Kay doesn't seem to know the meaning of moderation.
If the film doesn't touch the original, it doesn't hit rock bottom, either.
A thuddingly dull remake of the 1971 crime drama starring Michael Caine.
McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage.
A sodden-looking film.
Should you get Carter? Sure - but make it the Michael Caine classic Warner Bros. is releasing on video next week.
The result is a throwaway story hidden beneath a messy jumble of weird camera angles, worthless editing tricks and an ill-placed, obnoxious score.
