This update to the Peckinpah classic ups the violence and gore factor, while keeping the main plot intact. The film's acting is effortless and is the real attraction of the movie, which misses some of the morally-interesting themes of the first film. The result is a film that is a thrilling and interesting ride, but ultimately ends on a depressing and hopeless note.

Everyone has a breaking point!

Straw Dogs, a psychological thriller directed by Rod Lurie a supposedly a remake of the infamous 1971 Sam Peckinpah controversial classic of the same name that I haven’t yet seen but am hoping to remedy that. It is also based on a pulp novel The Siege at Trencher's Farm by Gordon M. Williams.

A Hollywood screenwriter David (James Marsden of ‘X_MEN’) and his pretty wife Amy (Kate Bosworth) moves back to her hometown so that he can write his new script, Stalingrad, in peace and tranquility. When the couple needs their run-down barn to be fixed, they employ a group on constructors, one of who is Amy's ex-boyfriend, Charlie, (Alexander Skarsgård of 'TRUE BLOOD') and David hires them to fix the roof. Amy soon discovers that her old town wasn't exactly how she left it as Charlie and his boys...
