ldh's review

I hold the original film as a bonna-fide masterpiece, one of the greatest sci-fi film of all times and one of the most fun too. I have watched it a dozen times at least. This version however fails across the board. It looks OK, but it takes such a serious self-aware tone that it's hard to enjoy truly. Performances are wooden, and the action scenes become repetitive and boring. Short of Kate Beckinsale who is really cool, everything else is average. I wonder if my opinion would be different had i never seen the original, but i'll never know.
