My Honest Opinion

I wasn’t aware about the movie Road House of 1989 starring by Patrick Swayze and now is coming a new version with the same name, as we now not all the remakes are good but is not bad to brings old movie to the present trying to gained a new base of fans, Road House 1989 has become a movie of cult and for that reason the new version probably will be judge hardly comparing the action and the performances of every actor, maybe will watch both movies to compare individually each one of theme because the premise is different talking about the main character in this new version that is UFC fighter but also to confirm if this remake will make justice and give more glory to its predecessor.

Road House 2024 is a movie that will give to the audience a lot of action, explosions and fights to enjoy if that is the genre of your preference but also is going to be judge hardly for be the remake of Road House 1989 a movie that has become a movie of cult with a group of fans that love every part of the original starting with the performance of Patrick Swayze, every detail will be seen just to verify that this new version does justice to its predecessor but the new version has different premise is about UFC fighter that try to find his place and at the same time brings the essence of the bar with the problematic customers. This new Road House could be great or a huge disaster. Let’s wait to see it and confirm what it will become.
