Have you seen it? No? There is likely a very good reason for that...it stinks.
Like nearly ALL the endless remakes and reboots that have been plaguing movie goers for the past decade or so....all this is, is a heartless version of the original.
It has no heart.
It has no soul.
It is a retelling of a film that we all love and cherish...and it adds nothing to the story. It improves nothing but the special effects--which held up very well over time--and in some cases belittles the fans of the original...particularly in the fact that they remade the movie at all, without adding anything clever to it.
Like so many other remakes it is a hallow shell of the original.
