AllMusic Review by

Spike Lee's English-language adaptation of Chan-wook Park's masterful thriller Oldboy features a score by Roque Baños, who employs icy, Bernard Herrmann-like strings and pummeling percussion to convey the film's tale of a man locked away for 20 years -- and the revenge he takes once he's released. Pieces such as "Destiny" and "I Will Find You" have more depth and nuance than might be expected, conveying several emotions as they unfurl.
