Remake
Its a remake of "Le Samourai" An Alain Delon movie directed by Jean Pierre Melville in 1967. And its a bad one.

The original is a classic French film 'Noir" It didn't need remaking,

especially in a society where death is cheap, it just doesn't mean anything.

Its a bit like those other pointless remakes of "Get Carter", "The Italian Job", "Wings of Desire".

What next, The 'Rock' in a remake of "Lawrence of Arabia"

For gods sake, just leave these classic films alone.

I'm sure Jim meant well enough, but saying that he wrote the damn thing is going a bit far. If you are going to shamelessly plagarize, then at least have the decency to admit it !
