Hallway Scene From Oldboy
Old Boy, a Korean Revenge Thriller, has one of the most brutal fight scenes ever put on film.
It is all done in one take, shot wide so you can see what is happening on all sides.
You know those scenes in action movies where one guy kills about 30 guys and doesn’t get hit once?
Yes, this is NOT one of those scenes.
It never pans away. It shows you the violence your minds think it won’t.
And it is all done with a visual flair that makes the whole scene look almost underwater,
with a surreal, steely blue tone to the whole scene.
If you have not seen Oldboy, do so now.
But be forewarned: It takes you on a truly unsettling ride that sits with you long after you see it.
