1.0 out of 5 stars An insult to fans of the original series., 15 Oct 2008
This review is from: The Dukes Of Hazzard: The Beginning [DVD] (DVD)
Whatever you think of the TV series and the subsequent Hollywood remake a couple of years ago, 'Dukes of Hazzard - The Beginning' has straight to video written all over it. It is a wonder that this even got made; the budget cleary didn't stretch to employing any 'stars' save for the consistently offensive Willy Nelson, woefully miscast again as a foul mouthed b@stardisation of Uncle Jesse. Denver Pyle must be spinning in his grave. As a fan of the original series it would be impossible to list the sheer number of point missing inclusions and criminal oversights, so I suggest if you have a fondness for the classics, you should steer clear. If you enjoyed the previous Hollywood installment, it may be slightly more up your street. Bear in mind however that it doesn't have any association whatsoever with that movie. In fact there are some downright bizarre contradictions in terms of characterisation that make you wonder if the team behind this film even saw the last interpretation, let alone the TV show. To summarise, this is one of the most tacky, tastless, gratuitous and frankly unwatchable DVDs I have ever put in my player. Avoid at all costs.
