Yeah it?s good but it?s responsible for a lot of terrible movies! It?s a little sensationalist at times too with maybe a little too much of a stereotypical slant.

Not really a remake, more a revamp on the name. Jackson was the man for the job but this isn?t a touch on the original. I liked it though and Richard Roundtree gave it his blessing!

More of the same rubbish. The fact that this film takes itself so seriously is laughable.

I liked the idea but I'm not sure John Singleton executed it as successfully as he could have. It got a bit silly in places when it could and should have been a little bit more of a 'Who done it' rather than a dumb revenge film. The lead characters where painted as hot-headed hoodlums one minute and then master detectives the next. A little more of the Terrence Howard storyline would have improved things in my opinion, his character opened up the story and then went AWOL until the end. And as beautiful as she is, I'm not sure what the real point of Sofía Vergara's character.
