Suddenly (2013), directed by Uwe Boll

Suddenly_2013♦♦

Dumb remake of a smart B-movie about a small group of killers who take a family hostage in order to use their house as a sniper’s nest for killing the President.  All the strengths of the original are missing here, things like a good script, believable characters, strong acting, and a plausible plot.  Ray Liotta plays one of the film’s many stereotypes, an alcoholic war veteran.  Dominic Purcell is the wooden leader of the bad guys.  Cole Corker plays a school-skipping teenager who gets to listen to his grandpa comparing kidnapping and assassination with once having been stuck in a white-out.  It’s all directed by a man best known for his adaptation of BloodRayne and a host of other video games.
