It has an impressive cast: Gary Oldman, Sam Jackson, Michael Keaton, and star Joel Kinnaman. A fantastic director in José Padilha (ELITE SQUAD). A sizeable budget. Yet somehow, everything coming out of this set blows dogs. From the lame one-sheet to the comments from Padila that this entire experience has been “hell”, it looks like we are being prepped to have a once gritty and smart franchise turned into a polished piece of shit. I freely admit that I am jumping the gun, we haven’t even seen a trailer yet, but the images we are getting from ComingSoon.net aren’t inspiring a lot of confidence. They are however inspiring ample amounts of vomit in my mouth and if that was their mission then they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams (with extra emphasis on the suck). Have a look for yourself…
I guess it matches the concept art pretty well so… congratulations?
