    Synopsis


    Straw Dogs
    A Hollywood screenwriter and his wife come under attack from her ex-flame and his vicious friends in director Rod Lurie's remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 home-invasion classic. In the wake of her father's death, Amy (Kate Bosworth) returns to her rural Southern hometown with her husband, David (James Marsden). Her goal is to put her childhood home on the market while David works on his latest screenplay. Meanwhile, David hires Amy's high school boyfriend Charlie (Alexander Skarsgård) and his crew to rebuild the roof on the secluded country home. But the more time Charlie's work crew spends working on the roof, the greater tensions begin to grow between Amy and David. Every time Amy walks outside, the work stops and the ogling begins. When David attempts to avert confrontation by firing the crew before the job is finished, former high school football star Charlie snaps, deciding that if he can't have Amy on his own terms, he'll take her by force. Later, when night falls, Charlie's gang besieges the house, forcing David and Amy into a desperate fight for their lives. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Ok, this isn't the greatest movie ever made, but it is quite good. It's a thriller, which generally means predictability, and Straw Dogs is no exception. The acting wasn't Oscar worthy or anything, but it was still decent acting. However, I did feel like something was missing from this story. It wasn't that the ending left me unsatisfied, but more questioning about what was happening with this town. I just felt that too much effort was put into parts of the story that were never really developed and could have added a great deal.

      The movie entertained me and it had some unpredictable moments. It however, drug on and the husband was a weak character and only looked good at the end. The end of the movie was the best part which, the movie seemed to lead up to. More of a suspense then a horror.

      This movie is a remake of Straw Dogs from 1971 with Dustin Hoffman. It is pretty entertaining but not as good as the original but I would recommend it. The loved the cast so it is definitely worth watching.

      james is one of the best actors of our generation. this is a good vehicle for him. it also helps that kate bosworth is in it. btw, this is a remake of the 1971 dustin hoffman movie with the same title.

      This is a very good drama and the acting is solid. This movie is a remake and is as good as the original. The story is about an outsider trying to fit into a closed community.

      This is a well acted and well made remake from the '70s. Dark, brutal and intense. The Blu-Ray is fantastic with great picture and powerful sound. A underrated film.
