Straw Dogs (2011) Review

DoBlu
22 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Into the remake debate we enter as Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs is closely remade with just a dose of flash. What really matters? Accuracy? Respect? Tension? It’s too complex and too convoluted to debate at length, because sides bicker and no one looks at the end product.

  • Conclusion: Rod Lurie's remake of Sam Peckinpah's classic psychological thriller, 'Straw Dogs,' suffers from a lack of the same slow build-up of apprehension and suspense which made the original such a memorable piece of filmmaking.

  • Conclusion: Straw Dogs isn't an all-time great movie or the definitive remake or re-imaging, but it's a solid, all-around performer that frazzles the audience's nerves, challenges the audience's minds, and captures the audience's attention and imagination and never lets go.

Straw Dogs

The Digital Fix
27 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs is a shocking, funny, exciting and deeply troubling movie - in short, a masterpiece. It's a hand grenade of a film, tossed to the viewer just as it's about to explode and the effect is devastating.
