Having been forced into partnership with Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper) in order to save his family’s garage business, Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) finds himself framed for a manslaughter he didn’t commit. When he is released from prison two years later, Marshall gathers his old team — including Joe (Ramon Rodriguez), Benny (Scott Mescudi) and Finn…
It’s the age of the remake. The last few years have seen a slew of beloved 80s cult classics go under the knife, with mixed but broadly awful results – from the lifeless gore of Evil Dead to the forgettable glitz of Total Recall, via Red Dawn, Footloose and Arthur, the remake machine has churned…
