>I’m not big on remakes. I only went to see this movie because my dad wanted to see it and he was paying. However, I was suprised at how good the movie turned out to be. I enjoy Tom Cruise as an actor. Why he’s lost his mind lately, who knows. He needs to go back to his silent ways and let his movies speak for themselves.
Anyway, this movie was fucking scary. Spielberg really knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. I haven’t seen a good Spielberg movie in a while. AI sucked. Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List looked like downers.
My dad told me that it sticks pretty close to the original. All I could think of the similarity to Independence Day. The difference is that Independence Day ended up giving you a good feeling at the end. This movie leaves you breathless.
