I have not watched the original, but this film was pretty boring and made me feel incredulous. I suppose I should just avoid all these remakes and sequels Hollywood so loves. There was a scene where an assassin attacks the head of the intelligence and he not only knew it was coming (how?) but also put up a piece of something in front of his face and none of the many bullets sprayed at him even grazed him. In another scene the enemy unleashed a barrage of canon fire at the android. Even her hair was not ruffled. So on and so forth.
