My Humble, Unbiased Opinion
6 November 2004 | by (San Diego, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

First of all, I would like to start by saying I HAVE NOT SEEN THE ORIGINAL. A lot of the reviews here of this movie are just snide derision based on a bias set in place by the original film. I will also admit to buying my ticket solely because I had had a bad day and just wanted to relax with a 30 foot tall Jude Law winking at me in the audience and taking his shirt off a lot. I'm not ashamed. But what I got was something far more substantial. And of course there was the pleasantness of a half naked Jude Law, but there was also depth. A glimpse into the nature of the human psyche. What we do and why we do it, and ultimately: what it gets us in the end. Or rather, how it gets us.

As I understand it, Caine as Alfie was a hell of a lot harder and brassier than this modern day version. To the extent at which his sexually-charged chauvinistic ideals would have put major rock stars to shame and surely cost the studio more than a little bank in complaints filed against it by today's slightly more feminist audiences. Some have said that by watering our hero's womanizing tendencies down a bit, the entire heart of the film is lost. I say this is not so. It makes you stop, makes you evaluate where you are in life and where you're going. And what the hell you're doing. Anybody can see a little Alfie in them, and trust me, it's scary as hell. But it's a wakeup call. A tool, if you will. You leave the theater feeling like you've learned something and you'll think about it all the way home. How often do you leave a movie and get that much out of it?

Don't judge it by the original. Trust me, he's still a very bad boy. But he's sympathetic and insightful enough to make you wonder. Let it stand on it's own merit, and not by the standard Caine put in place 40 years ago. They're two different movies. Give it a chance.
