Remaking Park Chan-wook's Oldboy was a no-win proposition. For the dedicated fans, it could never be good enough, while the title doesn't exactly have name brand value. To salve some fanboys complaints, Spike Lee was brought in to direct, and Josh Brolin stars in this Americanized adaptation that may not live up to the original, but does offer some modest pleasures...
