding previous Arrow releases of this ever since I first heard about the 4K release and so the steelbook was an easy decision for me. Decent design, it came quickly and well packed so no worries there, though i've heard other collectors with issues of steelbook scratches (easy returns if you ever do encounter this issue). The ultimate edition of this movie, 4K looks great on Samsung QLED, highly recommended.

Just buy this, your future self will thank you!

I absolutely love this film and the steelbook just melts the eyes, it's stunning. A great addition to any collection or just to display on the front window of your house for all to appreciate.

Oldboy 4k

Beautiful steel book, one of the best I have bought. I love the embossed title and hammer on the case. The picture is amazing, It just pops on screen, The sound is excellent, its a really fine release. If you collect steel books then you must own this, even if you don't its a lovely steel book, comes with a 40+ booklet about the film. One of my favourite releases for a while

perfect art, perfect movie.

Love the art of the steelbook. The hallway scene is one of the best in action movie history

Wicked

The film is as brilliant as ever and the 4K picture quality is excellent. Arrow's encoding is visibly better than Capelight's on the German 4K release a while back. The steelbook itself isn't visually as pretty as the German one but the Arrow steel does look way better in hand, the embossing improves it even further.

Oldboy

Brilliant film, very handsome steelbook. What more could you want??
