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.
38
A sodden-looking film.
