Hilariously awful psychological drama with an amateurish pace, hammy acting and some of the most ridiculous plot twists in recent memory.
It is certainly the worst thing its director has ever been associated with.
Big-budget remake of the 1960 John Sturges film, which itself is a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, which completely lacks the integrity of either.
It makes no attempt to deal with the moral obligations that can plague a community (which Sturges explores thoroughly and Kurosawa practically invented).
The cast here is a mixed bag of fun and irritating and the action scenes all exhibit the incompetence of the modern era of cinematic incomprehensiveness.
