“Frankly, very few remakes are worth the time. I was expecting a disaster of a movie when I started watching, but was pleasantly surprised.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSeth Rogen is his usual self/character. He needs to learn more than one trick. I found his acting flat and his voice monotonous. So kudos to the screen and script writers for making it interesting enough that Mr Rogenu0026#39;s shortcomings are overcame.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCameron Diaz…. Of the hundreds of actresses in the movie industry, why her? Is her character written in, in the last minute? Or is there some kind of compulsory need to add a female lead, so that the 2 male leads are not seen as homosexuals? She was refreshing a decade ago, now she is just…. boring and highly predictable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJay Chou. Being an Asian-Asian, I personally never like or dislike him. He has a zero-expression face, no matter what movie he is in. Putting him in the shoes of Bruce Lee is a tough order. Of all the characters in the movie, his is the most significant one. Ones with big expectations to fill, and I think he did alright. Do remember this is his first Hollywood movie. Other than that, I still say he canu0026#39;t really act.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStory/plot. The movie is fast pace enough that even the slow moments get by really fast. After a first 15 minutes or so, there is very little dull moments. One of the few things I disliked about this movie is the elevated level of gory deaths. Is it really necessary? As I said before the screen and script writers did a fantastic job in this adaptation.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor pure action entertainment, Iu0026#39;ll give it 8 or 9 out of 10. However, overall it should only garner a 7, in my opinion.”
