Reviews

James Berardinelli ReelViews | September 18, 2011

Lurie, like Peckinpah, is fascinated by the idea that the seemingly mild, non-confrontational pacifist may be the villain in all of this.

William Goss Film.com | September 16, 2011

Everything here plays out to the same beats and yet ultimately results in conventional revenge-minded catharsis rather than queasy ambivalence.

Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News | September 16, 2011

While Lurie could have gone lighter on the symbolism, he ratchets up the tension with deft intelligence. He's not just making a thriller but a horror film, and we feel his own fear in every scene.

Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post | September 16, 2011

Lurie's smart enough to know that we're supposed to be disturbed -- and not titillated -- by the savagery the movie depicts.

Richard Roeper Richard Roeper.com | September 15, 2011

The new 'Straw Dogs' is one of the more brutal films in recent years.

Scott Bowles USA Today | September 15, 2011

Lurie informs his movie with plenty of nods to the original and at least manages a story that will have people talking - if not about the nature of human violence, then about the grisly depiction of it.

Peter Howell Toronto Star | September 15, 2011

You can understand Lurie's motivation for remaking Straw Dogs, and applaud the competence of his filmmaking and casting, while at the same time lamenting what has happened to him.
