**1/2: a some what well made remake with a good cast. It also manages to be pretty violent despite being PG-13. The original was a lot more violent though, fresher of course and just a far better film. What hurts this remake is that it takes itself too seriously, the original didn't. A bad guy drove into toxic waste and turned into a disfigured mess in the original for gods sake!
