I liked but didn’t love the original Straw Dogs, so unlike many a remake was sacrilege to me but you can’t help but think a great cast is wasted in what essentially is a very average and very familiar retreat of much better film. Moving the film to the deep South does nothing for redneck stereotype and whilst a few new ideas do work well and the final showdown is tense it offers very little reason to justify it’s making.
Best Bit: Tense, final show down & bear trap!
