This remake attempts to stay true to the original. While the story line modifications are fitting the performances are lacking the emotion of the original.
The musical performances also stay true to the original, which I enjoyed but it was very difficult to get over the overproduction of the vocal performances as it clearly highlights the lip syncing. I feel that if the vocal performances were recorded during filming that it would be much better.
The acting lacks any emotion. It's like watching the cast going through the motions and running lines to an empty audience.
I want to give a better rating, but this is not how we should be honouring a classic.
