Yes during chase scenes and some shooting scenes. Not overtly shaky.. Buddy would have been even tougher driving a '70 Chevelle rather than the tiny '67 Camero in the film. A mean Chevelle SuperSport would fit his bully role better. He could use wind energy as a force. Agreed, low-key but a great performance nevertheless.. "You killed my bruddah? Now you gonna wish you was dead!" Or "Now I have the power!" Eastwood was in so many good movies...hard to pick just one! I would say Cleopatra with her eyeline makeup. I thought it was an interesting but logical choice for a location. I also liked the idea of Kersey being a surgeon in a hospital who slowly gets sick of the violence he sees constantly pedaling through the E.R., reinforcing his dark thoughts against crime. Certainly the remake had potential with these two aspects but it seemed to miss the mark. In the end I preferred the original movie to the remake.. It was too predictable to the point of cliche' and D'Onofrio's Frank Kersey character was annoying throughout the entire movie. He's a bad actor imho. Bruce seemed too subdued to be a convincing vigilante killer and the two cops were somewhat blase. Bronson/Gardenia were more convincing in the original movie. 6 out of 10 overall on IMDB. It's above average, as far as Steven Seagal movies go but I rated this one a tick below Driven to kill and Urban Justice. Gentlemen, we all have to live here. You're not going to bring the jungle into my house.. In "Monday Night Mayhem" John Turturro does an excellent Howard Cosell. Joaquin did a decent job with the songs in the movie but he can't touch the original. I think alot of it depends on the era you grew up in. Younger people would tend to like the movie renditions more if they hadn't heard the originals first. Twinning! With all those bullet holes in the bathroom it either had to be divine intervention or Hollywood magic for Eastwood to escape without so much as a scratch... Chris and Bill were chasing two ghosts, an unintended joke in this movie for sure... He was slammed around back there like a pinball! Christmas Rusty was the worst one. Yes, agonizing..he is the one character in the series I could do without.
