Kojak the Keyword is Cool.
30 May 2006 | by afijamesy2kSee all my reviews

This cool remake of 1973-78 Classic has all style and substance and image with better teleplay, better dialog, better writing skills, better music and a sleeker car (Chysler 300c) Ving Rhames is the great person to play kojak and the rest of the cast is universally excellent, the TV show has some of the smoothest, darkest episodes I've seen, even the opening credits are cool, I Wish they were better remakes and this is the best remake of a TV show since the movie version of the fugitive.

I Hope Ving Rhames revives his character soon and make it even more sleeker than it already has, this is a very good and cool remake.
