Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "When you have a film that has the tagline of, “Everyone has a breaking point” on the poster then you better damn well give us enough character development to make this breaking point worth something. There is nothing I hate more than waiting around for something to happen in a film. Straw Dogs is a remake of a film of the same name that starred Dustin Hoffman and was directed by Sam Peckinpah in 1971. I have not seen the original film, so this review will be met with a fresh set of eyes and no predetermined judgment. Wouldn’t you think a guy like me would be the perfect target for this sort of remake? I haven’t seen the original and I’m all for the simple man taking justice into his own hands, but Straw Dogs is full of so much garbage and wasted time. When the final ending sequence kicks into play the whole film is too far out in the water to be saved."
