It looks so cliched and been there, done that to me. Even with the trailers playing an AC/DC song which really doesn't work for a serious revenge tone for me.

I also feel that Bruce Willis is severely miscast in this. I think they should have gotten a more mild mannered family man type of actor, who would be transformed into a vigilante -- someone like Tom Hanks or Bryan Cranston would be the better casting type.

You have no proof of any of that. Zimmerman committed murder.

Then you didn't see the videos of Trayvon playing Polar Bear games on the elderly or of him bragging about his thug life.

No, George defended himself and shot the punk.

Of course times are different today. Despite what some what some e-tough guys (tissue soft irl), violent crime is at an all time low. Much lower than when the original came out. So who needs vigilante justice except those with small genitalia needing to compensate for something?

we loved it. all the new ways to kill someone. go bruce!

chicago murders are mostly black on black crime. media don't care. black lives matter only if a white person kills a black person. (cue al sharpton).
