funny line
Lucy liu's mympho character to mel gibson - "I have a few minutes...." Mel Gibson Character - "so go boil an egg" very good

Not a waste of time.
Remake or not, this film is a little different from the usual American gangster fodder. It has menace, almost no sympathetic characters (except maybe Lucy Liu, but that could just be my twist psyche), nicely grey and washed out cinematography, it's fair share of acceptable twists and a lead character that you can't help warming to just a little bit, it's just a shame he's a racist going through the male menopause.

A remake that stands up
Remaking great films is usually a complete failure but gotta say this Gibson vehicle holds its own. The early-Boorman original was powerful but some of the early scenes in particular seem a bit shaky. Both terrific tough-guy films.

See Point Blank instead
This inferior remake of John Boorman's Point Blank is not without merit, and certainly has a more Hollywood style ending, but Mel Gibson lacks the menace that Lee Marvin brought to the character.

Not Bad
It's quite a good movie. DVD Spin Doctor says this is Mel Gibson's 'lost kick ass film'
