This is not only familiar and resonant, but also innovative in the thriller, and it is the most in-depth film directed by Shamaran.

However, some film critics think that although “Old” is well conceived, there are still many unexplainable or excessively exaggerated points when it is presented.

In particular, the director likes to sometimes only shoot part of a character, such as deliberately not showing the whole picture of the child.

After that, the audience was allowed to see the child grow up suddenly, which seemed to be a surprise, but it seemed very deliberate.

However, the “Old” notice is enough to arouse the interest of many people, and they want to know what causes these people to age rapidly.

This allows people who want to travel but can’t go out can use this film to temporarily dispel the idea of ​​vacation.
