The table saw that Burt Johnson (Nick Nolte) threatens Arthur with is a real saw. It is called a SawStop and is designed to instantly apply a break and stop the saw blade within milliseconds of coming in contact with a human appendage. However, it works more by detecting the natural electrical current in the human body and not so much by moisture as stated in the movie. See more »

I know there are several reviews stating the original is better than the remake but in my opinion this re-make was done very well. It's hobbled by the fact that it is in fact a remake and movies are being remade far too soon these days.
Yes, Dudley Moore was the perfect original choice for this role, no doubt about it, but today...Russel Brand is the perfect choice Taking this movie on it's own merit it was enjoyable. I FELT for Arthur, I liked Helen Mirren's portrayal of Hobbs, I even liked that Jennifer Garner was so unlikeable.
Is this movie a 10, of course it's not...but it's good entertainment, give it a chance.
