"Revenge is a dish best served cold(boy)." That's what I would put on the poster. Taking on a film as beloved as Oldboy is no easy feat. Do you stick to what worked in the first one or offer your own twist, putting your signature on the remake, but risking alienating fans of the original? It appears here that Spike Lee stuck pretty closely to the aesthetic and thematic elements of the first one, with just enough of Spike's signature style to call it his own. It looks like Oldboy, and with such a strong cast, perhaps we should should upgrade the prognosis for this film from cautiously optimistic to excited.
