Own this unique Vengeance trilogy boxset packed with so many extra features, a must-have for Asian blu ray collectors.

Often cited as one of the best films of the 2000s and possibly the definitive example of extreme Asian cinema, Oldboy tells the horrific tale of Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik), a businessman who is kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years, without knowing his captor. Eventually released, he learns of his wife’s murder and embarks on a quest for revenge which will yield yet more unimaginable horrors...

Directed with flair by Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden), 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 blow audiences minds with its filmmaking virtuosity, ingenious plotting, violence and pathos. Now, this masterpiece has been restored in 4K and is presented here with Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Lady Vengeance (the other two films in Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy), the feature-length documentary Old Days, and a massive array of extras.
