Love the action; flawed characters trying to redeem themselves in a crazy situation kinda shows who they really are or want to be at their core; the way amoral character(s) interact with each other & main characters that make u grind ur teeth & wish for justice is compelling. That fundamentally flawed humans are capable of rising to the occasion & stepping up is ably portrayed--much like real life.
Think it's a great movie & def worth the $$
Acting Performance of Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne are GOOD!
the story was very intersting. the fact that's a remake of 1 of my favorite directors. i really can't see the diffence between the 2. of course, i've only seen the orginal 1 time, it's probably a good time to rent it. i loved the cast as well. great performances from several actors new, & veterans, too. if you love a good shot 'em up, no holds barred movie. then pick this 1. i think it;s worth a shot. (pun intended)
Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne lead an all star cast in an explosive action thriller about a run down precinct to be shut down for good but things change when some of Detroits worse Prisioners arrive and the only thing more dangerous than the criminals inside is the gang on the outside trying to take everyone out and to survive the night two man on opposite sides of the law need to work in together , based on a film written by John Carpenter , Four and Half out of Five , Good Remake .
The contrivance of the police assaulting the precinct being partners in crime with Fishburne could have had at least a little back story to help us understand why cops would do such a thing. Yes, it's obvious these cops aren't straight, but why aren't they? Why do we have to wait for Fisburne's character to tell us after enough shooting to make the OK corral seem like a B-B gun fight?
