No comparison to the Original
20 August 2004 | by Robin_MayborSee all my reviews

Well, this is another of these remakes of classic movies, which just fall short of the original and the expectation. By just making a new movie, using new techniques, but using actors way outclassed by the actors of the original, nothing good can be the result. If you want to see a very good criminal story with great actors, choose the original, not this second class remake...

The story itself is almost unchanged to the original, just a couple more action scenes. The critical scenes are more lightweight, i do not think that the actors could have reached the necessary level for the original scenes.
