Audience Reviews for Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang


Not very good version of the Jacob Two-Two story by Mordecai Richler. A lot of it was because of how perfect the 1977 film was; so this one's flaws stuck out. The kid playing Jacob Two-Two was pretty generic and lacked character. The Ice-T rap-session in the courtroom didn't seem to fit. Gary Busey as the Hooded Fang was scary for all the wrong reasons. Mark McKinney and Miranda Richardson seemed like standup comics in animal costumes. The prison set didn't feel like the one described in the book. The songs were dreadful. It felt English rather than French, losing its special charm. Cheap and direct to pay-per-view and Blockbuster bargain bins.
