A pale imitation of the original...
23 July 2001 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Spare yourself and see Herk Harvey's original film. The director's cut is particularly good. This movie loses the ideas of the original, and I'm sorry, but Larry Miller is not menacing. I'm not sure whose idea it was to try to 'reimagine' this movie, but it certainly doesn't work on any level. If I hadn't seen the original, I would have been very confused by what they were trying to say with this one.
