This was totally out of left field. Someone re-hatched the classic Stallone flick, and one of the first films ever based off of a video game. Except they changed a few things... adding ingredients from a few other classics.

Another blatent Jason Statham action flick....

I don't know. It might be fun to watch....

Paul W.S. Anderson, huh? ;)

Looks horrible if you ask me. He took the original movie.... which was fun, very fun in fact and a mix between action, satire and black comedy really... and then made it into a serious film.... greeeeeeeaaaaattttt :rolleyes:

Is he trying to be Michael Bay?

Wait, that would imply Anderson had talent.

Michael really would have been the perfect director for this film

And yeah, it does look like some shots have been recycled from the 120 car chases Michael has directed ;)

Might be fun. I haven't seen the original but the trailer for this one wasn't bad.

Looks like fun. The subplot sound like it's gonna be paint by numbers, but as long as the meat of it (the car races) is entertaining, I'll be alright.

Seems like Jody paid his way into this movie as well...:D

Is it really a remake or a different take? It looks ok.

No, it takes zero talent to rip somone off, or plagiarize. PWS just happens to have zero talent.
