Writer-director Rod Lurie's remake of the notorious Straw Dogs isn't a terrible movie. It's just not an exceptional one, a liability that increases exponentially with the quality of the original film. And unfortunately for Lurie, Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs was a high-water mark in the career of an exceptional filmmaker.
