21 November 2013 Last updated at 00:10 GMT
Director Spike Lee has a new film out called Oldboy, inspired by the Japanese graphic novel and 2003 South Korean classic cult film of the same name.
The film tells the story of a man incarcerated for 25 years in a hotel-style prison, who seeks revenge when he is inexplicably released.
Some audiences who have seen the film at preview screenings have been disturbed by its graphic violence, as Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.
