Walking Tall

God. Looks so stupid, but then again, I thought The Rock's other movie, The Rundown was going to suck.

Anyone seen the previews? Looks so rote it's painful, but I have to admit, I admire The Rock's charisma.

I was forced to go to this movie. Wasn't as bad as I expected.

But for some reason, Ewen Bremner's accent was messed up. It was almost like he was trying too hard to "North Americanize" it so that it was understanable by the US audience, but by doing so, it made it sound like a laughable attempt by a US actor at doing a pseudo Scottish/Northern Ireland combination accent.

Cheers ... Ian :)
 
Bremner's accent when playing outside of scottish is always a bit odd. His "southern" accent in Judge Dredd was pretty fucked, and the same goes for his attempts in Pearl Harbor and Blackhawk Down. I think he could do some pretty good work if he could get a decent dialogue coach.

This wouldn't be a remake of those great Walking Tall movies in the early 70's, with Joe Don Baker (in the first) and Bo Svenson (in the 2nd) as badass Sheriff Buford T. Pusser, would it?
Those movies were two hours of plain kicking ass, bloody as all hell.

ahaha, it is.
Kinda loses its context - the early 70s was a perfect time for movies about southern Bubbas (Deliverance too) and having a part-black guy as Sheriff, what's up with that? It's supposed to be a cracker sheriff!
And i forgot there was a third one, with Bo Svenson in the lead.

Know what? I think it is, now that you mention it.

Funny too. Cause the trailer promenently displays the caption (all on it's own title card) BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS.

The Rock is some military dude that comes home after service. Finds out a school chum has opened up a huge casino in hometown and has a crystal meth ring on the side. The Rock doesn't like it, goes to Sheriff to get ring busted up. Sheriff is on the buddy's payroll, so the Rock becomes Sheriff himself and causes lots of mayhem. He also recruits convict Johnny Knoxville in the process. Tom Cruise's buddy with the blonde hair from Minority Report is playing the baddie.

I actually have reasonable expectations for this movie. I think we're just starting to see what The Rock can do.

I thought this thread was going to be about how people shouldn't slouch.

Moving right along.

Wait til you see Knoxville in the next farrelly brothers film - The Ringer. He's a scammer that pretends he's disabled in order to take a shot at winning the Special Olympics. Sounds fucked.
