We gave it an C

When planning a remake, it’s best to try to offer something that the original didn’t. Strangely, this attempt at refurbishing Croupier director Mike Hodges’ gritty 1971 revenger doesn’t outdo the original’s sex, violence, and general sickness. Instead, the story of a brutal enforcer’s return home to wreak havoc on his brother’s killer is adorned with car chases, techno beats, and cyberporn merchants. It does make one feel bad for Stallone, though, whose well-intentioned attempts at resurrecting his career continue to be hamstrung by, well, his career. C
