I think its looks pretty damn good. Who do you think would win in a fight between Joe Don Baker and the Rock?

I have to admit...that looks entertaining. I'm a fan of the Rock and was really happy to see that the Rundown was such an entertaining movie (after the simply awful Scorpion King). Here's hoping this one is good also. Looks like a fun action movie. Hopefully...it is.

I'm game. Despite Johnny Knoxville.

Think it'll go R or PG-13 and tag the younger crowd?

I have no attachment to the original (never seen it), but that looks like a pretty damn entertaining movie!

Looks entertaining, I am still having a hard time accepting the fact that they are remaking the B-classic Walking Tall.

The Rock vs. Neil McDonough will be the epic confrontation of our time. I'm looking forward to this.

But I think we'd all rather see Buck Compton vs. The Scorpion King.

looks decent, the rock is just about the only pro wrestler that I don't think is an idiot and I think he's a decent actor

Hmmm.

Yup, anything can get remade nowadays, it seems.

Looking forward to this, despite the urge to roll eyes.

Looks idiotic and stupid. The first movie was based on the real life sherriff from Tennessee Buford T. Pusser. Not only did they change his damn name, but they changed his coloring as well. Another pointless movie that will bomb and sink Rocky's movie career even further.

Sorry fellas, but this remake is asinine. Hiring the Rock to play a real person who was white, and changing his name to boot, is just dumb.

I didn't know his career had been sinking - I thought it was on the rise. Hasn't he been relatively successful so far.

well The Rundown didn't make very much money (despite being an excellent movie) so his movie track record is about 50/50. I think this looks pretty decent though and will definately check it out.

Sorry fella, but it isn't as if they're playing up the "biography" angle. I think they say "inspired by" a true story, and most of us know what that means: the following is going to be a work of almost complete fiction. Relax--you might just enjoy the show.

Yeah, that'd be like making the Kingpin a black guy!

I'll probably see it. By the way, what's with the 'mortal kombat' sound effect when that guy runs into the pole at the end of the trailer? CHEESY.
