    If the film doesn't touch the original, it doesn't hit rock bottom, either.
  3. The only fun is in watching Stallone square off against Alan Cumming and Mickey Rourke.

    A thuddingly dull remake of the 1971 crime drama starring Michael Caine.
  5. It is not a terrible movie, and Stallone has appeared in far worse. It's just that, although diverting, it's too routine for its own good.
  6. The movie around Stallone is fairly dreadful, so overly stylized and poorly written that it's always a struggle to stay oriented.

    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.
  8. Shot in shades of steely gray and streaked with near-constant rain, this gloomy revenge thriller is a sadistic cartoon.
  9. 40
    The film itself is a muddle, all rapid-fire step-edits and grainy, blue-filtered hokum. What is good is Stallone.

Was there a plot? As I said, we couldn't stay to find out. Besides, I had to rearrange my sock drawer. Full Review »

Bad films are not near as bothersome as the ones with good source material and a good cast that frankly should have been more than merely watchable. Full Review »
