|Cast: Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Imperioli|
Director(s): Spike Lee
This wasn't bad, not worth the critical ripping it got when released. My main gripe is that it just seemed unnecessary. You may enjoy it more if you haven't seen the Korean original, but if you have, you'll notice some missing elements that make the original stand out so much more. That being said, the casting is inspired and Josh Brolin comes off like a young, stone-faced Nick Nolte. Lee's love for the original is apparent, but that film pushed the envelope so far that for Lee to not do the same here is a missed opportunity. Elizabeth Olsen (she'll be playing Marvel's Scarlet Witch!) was very good here, and yes, there's bewbes, for those keeping track (i.e. all of you).
