If there was ever a reason not to redo something, this is it.
15 February 2017 | by brummyleeSee all my reviews

I've seen quite a few remakes over the years but nothing like this. It takes a film that could reduce Starlin to tears and turns it into a tacky and badly cast pile of not worthy of bearing it's name.

I'ts terrible and makes you wonder why the people responsible for the original film would allow this, think cheap American daytime soap and you pretty much get how this was remade.

It is awful.
