Like a Wet Sunday Afternoon Movie
Why is it we keep having these tired and convoluted attempts to recreate great movies and series from yesteryear instead of creative and original attempts at something new; its very sad if this is the state of affairs and there are no writers left or directors who can make something great when there are so many possibilities in comics like 2000AD or Tornado or Starlord from the 80's if they cannot come up with original writers and forsake truly modern and creative directors like Neill Blomkamp directing shorts and commercials.
How was it possible in the 60,70,80's and even 90's we had original movies with good stories and direction from greats like Carpenter, Ridley and we end up with turgid efforts like this, it is very sad for the movie industry if this is what we are left with, very sad indeed.
The original was a classic and nobody could replace Ricardo Montalban or even Tattoo so why try?
Pointless remake with such a deeply contrived storyline that it beggars belief they thought audiences would fall for it. No just NO!
