Remakes. You tend to either love them or hate them, and it largely depends on how you view the original. Sometimes the remakes deviate enough from the original to be able to be held up on their own, at least as long as those deviations don’t totally suck. I can’t comment here as I’ve never seen the original, nor yet seen this remake. But I can say that I like the look of the trailer and if I get a chance, I’m going to go see it. Since it is a horror film, however, I doubt it will be in the theater unless I can find some guys to go with because I know the wife won’t go. I may have to catch this one on DVD or Netflix, but out of necessity not desire.
I’m a huge Bruce Willis fan. I’m also a huge Kevin Smith fan (I even like Jersey Girl, which everyone else seems to hate mainly because it was more about romance, drama and family than his usual sex and crude jokes fare). I’m not much of a Tracy Morgan fan though, so that dragged down my desire to see this movie. So I jumped at the chance when I managed to snag a free screening pass from gofobo. I’m so glad I did. So glad, in fact, that I’m considering going and paying to see this movie again. This movie is like Lethal Weapon and Beverly Hills Cop. It has comedy and action and is just fun. This movie deserves a blockbuster opening weekend, so go out and see it.
