Sorry. Using the death scene from TWOK does not make this fil "fresh and exciting" IMO.
I usually don't find death scenes to be exciting...that being said.
They totally took a moment that was destined to occur no matter what, turned it on it's head and used it for a totally different purpose. How is that not fresh?
Now if they played it exactly like in WoK for the same intended purpose you might have a point.
