4 A good story well toldFilmlover | 08/05/2009 | See all Filmlover's reviews (93)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer A very good remake, I really enjoyed the movie. If this was not a remake more people would say that they enjoyed it a lot more. A bit like "it's not as good as the book" comments, very easy to say but is it really any help? The FX are very good the story is very well told and the acting does carry the film despite what some people are saying he is ment to be emotionless he is an alien after all! If you like sci fi and want simply to be entertained then you will like this film, if you are a purest then you will want to see the film to make many comparions between this and the 1950's version and even then there is a chance that you might still see some virtues is this version.
