Average User Score: 4.6Nov 30, 2013I have to think that Spike Lee didn't even watch the original version before making his version. I also doubt that the person who approved the script could have seen the original version.
The childhood tragedy was the father's fault, not Joe's and thus there is a lack of justification for the future vengeance.
Additionally, the ending was removed compared to the original, since there was no brainwashing or hypnosis in this new version.
The story line of the new version is just so weak it's not worth seeing.… Expand
