Point Break and The Fast and the furious
or Major leauge and the Replacements
Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo.
Sergio Leone's A fistfull of dollars.
Walter Hill's last man standing.
seriously the assassination plan was like exactly the same
and arent' they from the same year?
Only if you've seen it....
I always though Fight Club and The Machinist were kind of similar.
Spider-Man 2 and Superman 2
I can see where you'd get that but I don't agree 100%.
^^I felt the same way about The Secret Window.
Assault on precinct 13.
In No Way Out and Absolute Power, Gene Hackman's character is EXACTLY the same.
Night of the Hunter and Undertow
While i love both movies, i think The Others and The Sixth Sense have similar plots.
Taken and Ransom.
Bourne Ultimatum (The third one), and Wolverine Origins
The Dark Knight is like a bizarro Spider-Man 2.
Hero realizes that being a superhero sucks, and considers retiring.
He wants to be with the girl he loves, but can't, because of his superhero life. A new man shows up in his loved one's life, who wants to marry the girl he loves.
Only, TDK is different than Spider-Man 2, in that..
The hero doesn't win the heart of the girl he loves.
The hero fails to save the girl and she dies
And Spider-man 2 is like Superman 2.
Dr Jeckyll and mr Hyde
The nutty professor.
Reservoir Dogs/City on Fire.
District 13/Escape from NY.
At first I thought only the one scene where it shows Bourne volunteering but I can see other similarities.
Kind of . They both have a similar feel and the twist but they still feel very different to me .
That's stretching it , lol
