Why It Sucks

  1. Completely unnecessary, especially since the original film was a box office disappointment and there were no plans for a remake after Universal cancelled the sequel to the original film. What's more, the film was released twenty five years after the original making it stale beyond recognition.
  2. Poor writing and directing.
  3. The tone shifts constantly.
  4. Despite the film being rated R, it at times feels more like a kid's film.
  5. Sudden Death primarily happens in hockey and not in basketball making the title wildly inaccurate.
  6. A majority of the characters are unlikable.
  7. Laughable villains.
  8. Despite being a remake and having major changes, it feels like a rehash of the original film.
  9. Severe lack of humor.
  10. Lame and nonsensical fight scenes.
  11. The film can't decide whether it wants to be a Die Hard clone or a comedy. In addition to that, this film feels more like a parody of the original Sudden Death.


Welcome to Sudden Death received negative reviews from critics and audiences alike and currently holds a 22% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
