Writers are getting lazy, studios want less risks, budgets out of control, prob not so bad I never like the original in the 1st place.

Agreed there are a lot of them, but sometimes it works better than expected, even better than the original: Scarface, The Fly, True Lies, Evil Dead, Carpenter's The Thing, 3:10 To Yuma, The Ring, and many more...

Yes it's a remake of a french film: La Totale!. This film, of course, was not on the same scale as the James Cameron's version, but it's a funny comedy and it was, indeed, remade in the U.S as True Lies. If you look at the writers, you see that Claude Zidi, the original director/writer is credited as well.

Hashtag relevant.


For the record I'm ok with the Rock as Jack Burton.

For the record im not. Doo wayne has a fraction of the charisma Kurt Russell had, and Kurt didnt have much. Mr rock should go back to rolling around with guys and getting rednecks all fired up!

I am in the camp of this should be Big Trouble In Little China 2 though. There's plenty in that world to do and stay busy.

I enjoyed Big Trouble In Little China as much I have respect for the Rock this movie doesn't need a remake. Kurt Russell was awesome in this film I can't see him being replaced.

The Rock has The Rundown and Walking Tall which play into Burton pretty nicely. I'll choose optimism.
