Straw Dogs

EVERYONE HAS A BREAKING POINT.

strawdogs11Los Angeles screenwriter David Sumner and his wife Amy (James Marsden, Kate Bosworth) move to the Mississippi small town where she grew up, but run straight into a conflict with the locals. There’s an irony in having a character who’d never write cheap horror stories appear in a movie that isn’t far from exactly that. This remake of the 1971 thriller moves the story to the American South and revels in all the expected clich√©s. While the original was provocative and exciting, this one doesn’t feel very credible and simply ticks off plot points.

2011-U.S. 110 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by Rod Lurie. Cast: James Marsden (David Sumner), Kate Bosworth (Amy Sumner), Alexander Skarsgård (Charlie), James Woods, Dominic Purcell, Rhys Coiro.
