I really wanted to like it, but.........
Remakes fill me with dread, you can count the good ones on just one hand. I could tell that from the 15 certificate that the blood shedding would be low and i was right.
It is basically the same as the fabulous John Carpenter film, right down to the same kind of death scenes and key plot points.
I have given it only 2 stars as i did like the way they answered some of the questions that were raised in the previous film i.e where did the 2 faced burnt alien come from, how did the radio operator die and how would they tie in the people in the helicopter chasing the dog.
Apart from that, just another effects filled, bloodless remake.
The other star was for the superb soundtrack.
