Huge flop with large negative critic and audience reaction. And of course, it's a remake of a film regarded as a masterpiece.

I'm not sure if any of the actors were that bad to warrant nominations, but Worst Director - Spike Lee and Worst Screenplay - Mark Protosevich should be strongly considered, and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off, or Sequel.

The reviews weren't that bad. And while I like the idea of doing something bad to Spike Lee (maybe that'll shut him up for good), I haven't seen this movie so I don't know if he deserves a Razzie.

You mean kill him?

(I know you probably did not mean that, but some people could actually take it that way.)
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

No, I mean award him with a Razzie. But if you wanna brainstorm ideas, I wouldn't mind if this happens to him:

José María Naranjo's review.

Edit: I don't know what I didn't post more reviews back then:

R.T. (40-45%): "Suitably grim and bloody yet disappointingly safe and shallow, Spike Lee's remake neither surpasses the original nor adds anything new to its impressive legacy.".

Jimmy O's review.

Gabriel Bahamondes (3/7): "The plot twists are too abrupt and at times hard to believe. It's like Spike Lee wants to replicate the provocative spirit of the original movie no matter what. Even if the script falls apart".

Andrés Nazarala R. (1/7): "It's not that there are works that shouldn't be touched (everything can be re-read, from Shakespeare to the Bible), but it's frustrating to see a remake that doesn't bring anything to the table. It's an empty exercise that doesn't do anything other than destroy the original version".

Ernesto Garratt (2/5): "The original was a memorable cult film; this is a soulless enlargement that doesn't make much sense. It's like watching a video-game adaptation of the Korean movie but with American faces instead".
