The Review: This unnecessary remake stars Josh Brolin as a man locked away for twenty years with seemingly no reason, before being released and hooking up with a nurse to find out why the perpetrators imprisoned him.

If you’ve seen the original, then you know the rest – and you know this remake. The only practically new thing Spike Lee does here is offer us the opportunity to see what Derren Brown would look like playing an ultra rich, ultra eccentric bad guy. This role is played by District 9’s Sharlto Copley – and it simultaneously makes and ruins the film. He’s so over the top, and yet somehow he’s exactly the like the film; overproduced, oversaturated and over-everything. No need to remake the 2004 original which is far superior, although this does have its moments. It never really lets up, and Brolin is actually pretty good. Somehow, though, in the English language it loses something.

Nevertheless, as a fan of trash cinema, this just about passes muster – and is certainly passably entertaining. Elizabeth Olsen is certainly a talented performer. The moment you ask it to hold itself up to the original, it fails.

And that’s twice, now, when Samuel L. Jackson has been a part of a movie as needless as it surely sounds.
