However, having said all that, I was still pleasantly surprised by this version. On its own terms I thought it was a good film. Solidly directed by Spike Lee and boasting a quality cast, all on good form, it's more than worth a watch.
The set up is simple but fantastic - a man is abducted, locked up for 20 years and then released. He has no idea who imprisoned him or why and now we follow him as he seeks answers to these questions. It turns into a rather violent quest, quite graphic in places and the tale takes some good twists and turns. It's likely to keep you guessing up until the disturbing outcome. Good stuff and underrated in my opinion.
Josh Brolin plays out anti-hero who is kidnapped and kept in relative comfort for years. Inside he learns how to fight and what little he can gain about the outside world from tv.
Eventually released, he now seeks revenge and answers that will reveal truths he wished he could forget.
