Vanilla Sky (2001)
One of the worst remakes ever
Okay, my expectations were not very high for this movie, as the original "Abre Los Ojos/Open Your Eyes" was one of my favourite movies ever. But if (at all) there was a point in copying a great European movie with Hollywood-actors, one could have done a lot better than that.
Disturbing and violent scenes are shortened and moderated, the free space is used for more typical Hollywood-style high-polished pictures and Cruise-smiling (who seems to be no different from any other character from his movies). Even Penelope Cruz (who plays the same woman as in the original) appears pale and lifeless in comparison to her great performance in "Abre Los Ojos".
I can only highly recommend the 1997 original version, which was a great cinematic experience, but in "Vanilla Sky", what's left is a soulless print from a Hollywood-copy-shop.
