Wow, just how many flicks does this thing rip off?


Breakin (pop n lock dance compition partnered with a less talented rich girl)
Revenge (the ENTIRE premise)
Bad Boys 2 (freeway chase)
Road To Perdition (silent nighttime slow motion gun down in the the middle of the street amid pouring rain)
Thelma & Louise (SPOILERS!!!)

There was even some Sergio Leone imagery going on at the beginning.

What else?

You are right. Virtually every scene in this movie has been done before. And I went in with such high expectations, but the acting is horrible too.

I could say the same thing about nearly every movie produced by hollywood or bollywood. Nearly all creative effort owes a great debt to all that came before, so how is this any different? There are only so many ways to tell a love story, do a car chase, etc.
