A scene for scene remake that's still great fun. Odds are you won't be moved or enlightened, but you'll never be bored.

John Oliver

A pale imitation of the 1970s classic!

Michael A. Smith
Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Only fair remake of the classic.

Scott Weinberg

Trashy "guilty pleasure" remake.

Brian Mckay

so-so but serviceable remake of the Steve Mcqueen classic, with a fairly exciting shoot-em-up at the end.
