Some of best overacting ever in a major, expensive Hollywood remake. All of the characters seem like characterizations, even the little boy.
The New York locations are never used as anything more than a framework for this farce. The thrills are few and so staged that they call attention to the fact that this is a stagnant series of unoriginal clichés.
Embarrassing at times and even laughable. It is a grandly grating gang of stiffs that are as uninteresting as they are unbelievable. This is so heavy handed and unintentionally humorous it borders on bad and unworthy of the urban crime thriller.
A complete letdown and we have, once again, a why did they bother to remake if they can't remember.
