Joe Don Baker, who starred in the miniseries on which this film is based, and was a friend of director Martin Campbell, was reportedly against the idea of this film, feeling that a single film would not be able to capture the essence, story, and weight of the original series, and do it justice.

When Craven is at the ocean to spill his daughter's ashes, his pants are rolled up and already wet before he even reaches the water. Once he is in the water the pants are rolled up so high the water would not touch them. See more »
Some people have bagged out this icon, but his performance in this movie was as good as ever. It was convincing, honest, and true to script.
I worked with Mel on this movie so feel that any review I give will be biased - reviews are best left to the viewers, after all, they are the ones who determine its success or failure - but I can assure you he was the ultimate professional - his career has many years left!
Bad reviews are of course as welcome as positive ones - as long as they are constructive - they are an avenue not only for others to ascertain the value of a movie but also an avenue for those involved to learn and improve (as well as gather praise where praise is due) - but I would highly recommend you see this one and make up your own mind. It is highly relevant to the current economic stasis in this country and a hint of what may be behind the scenes.
