I mean, entertaining, yes, but bad in that I couldn't take it seriously. You could?
Wait, there's no Mars in the remake?? This is an outrage. You sure they're not just saving it for us to see later? Probably in the real trailer..? But I guess I wouldn't be surprised, since having Mars in a film seems to doom the film from the start.
This movie was made in Toronto last summer? I remember they made a casting call for people who look like freaks...lol Made on what I like to call hooker street, a street where hookers line up in the night...hehe
I will wait for video, the new Conan movie sucked ass, and my guess is this one will too. Mars isn't even in it. Arnies one is great. I just can't see Collin Farrel going nuts and killing people while he's in the recall chair.
Yeah, I don't think Len Wiseman is a bad director at all. His style was perfect for the Underworld movies, I thought. That suited him very well. I thought his style was a little too over-the-top for Die Hard, but it wasn't horrible. But yeah, if Mars really isn't involved with this, then that might be disappointing. My guess is that Hollywood is growing fearful of Mars stories, which is a shame, cuz I kind of like Mars..
I'll be honest, I'm having a really hard time getting outraged over this particular remake. As has been said in this thread already, it's not like the original was some masterpiece of film making. It was a good popcorn movie that, for me at least, only rose above the pack because of how well they managed the ambiguity of weather or not he was dreaming.
I still have some reservations, but as long as this movie manages to recreate that ambiguity(i.e. not shove the answer down the audience's throat) I think I'll probably enjoy it.
