Probably should just rename it Dalton.

They left the first movie open for a sequel so I guess it makes sense.

I assume the logical bad guy would be Brandt’s father. If I recall, his character was talked about but never seen.

Spoiler:
I expect a rematch with Knox (Connor) because of his end credit scene

I only learned 2 minutes ago that Swayze's first name in the original was James, and I looked that up after seeing in this thread that the first name of the Gyllenhaal version was Elwood. Which raises the question of why the movie makers even bothered changing the first name if both characters went exclusively by their last name of Dalton.

A Blues Brothers tribute, I'd guess.

Maybe they’re family.

I liked it. Connor hammed it up and that was fun. And I felt Dalton’s character and the story was self aware. Similar to something like The Northsman. I saw more of a look at toxic men and Florida bro culture.
