Straw Dogs Movie Review 2011
Charlie and football coach Tom are a force to be reckoned with. They will not tolerate any hotshot coming to their town and settling down in a hurry. These two are heartless monsters! You feel for David because you want him to man up and protect his wife and new home. Unfortunately that is where my problem was with the movie. It took too long for David to finally crack. And as much as I love the "Everyone has a breaking point" slogan on the poster? for me, anyone else would have cracked a lot sooner if that was real life....even a wimp like me!
Overall Straw Dogs was entertaining. James Mardsen surprised me, he showed some really impressive acting in my opinion, I mean when he finally does man up, you really root for him aginst the scum in the movie! And we have to remember this is Cyclops from X-Men......
So for me, someone who is yet to see the original, I enjoyed Straw Dogs. Unfortunately I think most people will disagree with me because of it's birth place but give it a go. It's gruesome, creepy, and disturbing all in one! With a surprising performance from Cyclops....I mean James Mardsen.!
