Female Perspective here....
I saw this today at Variety and I about lost my mind!
Who thought this remake was a good idea? Granted, the first one could have been much better. I did enjoy some of the special effects and the characters from the first movie, including Sean Connery as Allan Quarterman, in one of his last roles before he retired. However, it is only 12 years old and should have a little longer shelf life before it gets rebooted. Hollywood has really become desperate and unoriginal, to the point where they don't care what they remake. Is there really a need for this?
