    I completely agree with the closing statement.
    I can only imagine the Oldboy remake, when considering the rumoured names attached to it, would have the spirit of the original’s plot (imprisonment and revenge maybe being as close as it gets) but leaving some of the stranger elements of the big ending reveal, and perhaps a better part of the film’s overal use of violence and strangeness…so the more I type I realise it might not be a real remake at all…perhaps I’m just speaking my hopes out loud. A remake so distant from the original that it becomes detached is the best case scenario.
