A remake of of THE DEFIANT ONES (1958) with Sidney Poitier.

Although while the racial aspect of the plot was crucial to the original there is not really much of that in this one, and they added a bunch of JERRY BRUCKHEIMER'esque plotlines and sidecharacters to it. So yeah probably best to watch it as a standalone b-action movie merely inspired by it than a full on remake.

Laurence Fishburne is always worth seeing though and Stephen Baldwin is pretty entertaining in this one, plus smaller roles by Salma Hayek and Will Patton.

It could have had a better and stronger (characterwise) bad guy though he was pretty forgettable.

But all and all fairly entertaining, 6.5/10
